SAN FRANCISCO – JUNE 16, 2015 – AppDynamics, an application intelligence leader for the software-defined business, today announced the appointment to its board of David Scott, who was until recently senior vice president and general manager of the global HP storage business—responsible for the long-term growth and profitability of HP’s $4 billion storage technology business in the U.S.
Scott brings 32 years of experience in the enterprise IT infrastructure industry to the AppDynamics board, where he joins Jyoti Bansal, founder and CEO of AppDynamics, Asheem Chandna of Greylock Partners, Ravi Mhatre of Lightspeed Venture Partners, Dev Ittycheria, CEO of MongoDB, and Chuck Robel, former McAfee chairman of the board.
Scott was the president and CEO of 3PAR, Inc., a data storage company that created and defined the market for utility storage designed for service provider IT models. He was CEO of 3PAR for almost 10 years (2001 – 2010) as it evolved from a venture-backed private company, to a public company listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: PAR) in November 2007, and finally to its acquisition by HP in 2010. During Scott’s tenure, 3PAR expanded a high-profile and satisfied customer base in large- and medium-sized enterprises, government agencies, and service providers. At the same time, 3PAR expanded research and development operations into Northern Ireland and developed sales operations globally in the US, UK, Japan, Asia Pacific, Europe and South Africa.
Before he joined 3PAR, Scott proved himself during his 18 years at HP, where he held various executive positions in marketing and general management in the company’s data storage, computing and networking product areas both in the U.K. and the U.S. He is currently on the board of trustees for Castilleja School (May 2015 – present) and also served on the board of trustees for Bowman International Montessori School (2010 – 2013). Scott holds a BSc (Honors) in computer science and mathematics from the University of Bristol in the U.K. (1983), where he also received an honorary Doctorate of Engineering (2014).
