Wade Tyler Millward
The new leadership team of Citrix and Tibco’s parent organization—the Cloud Software Group, headed by CEO Tom Krause—is now set, with some longtime executives getting promoted and others off to find new roles.
With the Citrix-Tibco merger deal at last complete, the new leadership of the companies’ parent organization, Cloud Software Group (CSG) , has been announced, with some longtime Citrix and Tibco executives getting promoted and others off to find new roles.
A website for CSG reveals the new team led by CEO Tom Krause, himself a hire from Broadcom after the chipmaker announced its acquisition of VMware. Two Citrix executives and two Tibco executives were promoted to lead business units within CSG—Citrix, NetScaler, Tibco and “enterprise applications,” which include Tibco’s ibi and Jaspersoft.
Citrix and Tibco will remain separate business units within CSG with separate branding, according to the website.
Meanwhile, Krause has selected three C-level executives for CSG, two of whom were promoted from Tibco, one from Citrix.
Hector Lima, Citrix’s executive vice president and chief customer officer, now has the title of executive vice president of field and channel sales with CSG, according to the website.
CRN has learned that executives who are not with CSG or any of its subsidiaries include Scott Roza, Tibco president and global head of customer operations; Tim Minahan, Citrix’s executive vice president of business strategy and chief marketing officer; and Ricardo Johnson, Citrix’s CISO.
Here’s who’s new, who stayed and who is gone at CSG, Citrix and Tibco.
