Continuous testing platform provider Tricentis snaps up former SolarWinds boss as new CEO

Tricentis has appointed former SolarWinds chief Kevin Thompson as its new chief executive, with Sandeep Johri [pictured] remaining involved as a director on the Board.

According to an announcement from the continuous testing automation software provider, Thompson served as SolarWinds’ president and chief executive from 2010-2020 and before that as chief financial officer and chief operating officer from 2006-2010.

Thompson helmed growth at the infrastructure provider to $1bn in annual revenues.

Wolfgang Platz, founder and chief strategy officer at Tricentis, said Thompson would help accelerate Tricentis’ trajectory, picking up from Johri’s eight years of “unprecedented growth and success”.

” Kevin is a proven leader and has significant experience leading and scaling world-class, global technology organisations,” Platz said.

“We would also like to thank Sandeep Johri for his dedication to Tricentis. Under his leadership, Tricentis has grown 35 times and scaled into a global industry leader.”

Before joining SolarWinds, Thompson was senior vice president and chief financial officer of analytics company SAS and an executive vice president and chief financial officer at Red Hat.

Jennifer Fletcher, education manager for Tricentis, has blogged that test automation, while something of an investment, can help companies test faster and innovate with more precision.

“Reaping the rewards of test automation requires familiarity with some core test automation principles, as well as a tool or framework that helps you put those principles into practice. But this doesn’t have to be a long, painful process,” Fletcher said.

“Many testers are pleasantly surprised by the ease of applying approaches like model-based test automation and AI-driven test automation with Tricentis Tosca.”
