Palo Alto, CA


11 May, 2015


TIBCO Software Inc. today announced it has appointed Vivek Rao to senior vice president, global professional services, and Thomas Been to chief marketing officer. Rao brings demonstrated leadership and results for large-scale professional services organizations. Been has been a key player in both sales and marketing over the last 10 years. Both appointments are effective immediately.

Vivek Rao brings to TIBCO an extensive record of growing and leading successful global services organizations. Most recently, Rao was responsible for Unisys Corporation's System Integration Services organization, with over 3,000 consultants across more than 50 countries. Prior to that, he ran global field operations for a $1.7B technology and services business unit at Unisys. In addition, Rao led and grew professional services businesses at BEA Systems and Oracle. Throughout his career, Rao has helped services organizations deliver complex deployments of mission-critical solutions to customers globally.

Thomas Been has been an instrumental leader in the marketing organization over the past several years. Throughout his 10+ years with TIBCO, he's held a range of roles, both technical and sales-oriented, creating relationships with a variety of major global accounts at TIBCO. In his most recent role as vice president, product marketing, Been led the evolution of the go-to-market strategy for core TIBCO products, including the development of the Integration Maturity Model, which helps companies understand the power and business value of integration. He also played a central role in a variety of corporate initiatives, including TIBCO's successful annual technology conference.

"Our ability to attract experienced executives like Vivek and to promote talent from within, as we have with Thomas, speaks volumes about TIBCO's current strengths and future prospects," said Murray Rode, chief executive officer, TIBCO. "While I am excited about our new appointments, I am also sorry to see Wen Miao and Lori Wright leave their leadership roles in services and marketing. I want to thank both of them for their significant contributions to TIBCO and wish them the best in their future endeavors."

The roles of Rao and Been will be fundamental in carrying out TIBCO's vision for its Fast Data platform, which allows a company to integrate, analyze, and act on Big Data in real time to transform its business into a fully digital enterprise.
