Earlier in the year I said that joining EMC would turbocharge Pivotal Labs’ business, and that is certainly proving to be the case. Today I am very pleased to announce the launch of Pivotal’s new product management practice, expanded design services, and the opening soon of two regional offices in Boston and Los Angeles, as well as our first office in Europe, to be based in London. To help guide the company during this growth stage we have appointed several executives to lead key business functions.
Our product management and design services can now help clients plan, define, prioritize, and design their entire product and strategic roadmap to promote greater efficiency throughout the entire development process. We can take great satisfaction in knowing we are helping our clients build quality products and deliver them to market faster through our focus on a creative culture and uniquely disciplined processes.
No doubt those of you who spend any appreciable time at Pivotal will have noticed a few new faces in the hallways. I am delighted to formally announce several executive appointments:
- Edward Hieatt, who has served as our Vice President of Engineering, has been promoted to Chief Operating Officer;
- Matt Eng has been appointed Chief Financial Officer;
- Drew McManus will lead the new design and product management practice as Vice President of Product;
- Melissa Dyrdahl has joined as Vice President of Marketing.
At the end of the day it’s all about delivering results faster while continuing to focus on improving the customer experience. Our clients have asked Pivotal for these new services, and we are proud to be able to deliver them.
