Cisco AppDynamics has announced a significant addition to its executive leadership team with the appointment of Eric Schou as Chief Marketing Officer (CMO).
The appointment comes after Cisco continues to use its full-stack observability in the technology market.
AppDynamics is an application performance management and IT operations analytics company based in San Francisco. The company focuses on managing the performance and availability of applications across cloud computing environments as well as inside the data center.
Cisco has acquired AppDynamics earlier.
Eric joins AppDynamics from Splunk where he was Head of Security Marketing, and is an accomplished marketing professional with over 20 years’ experience at some of the biggest enterprise technology companies in the world, including Palo Alto Networks, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise (HPE), Good Technology (now BlackBerry Ltd.), McAfee and Symantec.
“The opportunity to lead and define such an exciting emerging market sector is extremely rare. Needless to say I jumped at the opportunity to join AppDynamics and to be part of the next phase of its journey,” Eric said.
In his new role, Eric will assume responsibility for driving awareness and demand for AppDynamics’ industry-leading Business Observability platform amongst enterprise IT decision makers and channel patners. In addition, he will also help to accelerate the delivery of Cisco’s full-stack observability vision - of which AppDynamics is a critical component.
