Former Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Splunk to Bring Global Technology Leadership Experience to Company
ThousandEyes, the company that delivers visibility into the Internet and digital experiences, today announced the appointment of Godfrey Sullivan to its board of directors. An experienced enterprise technology leader, Sullivan has served as chairman of the board of directors at Splunk, Inc. since 2011 and as its president and chief executive officer (CEO) from 2008 to 2015. In 2012, Sullivan successfully led the company's initial public offering (IPO).
"Godfrey has been at the forefront of building global, disruptive and hugely valuable enterprise software companies for more than three decades," said ThousandEyes co-founder and CEO Mohit Lad. "Godfrey's expertise in building and scaling customer-centric organizations that tackle real industry problems with top-notch solutions will be invaluable as we continue to expand our product offerings and global presence to create value for today's digital enterprises."
"Every company depends on the Internet to deliver products and services to their customers, and yet the Internet is outside of IT's control," said Sullivan. "By delivering the most comprehensive real-time map of the Internet that provides visibility into the availability, performance, security, and quality of their digital experiences, ThousandEyes is uniquely positioned to become a mission-critical component of the enterprise IT stack."
Sullivan currently serves on the boards of CrowdStrike since 2017, People.ai since March 2019 and RingCentral since April 2019. He previously served on the board of directors at Citrix Systems, Inc. from 2005 to 2018, and Informatica from 2008 to 2013. He is the former president and CEO of Hyperion Solutions Corporation, which was acquired by Oracle in 2007 for $3.3 billion under Sullivan's leadership. Sullivan holds a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Baylor University.
