Doug Merritt Joins Splunk As Senior Vice President, Field Operations

Splunk Inc. (NASDAQ:SPLK), provider of the leading software platform for real-time Operational Intelligence, today announced that Doug Merritt has joined the Splunk executive team as senior vice president, field operations. In this role Merritt will have direct worldwide responsibility for Splunk direct sales, channel sales, business development, strategic partnerships, pre-sales, education, sales operations and consulting.

“We are pleased to have someone with Doug’s experience join the executive team at Splunk,” said Godfrey Sullivan, Chairman and CEO, Splunk. “His broad experience at large-scale technology companies, including with cloud-based SaaS business services, will be a valuable addition to our company.”

“I also want to take this opportunity to offer our profound thanks to Tom Schodorf, who has provided world-class leadership, built a best-in-class field organization and consistently delivered customer success. Following more than four years of impressive execution, including strong fiscal first quarter FY15 results, Tom has decided to retire and take a well-deserved break for the first time in his 30-year career. True to his commitment to customers and employees, Tom will remain at Splunk through the end of this fiscal year to ensure a smooth transition of responsibilities.”

Merritt was most recently senior vice president, product and solutions marketing at Cisco Systems, Inc. Previously, he was CEO of Baynote, a provider of a next generation ecommerce personalization platform. During his six years at SAP, Merritt rose to the position of executive vice president, global on demand applications, with responsibility for sales, consulting, business development and marketing functions globally for all SAP OnDemand and cloud-based applications.

“I am excited to be joining an organization that is so focused and passionate about the success of its customers. This focus has helped Splunk accomplish its transition from a single product to a multi-product company, including on-premises and cloud software, and the solutions it provides span so many attractive and growing markets,” said Merritt. “I am looking forward to leading Splunk’s world- class field organization as we together take Splunk to the next level.”
