Bertrand Serlet joins Parallels Board of Directors

Today Paralles announced the appointment of Bertrand Serlet, former Senior Vice President (SVP) of Software Engineering at Apple Inc., to its board of directors.

Serlet, in his 14years history at Apple, was one of the supervisors of the release of Apple’s OS X Tiger, Leopard and Snow Leopard. His role as a non-executive director for Paralles will accelerate growth and integration among Parallels products and Apple’s operating systems.

With Parallels Desktop, Parallels became a critical developer for the Mac platform, and I got to know and appreciate the Parallels leadership team.  I also discovered Parallels deep involvement with the cloud, represented by its rich portfolio of products.  I look forward to drawing on my career at Apple to help guide Parallels as it continues on its impressive growth trajectory

said Serlet.
