Serena enters a new era today with the promotion of several executives.
Good news like this is often triggered by bittersweet news. In this case, longtime R&D head Carl Theobald’s departure from the company set the ball in motion. Carl is leaving to stretch his experience beyond R&D. He’s a rare and special talent and a first rate executive, so we’re expecting great things from him in the wide open future.
Serena R&D is now organized into two business units.
- Our market leading ALM and mainframe business unit is led by Steve Brodie, one of Carl’s excellent hires into Serena. Steve’s deep experience includes product leadership at fellow ALM pioneer Rational Software.
- Expansion of our backbone SBM product is now being led by Kamran Kheirolomoom. A proven executive from the BPM and app prototyping world, Kamran reunites in this role with his longtime technology partner Ali Kheirolomoom, who leads SBM platform and solution development.
Bench strength is one of Serena’s assets, as this R&D evolution proves. Stay tuned for news about their contributions.
Please also plan on joining us at xChange 2011 in September to meet and hear from Steve, Kamran and Ali directly.
