TEL AVIV, Israel, February 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

RiT Technologies (NASDAQ: RITT) today announced that it has appointed Rob Tansley, an 18-year veteran from the Data Center IT industry, to manage its UK-based sales activities. As RiT's UK Sales Director, Mr. Tansley has been given the task of spearheading the Company's accelerated sales efforts in high-potential UK markets, including the establishment of new partnerships and opening new vertical markets.

For 10 years prior to representing RiT Technologies, Mr. Tansley managed a number of successful EMEA sales teams in the data center infrastructure market.

Commenting on the news, Dr. Vadim Leiderman, RiT's President and CEO, said, "Rob is a dynamic professional with a proven track record, impressive knowledge and broad contacts throughout the industry. We have mandated him with expanding our business beyond our existing client base in the financial, transport and public sectors, and with growing the market share of our DCIM and IIM products throughout the UK. With the right products and the right sales approach, we aim to assure that RiT is the logical choice for every IT and data center manager looking for flexible, highly cost-effective solutions that integrate the industry's most advanced software, hardware and cabling components."

Rob Tansley added, "I am excited to join the company that pioneered the entire IIM concept, and that is now bringing game-changing technologies to the data center world. The reality of today's data centers is overwhelming: with literally millions of servers being deployed in massive data centers for cloud-based applications and global knowledge bases, IT teams are finding it nearly impossible to track connectivity, provisioning, power and cooling resources without specialized systems. As such, the time has arrived for the break-out of managed infrastructure, and we at RiT, with the right products, the right knowledge and the right approach, will lead the charge."
