Aventiv (www.nomadesk.com/aventiv), a managed-service provider of Internet-based software solutions, appoints Mr. Yves Michali as independent director.
Aventiv created NomaDesk, the first virtual fileserver that lets business teams intuitively edit, share, store and synchronize documents effortlessly and securely across company boundaries and the Internet.

Yves Michali brings considerable software industry experience to the company. After serving as General Manager of Novell France he spent ten years at Microsoft, six of which were based in Seattle. Returning to France, he oversaw iMediation's product strategy and co-founded Mobiclick. He was subsequently head of EMEA operations for Groove Networks, where he worked until the company was sold to Microsoft by founder Ray Ozzie, the creator of Lotus Notes.

“NomaDesk is well-positioned to become a successful product. The team has done a very good job making a feature-rich collaborative tool that is easy to use”, said Yves MICHALI.

"We are proud to have Yves join our board. We strongly believe that having the right people will make all the difference in this increasingly competitive environment. This applies to the management team as well as the board”, said Bruno SEGERS, Aventiv's Chairman.
