Magento Names VPs

Los Angeles-based Magento, which develops e-commerce software, said Thursday that it has named two executives. The firm said it has named Michel Goossens as its Vice President and General Manager of EMEA Opertions, and Jary Carter as Vice President of North American Sales. Goossens was most recently at Red Hat, where he was also VP of EMEA for the firm's JBoss division. He also has been at SilverStream Software. Carter joins from Alfresco, and also has been at Omniture and Novell. The new execs cap off a big expansion year for the company--Magento said it has increased its employee count from 100 to 180 so far during 2010.
