CloudBees Appoints Raj Sarkar as Chief Marketing Officer

Sarkar brings extensive cloud experience to CloudBees as the company launches a new cloud native DevSecOps platform

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIF. – November 7, 2023 – CloudBees, the leading software delivery platform for enterprises, today named Raj Sarkar as its chief marketing officer. Earning a spot in the Forbes "Top 50 Entrepreneurial CMO" list in 2022, Sarkar comes with a rich, 20-year background focused on cloud-based software and technology. He will lead the company’s global marketing strategy and execution, expanding growth and extending market awareness.

"Raj is an invaluable addition to the executive team as we embark on our cloud journey,” said Anuj Kapur, president and CEO, CloudBees. “His extensive background in marketing, product management and leadership within industry-leading software companies is perfect for CloudBees at this pivotal moment. As we launch our new DevSecOps platform, Raj’s talents and leadership will be key factors in our success.”

Before stepping into this role, Sarkar was an advisor to various startups, shaping their marketing strategies and go-to-market plans. Previously, he was CMO at 1Password, a 2023 Forbes Cloud 100 company, and CMO at Prisma Cloud, Palo Alto Networks' cloud security platform. Sarkar's experience also includes six years at Atlassian as the head of marketing, overseeing cloud products like Trello, Confluence, Bitbucket, and Jira Work Management. Earlier in his career, he played foundational roles in product marketing at both Google Cloud Platform and Amazon Web Services.

Embracing his new role with enthusiasm, Sarkar shared, "Being part of the CloudBees team is both an honor and an exciting challenge. The industry already recognizes CloudBees for its enterprise on-premise continuous integration and continuous delivery products. My goal as CMO is to broaden this recognition to cloud-based DevSecOps, making CloudBees the de-facto choice for developers and platform engineering teams."

Sarkar joins Kapur and Marc Gemassmer, who were appointed CEO and CRO, respectively, last year to lead the transformation of CloudBees into the next era of software delivery.
