We interviewed many candidates for the position, but Phillip Merrick really stood out to me and the others on the search committee for many reasons. I think you need a Founder mentality in the CEO, whether they were there for the initial creation of the company or not. Phillip founded one of the most successful startups in enterprise infrastructure software in WebMethods and took it all the way to IPO. It was clear in our conversations that he and I could work together as a partnership to really change how things are done on the cloud and realize the huge opportunity we have.
I've never been more excited about the future for Fugue!
Founder & CTO
