HashiCorp  — a leader in multi-cloud infrastructure automation software — announced it has appointed Brandon Sweeney as its first Chief Revenue Officer (CRO).

“As demand for the HashiCorp suite of products increases, I am delighted to have Brandon join us as CRO, to help take us to a new stage of growth and of scaling our field operations around the world,” said HashiCorp CEO David McJannet. “Brandon brings to HashiCorp a unique breadth of experience in building and leading field operations — exactly what’s needed for a fast-growing technology company that’s leading a generational shift in the infrastructure market.”

Before joining HashiCorp, Sweeney spent 16 years at VMware where he held various senior leadership roles across its sales organization, helping grow VMware into a multi-billion-dollar globally recognized brand with a product footprint in the IT departments of nearly every major organization worldwide. And most recently, Sweeney was SVP of worldwide cloud sales where he was responsible for field operations and customer success for VMware Cloud offerings, including VMware Cloud on AWS as well as the Azure, Google Cloud, and IBM joint cloud offerings, and the ecosystem of more than 4,000 cloud providers and MSP partners.

“There are very few technology companies that surpass the growth milestones or have the kind of global impact that HashiCorp has achieved, and that do so in such a short period of time,” added Sweeney. “As the Global 2000 enterprises and SMBs leverage HashiCorp’s solutions to help them simplify and realize the full benefits of their multi-cloud IT infrastructure, I am excited to help scale the company and field organization. I believe HashiCorp can help our customers unlock a common cloud operating model — a challenge every organization is facing today.”

Due to the global impact and demand for its suite of multi-cloud infrastructure automation products, HashiCorp saw over 100% year-over-year revenue growth during its fiscal year 2020, which ended on January 31, 2020. And over the past year, HashiCorp’s footprint across enterprise customers grew significantly — which now includes over 200 of the Global 2000 and 100 of the Fortune 500 as customers.
