Tom Niermeyer Joins HostBridge Technology as President

HostBridge Technology, a provider of IBM mainframe application modernization, integration, and analytics software today announces Tom Niermeyer has joined the company as its president. As president, Niermeyer will have primary responsibility for leading sales and marketing efforts. 
HostBridge co-founder and CEO Russ Teubner will remain in his current role and increase his focus on developing the HostBridge suite of solutions. In particular, he will expand his role in collaborating with current and prospective HostBridge customers. Through the years, these close collaborations have yielded a steady stream of new products, features and services. 
“HostBridge is experiencing record growth,” said Teubner. “Bringing Tom on board helps us be more agile in responding to the growing market opportunities before us. It also lets our team have greater focus on what each individual is best at, including myself. Tom has worked in the IBM System Z space for nearly three decades and has been an integral part of the expansion and growth years at BMC, which aligns very well with what we are trying to achieve at HostBridge. The interest in HostBridge solutions to enable CICS modernization is at an all-time high, and in his new role, Tom will help us scale to meet the demand.”
“My reason for joining HostBridge is pretty simple,” said Niermeyer. “The market opportunity for mainframe modernization is significant with underlying business requirements of reducing costs while dramatically improving the functionality, usability, and accessibility of mainframe assets. The HostBridge API-centric approach offers advantages in meeting modernization requirements with faster development times using web services and using less CPU resources through orchestration and zIIP enablement. Ultimately, HostBridge can quantifiably reduce costs, increase business agility and decrease the risk of many of these transformation projects with a modern-day API approach. We have a tremendous opportunity to scale our business in a big way.”
