Software delivery company CloudBees has appointed former Cisco and SAP executive Anuj Kapur as its new president and CEO

Bringing extensive enterprise tech experience in corporate strategy, product management, go-to-market strategy and alliances to CloudBees, Kapur will focus on accelerating product innovation, strengthening go-to-market processes, and furthering geographic expansion and scale.

Kapur previously served as president, corporate development and strategy at SAP, overseeing growth strategy and execution across the product and customer lifecycle.

Prior to this, he held various executive positions at Cisco — most previously chief strategy officer — leading product and go-to-market strategy, as well as startup investments and partnerships with AWS, Google and Apple.

Additionally, the tech leader currently serves as an advisor to the CEOs of several technology startups in the US and Israel, including Armorblox, Lightlytics and Prosimo.

“Enterprises know that the software they build and deliver will make or break their future,” said new Cloudbees president and CEO, Kapur.

“They also know that speed is table stakes and that quality, security, and compliance are the next frontier in creating exceptional customer experiences. CloudBees is at the centre of enabling some of the world’s largest and most influential brands to make software their most significant differentiator.

“The opportunity to join CloudBees to shape this next chapter of growth for our customers and employees is an absolute honour.”

CloudBees co-founder Sacha Labourey, who was serving as interim CEO, will remain as chief strategy officer and member of the board.

Since being established in 2010, CloudBees has raised $246m in venture capital, including $150m in a Series F funding round announced in December 2021.
