Former Bromium CEO and industry veteran to lead the company while driving market expansion, technology innovation, and customer success
New York City, NY. – December 4, 2019 – AppViewX, the pioneer and leader in modular, low-code IT automation and orchestration for NetOps and DevSecOps, today announced the appointment of Gregory Webb as Chief Executive Officer and member of the AppViewX Board of Directors. Webb will lead the company through its next phase of rapid growth, driven by the enterprise need for application delivery automation, certificate lifecycle automation, and network security automation for improved agility, availability and security.
A key executive who has built effective go-to-market, customer success, and engineering teams in high-growth technology startups, Webb brings over 15 years of experience in information technology and security to AppViewX with an outstanding performance record.
The company also announced other executive appointments, including Mike Gregoire, currently a partner at Brighton Park Capital and former Chairman and CEO at CA Technologies, as Executive Chairman of the Board, Anil Arora as Chief Financial Officer and Larry Biagini, former CIO of General Electric and CTO of Zscaler, as a board advisor. Ryan Windham, former AppViewX CEO, will remain an advisor. Earlier this year, AppViewX announced a $30M growth-equity round led by Brighton Park Capital to drive continued expansion and innovation.
“I’m delighted to welcome Gregory to AppViewX as CEO,” said Mike Gregoire. “He brings highly relevant experience in the enterprise software and security industry and has led companies and teams in scaling for growth. Increased IT infrastructure and management complexities combined with multi-cloud environments and shortened application development cycles dramatically heighten the risk of human error, costly outages, and security incidents. Analysts predict that DevOps and NetOps automation tools will be used by more than 45% of enterprises by 2021, a 350% increase since 2018. AppViewX solves the challenges of Digital Transformation with a modern, scalable platform built for the enterprise. Gregory is the ideal candidate to advance AppViewX’s automation platform and lead the company through its next phase of customer adoption and growth.”
“AppViewX has proven to be a tremendously innovative company with a proven track record for solving enterprise customer problems,” said Gregory Webb, AppViewX CEO. “As commercial and government organizations continue to migrate from legacy to new IT with DevOps, multi-cloud environments, and microservices, new capabilities like intuitive, context-aware automation and orchestration are crucial. AppViewX has a great history of winning large recurring revenue deals with global enterprises by taking market share from incumbents and replacing manual IT processes with automation through superior product and customer experience. I look forward to building on this momentum through the next phase of our growth as we scale, recruit and onboard global go-to-market and field sales experts based on customer demand for our low-code platform.”
