Zerto, a leading provider of cloud and disaster solutions, today announced the appointment of Yahoo! CFO Ken Goldman to its board of directors. A standing CFO since the early 1980's, Ken brings more than 30 years of financial leadership to Zerto through numerous executive and board leadership roles at cutting-edge technology companies of all sizes.
Before joining Yahoo! in 2012, Ken served as CFO at Fortinet, Siebel Systems, Excite@Home, Sybase and Cypress Semiconductor. He has also served on the board of directors for numerous tech start-ups, including GoPro, Inc., NXP Semiconductors N.V., TriNet Group Inc., Yahoo Japan Corporation, and, just this month, joined Zuora's board as well. He is also a member of the Standing Advisory Group of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board.
"I find it professionally rewarding being involved with companies that successfully work toward achieving their public entity aspirations. As a Zerto board member, I'm excited to join a team of industry veterans who are working to change the economics and the way people not only look at the disaster recovery market, but how IT can truly give companies a competitive business advantage with greater choice and flexibility," said Goldman.
Ken remains focused on helping companies grow to be more than just an IPO success, but rather global enterprises built for longevity to withstand the hyper competitive IT market developments.
"Cloud computing and IT resiliency are two of the biggest macro IT industry trends today, and I appreciate Zerto's success in building a hyper-growth company based on innovative technology developed in Israel," said Goldman.
Ken's leadership will prove valuable to Zerto's evolving IT resilience and cloud strategies. With his appointment, the company looks forward to utilizing his experience and proficiency in business as well as leadership to help Zerto continue with its many achievements and developments.
"Scaling a dynamic company that doubles in revenues every year is an exciting challenge, and Ken's deep expertise in business growth strategy gives Zerto a tremendous asset as we take our company to the next level," said Zerto co-founder and CEO Ziv Kedem.
