Zenoss Inc., the leader in intelligent application and service monitoring, today announced Matthew Bates as the company's new chief financial officer. As CFO, Bates will drive corporate strategy as the company surpasses key high-growth milestones. He will also lead Zenoss finance, legal and human resources from the company's headquarters in Austin, Texas.

Bates is a seasoned executive with extensive experience leading finance organizations and driving strategy in the complex IT operations management sector. He has unique expertise in building economic engines and revenue models for managed infrastructure and cloud.

"Matt has one-of-a-kind experience driving growth in the trifecta of cloud computing, software-as-a-service, and IT infrastructure spaces. He's an outstanding human being, and we have supreme confidence in his ability to help us navigate the growth period we're in."

Prior to Rackspace, Bates was an investment banker in North America and Asia for Deutsche Bank, concentrating on equity-based initial public offerings as well as mergers and acquisitions.

"Given the dynamics of where Zenoss is positioned in the market, this is an incredible opportunity for us to take things to the next level," Bates said. "With the Zenoss technology advantage and the team we have in place, the company is entering what I believe is the most exciting time in a company's life cycle. I am thrilled to be a part of it."
