Steve Harris join CloudBees as SVP of Products September 27, 2011

Posted by Sacha in CloudBees, English, IT.

One of CloudBees’ top priorities for 2011 was to build a seasoned executive team. This led to Jim McLoughlin (from Appirio) joining as VP of Sales, André Pino (from Forrester) joining as VP of Marketing and John Vigeant (from Citrix) joining as VP of Business Development.

One of the critical hires we still had to execute on was to recruit a strong product leader. We were looking for somebody with a strong understanding of the middleware market, of Java and of what developers’ and enterprises’ aspirations are.

Today I am proud to announce that Steve Harris is joining the team as CloudBees’ SVP of Products. Steve was seen by many as “Mr. Java” at ORCL and a truly respected individual for his hard work, management style and leadership. Everybody I’ve talked to only had great things to say about Steve: engineers, peers, partners and competitors. Steve went through the Oracle AS era, the BEA acquisition and then the SUN acquisition, with both the Weblogic and Glassfish teams under his leadership.

Steve starts at a great time to ramp up at neutrinos speed: he will attend the Jenkins User Conference this coming Sunday, be present at the CloudBees booth at JavaOne next week and drive our Technical advisory Board (TAB) in Menlo Park next Tuesday.

Welcome Steve, onward,


P.S.: you can see a recent presentation from Steve here.
