New chief product officer augments networking expertise at LiveAction

Network intelligence software vendor LiveAction announced a new chief product officer in December with years of leading network engineering and product teams at the likes of SolarWinds, Aruba and AirWave Wireless.

Francine Geist, chief executive officer at LiveAction, said the new chief product officer, Paul Gray, has an “outstanding” track record in the networking industry.

“There’s no doubt Paul [Gray] will be an asset to LiveAction as we continue to help our customers overcome complex networking challenges,” Geist said in the announcement.

Paul Gray, chief product officer at LiveAction, said he looked forward to helping a range of partners and customers take advantage of network performance monitoring to improve network visibility and speed up problem remediation.

Gray has been in harness as an IT executive for more than 20 years, according to the vendor, working with various start-up ventures in addition.

“In his previous roles he was an agent of change helping companies transition to SaaS,” the announcement explained, noting Gray’s “entrepreneurial spirit”.

“Most recently at SolarWinds he delivered their new Observability platform and prior to that delivered Aruba’s first cloud network services.”

As chief product officer, Gray will lead the LiveAction product and engineering strategy, as well as global execution of that strategy, the vendor said.

LiveAction aims to deliver full visibility of network and application performance via a single ‘pane of glass’ view, via unifying and simplifying collection, correlation and presentation of network and application data for business decisions and cost reduction across larger, more complex networks.

The company seeks to expand globally via distribution channels, targeting managed services providers (MSPs) especially with more “MSP-friendly” products.
