BoldIQ Welcomes Paul Maritz to its Board of Directors
BoldIQ is at a key inflection point. Over the last year our business has grown, we have expanded into new markets, grown our employee base and provided services in the cloud, pioneering optimization as a service.
I can’t think of a better time to welcome Paul Maritz, technology visionary and former CEO of Pivotal and VMware to join BoldIQ’s Board of Directors!
Paul was an initial investor in BoldIQ and quickly realized the enormous potential and promise of our technology across a number of industries. Now in an official leadership position, Paul’s cloud and global service-based experience will be invaluable to our future success as we begin to expand globally with cloud-based solutions.
Paul brings more than 30 years of technology leadership experience to BoldIQ. Before leading Pivotal and VMware, Paul was President of the Cloud Infrastructure and Services Division at EMC after the company’s February 2008 acquisition of Pi, where he was the founder and CEO. Before founding Pi, Paul spent 14 years working at Microsoft, where he served as a member of the five-person Executive Committee that managed the overall company and was responsible for the product development and marketing of the Windows Client.
Paul is noted for his vast knowledge of cloud-based offerings and a vision. Bill Gates once said he had a “major impact not only on Microsoft but on the entire computer industry.” Paul’s guidance and expertise will help BoldIQ continue to disrupt how companies think about and act on their operations.
Welcome to the team, Paul!
