Nutanix (NASDAQ: NTNX), a leader in hybrid multicloud computing, announced today that it has added Mark Templeton to its board of directors, effective July 24, 2023.

“Mark’s previous tenure as a public company CEO combined with his strong domain knowledge of both cloud and datacenter infrastructure software makes him an excellent fit for Nutanix,” said Rajiv Ramaswami, President and CEO of Nutanix. “Nutanix will benefit from his broad understanding of industry dynamics and his deep and relevant board experience. I look forward to working with him closely as we make strong market inroads with our hybrid multicloud vision.”

Templeton was most recently CEO of DigitalOcean, and prior to that spent 20 years at Citrix Systems (a Nutanix Partner), including 14 years as President and CEO. He has served on the board of directors of multiple NYSE and NASDAQ companies. Templeton currently serves on the boards of Arista Networks and Health Catalyst, as well as several private company boards.
