The three new appointments are Rohini Kasturi, executive vice president and chief product officer; Tim Brown, CISO; and Andrea Webb, senior vice president and chief customer officer.

Sudhakar Ramakrishna is SolarWinds’ president and CEO.

Here’s our list of channel people on the move in April.

“These three executive functions are strategic in supporting the mission I stated upon joining the company in January 2021 — to continue to build on the earned trust of our customers by delivering powerful, affordable and secure solutions,” he said. “The appointment of these new executive roles marks a key moment in our company’s evolution, signaling our commitment to invest in the next phase of SolarWinds transformation and growth to better serve the expanding needs of our customers as they accelerate their digital transformation efforts in a hybrid IT world.”

Kasturi comes to SolarWinds from Pulse Secure. As that company’s chief product officer, he transformed its on-premises product portfolio to SaaS.

At SolarWinds, he will define the company’s product strategy, and help with product management, positioning and engineering. He’ll also lead the development, launch and integration of new and enhanced SolarWinds products.

Brown joined SolarWinds in 2017 as vice president of security. His responsibilities spanned internal IT security, product security and security strategy. His role is expanding to CISO.

Webb joined SolarWinds in 2002. Since then, she’s built a team contributing to the renewals, customer service, sales engineering and customer success areas of the business. Her team will be responsible for the company’s post-sale customer experience.

The massive SolarWinds hack has heavily impacted the federal government and cybersecurity industry. The federal government blames Russian hackers, which led to new sanctions against the country last month.
