Tintri Names Thomas Barton Chief Executive Officer

Tintri, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise cloud platforms, today announced that its Board of Directors has named Tom Barton as Chief Executive Officer and as a member of its Board of Directors, effective immediately. Barton previously served as CEO of Rackable Systems, and held senior executive roles at Planet Labs, Canara and Red Hat.


"Tom is the ideal candidate to propel Tintri forward," said Pete Sonsini, General Partner at NEA and member of the Tintri Board of Directors. "Tom has a track record of growing companies with highly differentiated technology. At Tintri he will be able to draw on his deep data center experience to focus our go-to-market approach, cultivate key talent and align the organization around the markets where it leads."

"I am excited to join Tintri at such an important stage in its development. Tintri is widely recognized for its visionary technology-now the company needs to execute to expand its footprint with existing customers and land in new accounts," said Mr. Barton. "I look forward to working with the company to expand our reach."

Barton has served in numerous executive roles. He led Rackable Systems from an early stage company to a publicly traded company, reaching over $300 million in annual revenue. More recently he drove rapid growth in revenue at Planet Labs and oversaw all aspects of operations-including the launch of 150 satellites and a strategic partnership with Google for acquisition of its high resolution imaging satellites. Barton has also spent time at Lightspeed Venture Partners, Cygnus Solutions, Red Hat and McKinsey & Co.

Kieran Harty, CTO, co-founder and member of the Board of Directors added, "Tom's addition to the executive team comes at the right time for the company. We recently took important steps to strengthen our company, including the addition of $25 million in incremental funding and significant reductions to operating expenses. We've now got the right foundation and the right leader in place for the company's next phase."
