Delphix welcomes DevOps leader David McJannet to its board of directors

Hashicorp CEO brings more than two decades of cloud, DevOps software experience to Delphix

Delphix, the pioneer in programmable data infrastructure, today announced the appointment of David McJannet, CEO of HashiCorp and former Executive in Residence at Greylock Partners, to its Board of Directors.

“David’s domain expertise with DevOps and multi-cloud infrastructure automation will be a key advantage for us as we continue to pioneer data automation,” said Delphix CEO Jedidiah Yueh. “Our programmable data infrastructure enables DevOps teams to keep up with emerging data privacy regulations and continuous delivery (CD) pipelines to accelerate digital transformation.”

McJannet has more than 20 years of experience spanning product management, operations, finance, and marketing with a focus on open source and infrastructure software. Prior to HashiCorp, he was an Executive in Residence at Greylock Partners. Before that, McJannet ran marketing at GitHub and Hortonworks. At Hortonworks, he built and led the marketing organisation that supported the company through multiple phases of growth, including reaching more than $100 million in annual revenue within four years of its inception, and a successful IPO in 2014. Prior to Hortonworks, McJannet led the marketing function for SpringSource at VMware, which included the Spring Framework, Cloud Foundry, and other key technologies that became the company now known as Pivotal Software.

“Data is the lifeblood of modern companies and plays a role in shaping the outcome of digital transformation initiatives. Delphix’s focuses on data governance and its ability to empower DevOps teams with fast, lightweight, and compliant data is a key differentiator. I’m pleased to join its board of directors, and to work with the Delphix leadership team as the company enters its next phase of growth,” said David McJannet.

Earlier this year, Delphix announced that its annual growth rate grew by over 85% for the fiscal year ending January 2021 compared to the prior year, pushing the company into non-GAAP profitability. The company also achieved a world-class Net Promoter Score (NPS) of 89 during the fiscal year ending January 2021. Delphix customers now include 24 of the Fortune 100 companies, 6 of the top 10 banks in North America, 5 of the top 10 telcos in the world, 60 insurance and health insurance providers, and 25 major retailers across the globe.
