“Tom is the ideal candidate to propel Tintri forward,” said Pete

Directors. “Tom has a track record of growing companies with highly
differentiated technology. At Tintri he will be able to draw on his deep
data center experience to focus our go-to-market approach, cultivate key

acquisition of its high resolution imaging satellites. Barton has also
spent time at Lightspeed Venture Partners, Cygnus Solutions, Red Hat and
McKinsey & Co.

Kieran Harty, CTO, co-founder and member of the Board of Directors
