Boomi appoints Larry Quinlan to its board of directors
Boomi, the intelligent connectivity and automation leader, has appointed former Deloitte CIO Larry Quinlan as an independent, non-executive member of its board of directors.
“We’re thrilled to have Larry as part of our board and strategic counsel, where he will bring his proven expertise to help us navigate through our next phase as a company. Boomi's recent launch as a standalone organisation – coupled with our category-leading technology and rapid customer growth – provides us the opportunity to continue to build an unparalleled leadership team,” said David Meredith, CEO at Boomi.
As the former global chief information officer (CIO) for Deloitte, Quinlan held responsibility for the $45B professional services firm’s technology strategy and operations, overseeing more than 10,000 information technology (IT) professionals in 175 countries.
Sought-after for his understanding of strategic impacts of emerging technologies, he brings over 35 years of experience advising Fortune 500 boards and CEOs.
Quinlan currently sits on numerous boards, including those of two public companies: ServiceNow, a leader in cloud digital workflow, and Jones Lang LaSalle, a world leader in real estate services, as well as UBS Americas Holding LLC where he chairs the technology and cyber forum of the board.
“All businesses must transform for today’s world, and intelligent connectivity and automation are crucial for success in that endeavour. Boomi’s continued leadership, coupled with its award-winning platform and culture, make this company a force to be reckoned with. I’m honoured to serve the Boomi team during this exciting time,” said Quinlan.
Quinlan’s appointment comes after Boomi's recent independence backed by premier private equity firms, Francisco Partners and TPG, in a $4 billion transaction.
As a category-leading, global software as a service (SaaS) company with the largest customer base among integration platform vendors, Boomi touts a growing user community of over 100,000 members, and one of the largest arrays of global systems integrators (GSIs) in the integration platform as a service (iPaaS) space.
The company boasts a worldwide network of approximately 800 partners, including Accenture, Deloitte, SAP, and Snowflake; and partners with the largest hyperscaler cloud service providers, including Amazon Web Services, Google, and Microsoft, among others.
