Monish Sharma Joins ElasticBox

The appointment of Sharma follows the announcement of ElasticBox's latest funding round, which closed at $9M in April

ElasticBox on Wednesday announced the addition of Monish Sharma as the VP of Customer Success. Monish brings over 17 years of experience on the frontlines of DevOps to the ElasticBox team as the company scales to meet the growing demand for their service.

"We created ElasticBox to help mend the frayed relationship between developers and IT teams, and by doing so, push a company's bottom line forward," said Ravi Srivatsav, CEO and cofounder of ElasticBox. "Monish has a deep understanding of how vendors can best serve their clients, having spent years running dev teams responsible for essential core infrastructure operations, while also managing vendor relations. Along with his serious DevOps chops, he is the perfect fit to make all of our customers wildly successful, and overall delighted with our product."

Monish Sharma comes to ElasticBox from Salesforce, where he was the Senior Director of Infrastructure Engineering - leading senior data and storage engineering teams across the globe in designing, building and operating core infrastructure and systems life cycles. Before Salesforce, Sharma held senior leadership positions at companies like Yahoo!, Nexant, Innotas, Shutterfly and Microsoft Hotmail. He brings extensive SaaS and PaaS service delivery experience, especially as it relates to architecting, scaling B2C and B2B enterprise software, along with general startup and IPO experience.

"I am excited to commit to a mission that enables a much needed cultural shift for developers and IT operations; one that aligns them to business needs for greater flexibility, transparency, agility and collaboration," said Sharma. "I have experienced the pain points first hand and feel passionately about ElasticBox's value proposition of empowering Developers and IT Ops to enable a DevOps culture, and I look forward to helping scale ElasticBox into a powerhouse."

The appointment of Sharma follows the announcement of ElasticBox's latest funding round, which closed at $9M in April.
