Digital Experience Leader Adds New Head of Engineering, Chief Information Security Officer, and SVP of Product Marketing to Further Platform Innovation
BOSTON -- April 7, 2020 -- Digital experience company Acquia today announced the appointment of three longtime technology professionals to executive roles leading engineering, information security and product marketing. Former Continuum executive John Mandel comes to Acquia as the Head of Engineering; prior Pega (formerly PegaSystems) executive Robert Former assumes the role of Chief Information Security Officer (CISO); and former SAP executive Kevin Cochrane will serve as Senior Vice President of Product Marketing. The announcement comes on the heels of the company’s appointment of Chris Doggett as Chief Revenue Officer in February 2020.
