NComputing appoints co-founder Young Song as new CEO


NComputing has named co-founder and longtime board member Young Song as its new CEO. Young brings over 20 years of technology vision and entrepreneurial leadership with a focus on products that deliver life-enhancing value to education, business and consumers.

Young replaces Raj Dhingra, who led the transformation of NComputing between 2011 – 2014 from a hardware-driven company focused on the Education, SMB segments and emerging countries, to a company with three product lines, increasingly software-driven, expanding into mid-market and enterprise segments worldwide. NComputing currently holds the #3 position in the worldwide thin client device market with 18% market share[1] and was named a Major Player in the IDC MarketScape Worldwide Client Virtualization Software 2013 Vendor Assessment Report.  Raj will remain with the company in an advisory role and support Young Song and the Board of Directors through this leadership transition.

Young co-founded NComputing in 2003 and successfully led the company through its early growth phases, leading to a current position that encompasses over 70,000 education and business customers and 20 million daily users across over 140 countries worldwide.

After six years of service at NComputing in executive management positions including Chief Executive Officer, President and Chief Operating Officer, Young remained an active director of the company. Prior to rejoining NComputing, he founded Booga Ventures, an investment, advisory and mentoring firm dedicated to helping start-up companies commercialize new ideas and technologies or expand into new geographic markets. Young was also Founder and CEO of ZeroDesktop, Inc., a developer of free cloud content management tools and Web apps that enable people to gain control of their documents, emails, photos, videos, music and social content that have become scattered across multiple devices and cloud services.
