Seattle, August 23rd 2011 — Datacastle, a market leader for business resiliency solutions for the mobile workforce, has named Craig Blessing vice president of sales and business development with responsibility for driving expansion of Datacastle RED sales and partnerships in North America.

Mr. Blessing comes to Datacastle with over 20 years of technology sales experience and has worked with channel partners worldwide.

Mr. Blessing has enabled channel partners to grow revenues throughout his career at Apple Computer, N2H2, Opsware, and most recently Doyenz.
