ARLINGTON, Va., Oct. 05, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DivvyCloud, a leading developer of technology to automate and manage cloud infrastructure, today announced the expansion of its executive team with the appointment of Christopher Hertz as Chief Marketing Officer. Hertz will scale DivvyCloud’s sales and marketing to help drive growth and customer success.
Hertz’s hire comes on the heels of DivvyCloud’s announcement that it received $6,000,000 in equity funding led by RTP Ventures. DivvyCloud will use the funds to scale its sales and marketing operations, under Hertz’s leadership, as well as accelerate development of its cloud infrastructure governance and security platform.
“It is an exciting time to join the DivvyCloud team. Long-term customers such as General Electric, Discovery Communications and Fannie Mae, use DivvyCloud to enable their multi- and hybrid- cloud strategies,” said Hertz. “We empower our customers to have their cake and eat it too when it comes to taking advantage of all the benefits of cloud infrastructure while automating compliance and remediation of common risks associated with operating in the cloud at scale. Any enterprise scaling its use of public and hybrid cloud can achieve the same success by deploying DivvyCloud to reduce cost, improve security and ensure compliance. I am excited to help accelerate growth for DivvyCloud and unlock value for our customers.”
Hertz brings 20 years of strategic business, sales and marketing experience in enterprise software, cloud technologies, and IT services. Prior to joining DivvyCloud, Hertz was founder and president of New Signature, the IT consulting firm that helped hundreds of customers migrate to the cloud. Under Hertz’s leadership, New Signature achieved 12 years of consecutive double-digit revenue growth and was named Microsoft's United States Partner of the Year in 2014 and 2015. Hertz exited the company after selling to BSI Partners, LLC as part $35M Series A investment from Columbia Capital. Hertz holds a Master of Business Administration from the MIT Sloan School of Management and a Bachelor of Science with a double major in Information Management and Technology and Anthropology from Syracuse University.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Chris aboard during this exciting period of growth,” said Brian Johnson, DivvyCloud CEO. “He is a visionary, results-oriented, leader with deep experience helping customers adopt cloud and accelerate the maturity of their cloud operations.
