HashiCorp, the leader in multi-cloud infrastructure automation software, announced today it has appointed Todd Ford to its board of directors, sitting as the Audit Committee Chair. Ford brings to HashiCorp more than two decades of financial leadership experience at enterprise companies and venture capital firms including Coupa Software, MobileIron, Rackable, and Broken Arrow Capital. Throughout his career, he has led multiple companies from their earliest stages through scaling and hypergrowth.
"We're thrilled to welcome Todd to HashiCorp's board of directors," said Dave McJannet, chief executive officer of HashiCorp. "Todd brings a wealth of operational and financial experience that will be invaluable to us as we continue to aggressively scale the business."
In his current role as chief financial officer at Coupa Software, Ford was instrumental in leading the company through their IPO, while managing the company's 50 percent average compounded annual growth rate. Prior to Coupa, Ford served as the chief financial officer for MobileIron, a leader in security and management for mobile apps, and he led them through an IPO as well. Currently, Ford sits on the board of directors for 8x8 Inc.
"HashiCorp sits at the center of a transformational space with a massive market opportunity," said Ford. "The company has evolved its open source business and successfully established a strong financial model. I look forward to supporting HashiCorp as they continue to build and execute at such a pivotal time."
Ford is the second independent board member HashiCorp has added to its board of directors in the past year. Susan St. Ledger joined the board in November 2019.
