Diamanti has appointed tech veteran Chris Hickey as chief executive officer, effective immediately. He joins from Quark Software, where he has served as CEO since January 2019.
Hickey will tap into his extensive experience growing companies and driving sales to spearhead Diamanti’s go-to-market strategy.
Before his time at Quark, Hickey spent two years as CEO at the cloud-based data services firm RingLead, where he helped increase the company’s valuation by 5x. Before that, he spent three years at Teq, where he rose to president and helped grow the company’s revenue by 45%.
He spent 13 years at CA Technologies earlier in his career, rising to senior vice president and general manager for storage and security. Hickey has a BS in Technology with a concentration in Marketing from Central Connecticut State University.
“As Kubernetes adoption accelerates, more and more businesses find themselves in need of solutions to manage their applications and data at scale. The innovation Diamanti continues to showcase made it an easy decision to join. I’m ready to help our customers modernize their infrastructure, so they are prepared for whatever the constantly changing business landscape throws at them next,” quipped Hickey.
