Apposite® Technologies, an industry leader
in application performance testing over WAN, announced that it has appointed
Neal Roche as CEO, Alex Popovsky as CTO, and Court Buell as VP of Sales.
Neal Roche has a long history in the testing industry. With over 15 years of
experience with network testing and validation companies Ixia and Spirent, he has
held a number of positions in product management, sales and marketing. His unique

to focus on the rapidly growing application performance testing market.
Apposite’s WAN emulation appliances simulate network conditions to test the
performance of applications in the lab under real-world conditions. IT professionals
can realistically simulate the complex network conditions that challenge today’s
cloud-based services. Offering a unique combination of ease-of-use, test lab-level
precision, and unmatched value, Apposite’s products are widely deployed by leading
enterprises, application developers, telecoms carriers, and government and military
organizations across the world.
New CTO Alex Popovsky will head the product development and engineering teams. Prior
to joining Apposite, Alex was a senior technical leader at Cisco Systems where he
focused on software architecture and network virtualization management. Popovsky
holds a Master’s Degree in computer science and mathematics.
New VP of Sales, Court Buell, comes from a strong background in network testing
sales through his experience in the network virtualization product groups at Hewlett
Packard and Shunra Software. His network testing background and connections with
Apposite’s target customers will be invaluable to the company’s sales expansion.
