Stacy Smith

Toshiba Memory appointed Stacy Smith, a former Intel executive, as its executive chairman.

Prior to joining the Tokyo-based company, Smith spent 30 years at Intel, where he was most recently president of Intel's Manufacturing Operations and Sales. He had also served as Intel's CFO and CIO. Media reports earlier this year had floated him as a candidate for Intel's next CEO.

"With Stacy’s wealth of international leadership experience and knowledge of the semiconductor space, there is no doubt he is the perfect person to help lead our company in the next phase of growth as an independent company," Yasuo Naruke, president and CEO of Toshiba Memory, said in a statement.


John Gray

PTC appointed John Gray, a former Oracle executive, as senior vice president of global solution provider sales, taking the channel helm from Kerry Grimes, who now has the expanded role of divisional vice president of PTC Partner Network and emerging geographies.

Gray, who started at the Needham, Mass.-based company on Oct. 22, was most recently senior vice president of alliances at Datadog, a Boston-based cloud monitoring provider. He held previous executive roles at Oracle, New Relic and BEA Systems. Gray was also recently a consultant for IPED, a division of The Channel Company, the parent company of CRN.

In an exclusive interview with CRN, Gray and Grimes discussed why Gray joined PTC and how his appointment comes during an inflection point for the 33-year-old company, which is making big bets on industrial IoT and augmented reality, transitioning to a subscription-based revenue model, seeking to expand internationally and planning a big headquarters move to Boston in 2019.


Kal De

Docker appointed Kal De, a former VMware executive, as CTO, filling a void left by founder Solomon Hykes, while the company made two other leadership appointments.

Before joining the San Francisco-based company, De was vice president of product development for VMware's Cloud Management Business Unit.

Docker also appointed Neil Charney as chief marketing officer and Melanie Morgan as general counsel. Charney and Morgan held positions as senior vice president of marketing for SAP's Cloud Business Networks Group and chief legal officer of SAP Concur, respectively.
