Senior Appointment Bolsters TIBCO's EMEA Presence
TIBCO Software Inc., a global leader in integration, analytics, and event processing, today announced the appointment of Steve Hurn as senior vice president of sales, EMEA. A seasoned industry figure with a passion for promoting the cloud to empower people and organizations to work better together, Hurn is particularly well placed to both progress TIBCO's EMEA business and help customers and partners appreciate and understand the need for cloud and TIBCO's Fast Data platform.
Prior to this appointment, Hurn was senior VP and general manager of cloud and line of business at SAP. Before that, he was CEO at Reevoo, and previously held executive positions at Oracle and Cramer Systems, where he was senior VP, global sales, before it was acquired by Amdocs in 2006. At TIBCO, one of his focuses will be cloud strategy, building on the momentum following the acquisition of API management leader Mashery, through which TIBCO is further expanding its SaaS-based integration capabilities.
"The speed of business and the ever-increasing flow of data from disparate sources has made cloud computing the go-to model for storing and accessing data," said Raj Verma, executive vice president, worldwide infrastructure sales, TIBCO. "In tandem with our Fast Data platform, the cloud makes for a strong proposition and natural area of focus and investment. Steve's appointment is central to this, and his calibre and experience is evidence of our broader commitment to this area of our operations. I am looking forward to his vision and what he will bring to TIBCO's broad range of innovative products and services."
Steve Hurn, senior VP of sales, EMEA, added, "I join TIBCO during one of the most transformative moments in the company's illustrious history. The recent acquisition of Mashery adds to TIBCO's pedigree as a global leader in integration, analytics, and event processing. Today, TIBCO is an even more attractive prospect for the thousands of loyal customers it already serves, as well as new ones who want to exploit the benefits of the cloud. In my role, I will ensure that our comprehensive solution set translates into tangible value for our customers, enabling them to realize the business benefits offered by TIBCO's Fast Data platform."
