16 May, 2001 - Mark Kedgley, 32, has been hired by British software firm, Chevin, as Director of Business Development, to set up OEM partnerships with hardware and software vendors in the network management, reporting and infrastructure space. Chevin will work with partners to develop network management systems based on its proprietary software, which enables total visibility management.

Chevin makes TeVISTA, a specialist LAN management tool that has revolutionised mid size to large companies’ networks. Network management tools, while important, are often regarded by IT managers as an afterthought. However, as network intelligence grows so does the need to keep it free of problems or overloading – both problems TeVISTA predetermines, saving users money while keeping essential or mission-critical services available.

Kedgley’s 12 years’ experience in the networking industry (Jaguar Communications, C&W) has taught him much about demands businesses place on their networks. In particular, he found that a lack of immediate and cost effective diagnostic and management tools cost many companies dearly: “As a Systems Integrator, we would use Chevin’s software to provide us with the realistic and immediate answers to customers network problems,” he explains. “Too often, companies would simply lack the knowledge or understanding of what was going on over their networks.” This led, Kedgley states, to “a combination of overspending and then disaster recovery as the new systems didn’t fit into place.”

He continued: “The opportunity for Chevin is huge. The rest of the market is boxed in, restricted by the limitations imposed by SNMP and Rmon as what is accepted to be the only means of providing network management – Chevin technology removes these limitations to elevate Network Management to a new level.”

Chevin CEO John Earley states: “Mark saw the value of Chevin’s software first hand when he was the highest performing salesman at Jaguar. He knows exactly how businesses profit by using our product and he’s the right man to increase visibility of the essential service we offer the business community.”



Chevin is a leading provider of innovative software systems that enable organizations to manage and optimize their mission-critical networks. Its flagship product, TeVISTA, is platform-independent and gives a real-time overview of everything that is happening on the network as well as historical reports. All sizes of distributed networks can be managed remotely through intuitive graphical interfaces. Likely problems can be anticipated and avoided so that downtime is prevented, and network capacity can be scaled to meet demand.

Chevin was founded in 1989 and has offices in Europe, the US and Asia Pacific. Its software provides solutions for organizations whose business success depends on the effectiveness of their network and who find ease of use and a low cost of ownership particularly appealing. Customers include telcos and service providers, blue-chip companies, e-businesses and medium and large enterprises. Users of Chevin technology include AT&T, BT, ICL, British Gas, Securicor and Reuters.
