Panzura gets new CEO
Cloud storage gateway startup Panzura has a new CEO: Patrick Harr.
He is an ex-GM/VP at HPE, VP at VMware, and CEO at previous startups. Panzura's previous CEO, Randy Chou, is not mentioned in the announcement, and he no longer appears on Panzura's management page. The other co-founder, John Taylor is still listed as CTO.
Chou's LinkedIn profilei is titled "Time off."
Our belief is that Chou went because Panzura, with a niche AEC cloud gateway strategy, wasn't growing fast enough compared to competitors like Avere and Nasuni. Expect strategy changes to start surfacing. ®
