Mancala Networks reinforces management team

The privately held network technology company, Mancala Networks, specialized in the development of innovative IP network control and management products, today announced the appointment of Philippe Marxgut as VP Business Development. Mr. Marxgut has more than 20 years of experience in numerous executive IT management positions within several large, multi-national companies. He brings invaluable customer focused expertise to reinforce Mancala's multi-vertical strategy, especially in the retail sector. Mr Marxgut also takes an equity stake in the company.

Mancala Networks has developed an innovative network services platform that enables mid to large sized enterprises to more easily control, manage and monitor their distributed network infrastructure. The Mancala Network Controller consolidates all existing network services into a global network intelligence.

With its experienced and talented team, unique value proposition and breakthrough technology, Mancala Networks has the potential of revolutionizing the way IP networks are managed and controlled,” said Philippe Marxgut, Vice President of Business Development.
