Amsterdam, the Netherlands — Bright Computing, the leader in high performance infrastructure management solutions for cloud, big data and HPC, today announced that Clemens Engler has joined the company to lead business development across the regions of Europe, Middle East and Africa.
Mr. Engler brings a wealth of enterprise experience to Bright, spanning research and development, marketing, partner development, as well as sales and sales management.
Lee Carter, VP EMEA, commented; “We are delighted that Clemens has joined the Bright EMEA team. He has many years of relevant business experience that will stand him in good stead to nurture our important partner relationships, with a focus on enabling and empowering our partners to grow the Bright footprint across EMEA.”
Prior to joining Bright, Mr. Engler provided business development expertise to a number of software companies in Germany. Previously, Mr. Engler worked in IBM’s ISV and Developer Relations team as Partner Executive and Cloud Leader in Europe and Germany, and also held the role of CTO at IBM EMEA Venture Development; a team responsible for building, growing and maintaining IBM’s relationships with Venture Capitalists across the Region.
During this period, Mr. Engler was a SaaS Evangelist, supporting software companies in their transition to the new cloud-based business model; a completely new business paradigm and innovation space for software companies at that time.

Bright helps companies concentrate on their business without having to waste precious time and resources managing their infrastructure. Our partners in EMEA play a significant and important role in our strategy, and I look forward to working with them to take each partnership to the next level for mutual benefit and to better serve our common customers”.
