Cloudera, the hybrid data cloud company, has announced new executive leadership appointments as the company prepares for rapid growth in 2022. The company has appointed Abhas as Chief Strategy Officer, responsible for global corporate strategy, pricing, new product introduction, and other functions related to Cloudera’s growth and direction.

Abhas served as Chief of Staff and Vice President for Business Transformation at the company, since coming to Cloudera following the merger with Hortonworks. Prior, he helped scale Hortonworks’ go-to-market efforts as Global Head of Customer Innovation and Strategic Value Sales.

To further scale the company’s innovation and meet customer demand for cloud-native solutions, the company has also named Prat Moghe as EVP, GM of Cloud. In addition, Irma Laxamana has been named as Chief Legal Officer, responsible for worldwide legal affairs and compliance activities.

Last year, Cloudera completed an agreement to be acquired by affiliates of Clayton, Dubilier & Rice (“CD&R”) and KKR in an all cash transaction valued at approximately $5.3 billion.

As a private company, Cloudera is pursuing a long-term path to hybrid cloud leadership for analytics that span the complete data lifecycle from the Edge to AI, supporting businesses across all industries in the face of accelerated digital transformation.
