Not all those who wander are lost, but those operations with poor leadership face the struggle of finding the right direction. Appropriate strategy and planning puts an organization in control of its future, and shape a path to long term success.

RingCentral announced the addition of Godfrey Sullivan to its board of directors. The former chief executive officer and current chairman of the board of directors of Splunk, Inc, brings with him a wealth of industry expertise and experience.

“Godfrey brings an impressive background with deep experience working with highly disruptive enterprise software and cloud companies and scaling them for success,” said Vlad Shmunis, founder, chairman, and CEO, RingCentral. “I’m excited to welcome him to our board of directors as we continue to extend our leadership position in the cloud communications market. Godfrey’s guidance will be instrumental as we scale our business globally to meet the communications and collaboration needs of our enterprise customers.”

In addition to his new post at RingCentral and board of directors role for Splunk, Sullivan also serves on the CrowdStrike Inc. board of directors and in 2018 stepped down from the same role at Citrix Systems. The former CEO of Hyperion Solutions Corporation is a formidable addition to RingCentral’s leadership.

"RingCentral has proven its market leadership in an industry historically dominated by legacy hardware vendors through its innovation in cloud communications software,” said Sullivan. "I’m honored to join the company’s board of directors and to contribute to the next phase of RingCentral’s growth.”
