Blue Prism, a global leader in intelligent automation, is pleased to announce the appointments of Maurizio Carli and Murray Rode as Non-Executive Directors, effective 1 February 2021. These appointments strengthen the Board's breadth and depth of global software industry experience and expertise, notably in the critically important US market. The two appointees also bring invaluable skills in operations, product development - including cloud computing - and in scaling technology businesses, which will be central to supporting our strategy.


Maurizio Carli is an international executive with an exceptional track record of driving sales growth in enterprise IT companies. Most recently Maurizio held a number of go-to-market leadership roles at VMWare, an $11bn+ revenue cloud computing and virtualization software and services company, progressing from direct responsibility for EMEA, then the US and finally leading worldwide sales and services. Prior to VMWare Maurizio held leadership roles at Google, Business Objects and IBM. Maurizio is currently Chairman of Board International, a decision-making software company, and is a Non-Executive Director at Temenos.


Murray Rode brings extensive experience in enterprise software at the executive and Board level, with particular knowledge in SaaS, analytics and data science, and software integration infrastructure. He held senior executive roles at TIBCO Software Inc, a $1bn+ revenue big data and software integration business, including CEO, CFO and COO. During his time at TIBCO Murray led the company through a major financial and operating transformation, revamping the core strategy and go to market approach, significantly increasing profitability and executing a series of acquisitions. Murray currently serves as Senior Advisor for Bow Capital Management in Menlo Park, CA.



Jason Kingdon, Blue Prism Chairman and CEO, said:


"I am thrilled with the significant global software experience we have added to the Group, which will be invaluable as we drive forward as a global software company. These appointments are a testament to the value and profile created to date by Blue Prism, and I am delighted that individuals of such caliber share the Board's and my vision for the future prospects of the Group.
