ThousandEyes, a company that provides visibility into the Internet and digital experiences, announced the appointment of Godfrey Sullivan to its board of directors.

Sullivan was the former Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Splunk Inc., a company that produces software for searching, monitoring, and analyzing machine-generated big data, through a web-style interface.

“Godfrey has been at the forefront of building global, disruptive and hugely valuable enterprise software companies for more than three decades,” said Mohit Lad, ThousandEyes Co-founder, and CEO. “Godfrey’s expertise in building and scaling customer-centric organizations that tackle real industry problems with top-notch solutions will be invaluable as we continue to expand our product offerings and global presence to create value for today’s digital enterprises,” added Lad.

“Every company depends on the Internet to deliver products and services to their customers, and yet the Internet is outside of IT’s control,” said Sullivan. “By delivering the most comprehensive real-time map of the Internet that provides visibility into the availability, performance, security, and quality of their digital experiences, ThousandEyes is uniquely positioned to become a mission-critical
component of the enterprise IT stack.”
