Boomi has appointed former Deloitte CIO, Larry Quinlan, as an independent, non-executive member of its board of directors.
As the former global chief information officer for Deloitte, Quinlan held responsibility for the $45bn professional services firm’s technology strategy and operations, overseeing more than 10,000 IT professionals in 175 countries. He brings over 35 years of experience advising Fortune 500 boards and CEOS and currently sits on numerous boards including ServiceNow, Jones Lang LaSalle, and UBS Americas Holding LLC where he chairs the Technology and Cyber Forum of the board.
Quinlan’s appointment comes after Boomi’s recent independence backed by Francisco Partners and TPG, in a transaction valuing the SaaS vendor at $4bn.
David Meredith, CEO at Boomi, said: “We’re thrilled to have Larry as part of our board and strategic counsel, where he will bring proven expertise to help us navigate through our next phase as a company. Boomi’s recent launch as a standalone organization – coupled with our category-leading technology and rapid customer growth – provides us the opportunity to continue to build an unparalleled leadership team.”
Speaking of his appointment, Quinlan said: “All businesses must transform for today’s world, and intelligent connectivity and automation are crucial for success in that endeavor. Boomi’s continued leadership, coupled with its award-winning platform and culture, make this company a force to be reckoned with. I’m honored to serve the Boomi team during this exciting time.”
