Additionally Veson has ramped up new training and post-implementation support for its current clients.

Andy Lee, Veson’s new Regional Director, Asia Pacific, comes to the company with more than 15 years experience in the enterprise software field.

Ostman’s professional background includes serving as Marketing Manager for ICLUBcentral, a financial software company based in Harvard Square.

In his new role as Veson’s Project Manager, Ostman will be working with several of Veson’s largest accounts to manage the roll-out of long-term projects and continuing to streamline product implementation with Project Director Jesse DiIanni.

Sarah Taffee also joins the Boston team as Manager of Organization Development.
