TAMPA, Fla. – July 9, 2008 – SAXOTECH today announced that Marcel Badowski has been named senior vice president of services. In this newly created position, Marcel is responsible for managing the company’s worldwide professional services organization, as well as its managed hosting operations supporting media company websites from  North America, Europe and Asia. Marcel was previously VP of advertising operations for Atex Americas. In his new role, he reports directly to SAXOTECH President and Chief Executive Officer Anders Christiansen.

“Marcel comes to us with a wealth of international media industry experience in executive level leadership roles,” said Anders Christiansen. “He brings a strong cultural appreciation, having lived and worked in multiple countries throughout his career and his experience will help us facilitate best-of-class services and idea sharing throughout the global saxotechonline.community.”

Marcel’s cross-Atlantic responsibilities at SAXOTECH include oversight of:

  • SAXOTECH Managed Hosting Operations. The company provides turnkey managed hosting services for dynamic, database-driven media company websites from data centers in Oslo, Norway and Sterling, Virginia, U.S., delivering more than 350 million page views per month.
  • Software as a Service (SaaS) and Support. SAXOTECH’s product roadmap includes an increasing emphasis on delivering applications as a web-based service, and Marcel’s organization will work closely with product development to provide a world-class infrastructure for SaaS product offerings. In addition, he will oversee ongoing support of several centralized group deployments of the SAXOTECH Online system, including Gannett’s self-hosted North American implementation that provides a group-wide digital publishing framework for its Information Center architecture.
  • Enterprise Implementation Services. SAXOTECH delivers deep media industry experience to help its customers manage change throughout the enterprise as more companies adopt the Mediaware Center for multi-channel content management. The company operates regional support and service centers in Tampa, Fla. and Aalborg, Denmark. Marcel will help bridge idea sharing and best practices both internally, and within the thousands of users that make up a vibrant worldwide user community.

Marcel held several key management positions at Atex from 1985 through 2006, including a multiple year assignment in Singapore where he helped build engineering and general management skills across the company’s Asian business operation. In 2006, he was recruited by Mactive Inc. as the VP of professional services and VP of operations.

In 2007, he saw his career come full circle as Atex merged with both Mactive and Unisys Publishing, at which time he became VP of advertising operations for Atex Americas. In this most recent assignment he had full responsibility for professional services, project management and customer support for all advertising and circulation products. He earned a B.Sc. from Birmingham University, Birmingham, England.
