Intermedia Names Former Dropbox Exec Chief Financial Officer
Cloud business application provider Intermedia named Bob Tirva chief financial officer, succeeding Scott Allen in the executive role. Tirva joins Intermedia from Dropbox, where he served as Corporate Controller.
At Dropbox, Tirva was responsible for developing its accounting organization, including the improvement of controls, increasing oversight of business operations, and optimizing its global financial systems, according to an announcement by Intermedia last week.
Prior to Dropbox, Tirva spent 14 years at Broadcom Corporation, working in various finance roles at the company. Previously, Tirva worked at IBM, Navistar Financial Corporation and Ernst & Young.
“We are extremely excited to welcome Bob to the Intermedia executive team,” Intermedia CEO Mike Gold said. “Bob brings an ideal combination of skillsets from public and pre-IPO growth companies to support our next chapter of growth. Over the past five years, we have grown dramatically, having more than tripled our revenues, operating profits, users and product offerings. We are grateful to departing CFO, Scott Allen, for all that he’s done in his time with the company, and look forward to continued success under Bob’s financial leadership.”
“Intermedia is a long-standing cloud leader,” Tirva said. “Building on its success as the largest independent provider of Microsoft® Exchange in the cloud, Intermedia has diversified its offerings with proprietary services like SecuriSync® backup and file sharing and Cloud PBX, various security products, archiving, mobility, and third-party services such as Office 365™ productivity applications. Intermedia is uniquely positioned in multiple fast-growing cloud IT markets with a broad-reaching network of over 6,000 partners, and I’m delighted to be a part of the exciting road ahead.”
