Puppet names new CEO

Orchestration and automation darling Puppet has replaced its founder and CEO Luke Kanies with former VMware APAC leader, EMC CIO and Microsoft man Sanjay Mirchandani.

Kanies will remain on the company's board, where Mirchandani will join him as a director.

The change of leadership is billed as a “the new guy has more business-building experience than the founder” thing and also a planned transition, as Mirchandani joined Puppet back in May 2016 as president and chief operating officer. ®
