Papaioannou will report directly to Splunk chairman and CEO Godfrey Sullivan. In his role as CTO, Papaioannou will help define Splunk’s technology vision, strategy and roadmap.

Papaioannou joins Splunk from Data Collective Venture Capital (DCVC), a venture capital firm where he was an entrepreneur-in-residence. Prior to DCVC, he was co-founder and CEO of Continuuity, an early stage big data startup. Papaioannou also worked at Yahoo! serving as vice president, chief cloud architect and distinguished fellow responsible for driving the technical and strategic direction of the Yahoo! Cloud and Hadoop teams. He was instrumental in the spinoff of HortonWorks from Yahoo! and still serves on HortonWorks’ board of advisors. Prior to Yahoo!, Papaioannou spent five years at Teradata, holding positions including CTO of client software and vice president, architecture and emerging technologies. Prior to Teradata, he was chief architect and director of engineering at Greenplum, Inc. He holds a Ph.D. in artificial intelligence and distributed systems from Loughborough University in the U.K.

“It is very hard to hand over the technology reins of a company you started, and frankly, I would not be able to give up those reins to just anyone,” said Swan. “I have known Todd for years and have tremendous respect for him as a leader. I can think of no one better suited to help drive the next phase of innovation at Splunk. Todd has a unique background and depth across enterprise software, cloud, open source, big data, search, developer, big company, startup and much more. He is a great communicator and visionary. Splunk is fortunate to have him join our family.”
