Ooyala Welcomes Dave Hare

February 1, 2012

We're excited to announce Dave Hare as Ooyala’s new senior vice president of global services. With deep experience with large-scale enterprises, Dave is well suited to lead Ooyala as we expand and build out our service and consulting operations around the world.

Hare comes to us from Symantec, where he served as vice president of Enterprise Support Services. He previously held senior executive roles at PeopleSoft, Oracle, Deltek and Aspect Communications. During his three years at Oracle, he led more than 5,000 employees and oversaw $4 billion in revenue as senior vice president for global product support. 
 
Ooyala CEO Jay Fulcher said Hare's experience comes at a key time, in the midst of strong domestic and international growth. His leadership will be especially crucial as we continue to build out our digital video ecosystem of distribution and technology partners, such as Yahoo! Japan, who will work closely with Hare’s consulting teams.
 
"Dave knows first-hand what it takes to build and scale world-class services organizations, and he brings a keen awareness that customer success is our most important metric,” Fulcher said.
 
Welcome aboard, Dave.
