Cloud Technology Partners has announced the appointment of Ronald H. Hovsepian to its Board of Advisors (BOA). Hovsepian is the president, chief executive officer and director of Intralinks, Inc.

"I've known Ron since 1999 when our paths crossed at Internet Capital Group (ICG) where we were both managing directors and actually shared an office — a fast way to get to know someone! As we moved on from ICG, Ron joined Novell who had just purchased Cambridge Technology Partners (CTP), the company where I was fortunate to be one of the three founding executives. So, in a way, our paths crossed again. Cloud Technology Partners is now doing some important work for Intralinks, where Ron is the CEO, so we meet again," said Chris Greendale, CEO and Founder, Cloud Technology Partners. "Rekindling our relationship has been a joy. I am consequently delighted to have Ron join our Advisory Board. I look forward to many more healthy business debates!"

"I am very excited to join Cloud Technology Partners as a member of its BOA and to have the chance to work again with Chris Greendale and the impressive team he has put together, as well as the notable members of the BOA," said Hovsepian. "Cloud Technology Partners is at a very exciting juncture, and I am enthusiastic about the potential for the company and the opportunity to be a part of its growth and success."

Hovsepian was appointed president, chief executive officer and director of Intralinks, Inc. in December 2011. Previously, Hovsepian served as president and chief executive officer of Novell, Inc., from 2005 to 2011. He joined Novell in 2003 as executive vice president and president, Worldwide Field Operations. Prior to his time at Novell, Hovsepian spent from 2000 to 2003 in venture capital as a managing director with Internet Capital Group and with Bear Stearns Asset Management. He started his career at IBM and served in a number of executive positions over approximately a 16-year period.

Hovsepian has served as a member of the Board of Directors for ANN Inc. since 1998, and currently serves as the non-executive Chairman of the Board of Directors of ANN Inc. since 2005. In addition, Mr. Hovsepian has served as a member of the Board of Directors for ANSYS since 2012, and is currently serving as the non-executive chairman of the Board of Directors of ANSYS since November 2014.

Hovsepian received a Bachelor of Science degree from Boston College.

Hovsepian serves as a notable enhancement to an already enviable BOA made up of Todd Dagres, general partner, Spark Capital; Bill Helman, Partner, Greylock Partners; and Chris Pasko, senior managing director, Blackstone Group.
