GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Doxa Energy Ltd (“Doxa” or the “Company”) and ProStar Geocorp Inc. (“ProStar”) jointly announce that Vasa Dasan has joined ProStar’s executive team as Chief Operating Officer and member of its Board of Directors. Vasa will be responsible for building, managing and leading the product management, software development, professional services and customer success at ProStar. He will be managing the ProStar teams in Colorado, North Carolina and British Columbia, Canada.
Vasanthan ‘Vasa’ Dasan is a respected and renowned technology veteran known for driving technical strategy, innovation and execution in cloud computing. Vasa spent more than 15 years of his career at Sun Microsystems where he served as chief technologist for Sun’s Cloud Computing Practice and a decade as Distinguished Engineer and CTO for Sun’s $5.1 billion SunService division. Prior to Sun, Vasa held engineering positions at Intergraph and Hewlett Packard.
Mr. Dasan stated: “My decision to join ProStar was based on how impressed I was with their solution, the number of patents that had been issued to a start-up, and the depth of the development team. Of equal importance is that ProStar’s cloud and mobile solutions provide a tremendous opportunity to address a major global issue of damage to buried infrastructure that impacts the safety of the public and the environment. ProStar’s technology has the potential to change the way we view the world. I am very excited to join the management team and to serve as a Board Director.”
Before joining ProStar, Vasa led the software development efforts at University of Colorado at Boulder. Prior to that Vasa was the VP of Engineering at Symplified, a single sign-on startup acquired by RSA, a division of DELL-EMC. Prior to Symplified, Vasa was the first engineering hire at Wayin, a mobile and web digital marketing platform founded by Scott McNealy, co-founder of Sun Microsystems. As CTO, Vasa built and led the team that developed Wayin’s services for iPhone, iPad and Android devices and Java backend services operating on Amazon Web Services.

He is a true technologist who brings an extraordinary set of leadership, business, engineering, and project management skills to us in addition to his global network of corporate and academic relationships.” Tucker continued: “We are now ramping up our operations in anticipation of being a publicly traded company in just a few months time and Vasa’s experience in managing multi-billion-dollar companies and early stage startups will be very beneficial to ProStar in terms of guidance, creating market value, and meeting our corporate objectives.”
