Los Angeles, CA (May 27, 2015) – Seven Lakes Technologies, leading developer of innovative enterprise software and solutions for the Oil & Gas Exploration and Production sector, today announced that Klaus Besier has joined its Board of Directors.
“It is an honor to welcome Klaus Besier to our board. He has an unrivaled track record in our view when it comes to leading technology companies through accelerating growth. With our core offerings gaining traction and a fast-growing team, there couldn’t be a better time for him to join,” said Shiva Rajagopalan, CEO of Seven Lakes Technologies.

Mr. Besier held the role of President and CEO of Neoware, Inc., where business transformation and topline growth resulted in its acquisition by HP in 2007 with a transaction value of more than $300 million. He also served as President and CEO of Firepond, Inc., which he took public in one of the most successful IPOs of 2000.
“Our future plans and current growth mean there are lots of changes ahead of us,” added Rajagopalan. “We are delighted to have Klaus join our Board, because he’s led great companies through terrifically successful transitions.
