PASADENA, Calif. — VantageILM announced late last week it has hired a new national director of sales. Filling the position is Jim Kubera, who comes to the company from Hyperion Software.

Kubera's responsibilities are slated to include management of sales- and marketing-related functions, employing a strong sales team and executing marketing and sales strategies.

"As VantageILM's growth continues, we want to expand our focus on sales, marketing and customer service," explained Robert Yaun, president and founder of the company. "Jim's background in enterprise software sales and his knowledge of finance and the business intelligence industry make him the perfect addition to our team."

Officials noted that Kubera has more than 20 years' experience in the field. For instance, he was one of the founders of CLC, a specialized-programming company. Kubera also played a role in the foundation of OLAP@Work.

At his most recent post with Hyperion, he served as director of strategic accounts. Kubera's experience also includes consultant work with the investment industry.
