San Jose, USA: Nutanix has elevated Rukmini Sivaraman to the role of Chief Financial Officer (CFO), effective May 1, 2022, replacing Duston Williams. Sivaraman has been with Nutanix since 2017 and currently serves as SVP of Financial Planning and Analysis.
Rukmini Sivaraman will succeed Duston Williams, who has decided to move out of Nutanix. Williams will remain with Nutanix through April 30, 2022, and work closely with Sivaraman to facilitate a seamless transition.
Sivaraman has held several roles instrumental to Nutanix’s growth and transformation, including Chief People Officer, and before that SVP of People and Business Operations, focusing on revenue growth, capital allocation, and all aspects of human resources.
She has an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University and an MS in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.
“Rukmini has a unique understanding of our company and industry, along with proven financial acumen, and I am confident she will thrive in the CFO role,” said Rajiv Ramaswami, President and CEO of Nutanix.
“Rukmini’s appointment also reflects the deep bench of talent we have cultivated at Nutanix. Supported by our talented finance team, we look forward to benefitting from Rukmini’s expertise and insights as we continue to build on our strong financial position and create value for our shareholders,” added Ramaswami.
“We are incredibly grateful to Duston for the many contributions he has made to Nutanix during his time as CFO,” added Ramaswami.
Outgoing CFO Duston has been with Nutanix since 2014 and played an instrumental role in the company’s success including the IPO in 2016, the planning and execution of the subscription business model and more.
“I especially appreciated his support and partnership during my transition to Nutanix in December 2020. His hard work and leadership have earned him this exciting new opportunity and we look forward to cheering him on in the future,” commented Ramaswami.
“I am honoured and excited to take on the CFO role during this important time at Nutanix and look forward to continuing to work closely with Rajiv and the leadership team as we execute on our financial objectives, enhance shareholder value and position the company for long-term success,” said Rukmini Sivaraman.
“I also look forward to continued engagement with our investor and analyst community. I thank Duston for his mentorship and support, which have positioned me and the rest of the finance and accounting team to take the reins and continue driving our initiatives forward,” she added.
