Puppet appoints Sanjay Mirchandani as CEO

Puppet announced the appointment of Sanjay Mirchandani as chief executive officer and a member of the board of directors, replacing founder Luke Kanies, who will remain a strong advocate for the company as a member of the board.

Mirchandani joined Puppet in May as the company’s first-ever president and chief operating officer. He previously served as corporate senior vice president and general manager at VMware for Asia Pacific and Japan. Before this, Mirchandani held several management positions at EMC, including CIO of the company’s IT organization. He also led the company’s Global Centers of Excellence, emerging markets and international development initiatives. Prior to EMC, Mirchandani held several field-based senior management roles at Microsoft over an 11 year period.

“Puppet is a truly revolutionary company. In a short time, Puppet has grown to become the market-standard platform for IT automation – helping customers deliver and operate their software no matter where it runs,” said Sanjay. “I have enormous respect for Luke. He built a company that has transformed the industry. I am honored to continue what he started and lead the business as we embark on an exciting new period of growth. I look forward to working with our talented team, customers, partners, and community to scale the use of Puppet worldwide through product innovation, go-to-market execution, and operational excellence.”
