Codefresh Taps Talent Behind Stackdriver, Google, and HP Success

Chris Pomeroy worked for Google and companies acquired by Oracle and Vista Equity Partners; Orli Remez has 20 years’ experience in all aspects of HR and leadership development

Mountain View, Calif., April 14, 2020 – To further the company’s skyrocketing growth as the leading developer of Kubernetes-native Continuous Integration/ Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) innovation, Codefresh announces the appointment of two new members of the executive team – Chris Pomeroy as Vice President of Sales and Orli Remez as Vice President of People & Culture.

Pomeroy specializes in building and scaling technical sales teams selling software engineering tools and platforms. Before joining Codefresh, where he’ll be managing a global sales team, he led the corporate inside sales team for Google Cloud. There, he built and scaled a team of 50+ reps and managers for the Western and Central US market, maintaining 100%+ YoY growth.

Google had acquired Stackdriver, an AWS infrastructure monitoring startup, in 2014 where Pomeroy led the global sales team and grew revenue by 1400% in 7 months. He was also one of the first sales hires at Acquia where he was promoted several times to the position of Regional Sales Manager, accelerating the company’s growth by exceeding revenue targets. Acquia was later acquired by Vista Equity Partners in 2019 for $1B.

“I have worked in software engineering and public cloud technologies for over a decade – all exciting, high-growth companies – with great results,” Pomeroy said. “Codefresh has incredible potential to be another home run. The company is one of those ‘ahead of their time’ innovators that is perfect for an aggressive sales team to help grow, and I can’t wait to get started.”

For Codefresh, Remez will be responsible for the company’s people strategy and employee experience. She came from BigPanda where she designed and implemented people strategy, programs and solutions for hiring, compensation, benefits, internal communications, talent management, and leadership development.

She has held senior level positions with global software companies, including Mercury Interactive, Hewlett Packard Software, BMC Software, and Castlight Health, for more than 20 years.

“My passion is creating workplaces where people can perform at their best,” Remez said. Referring to Codefresh’s distributed workforce across four continents, a key strength considering the broader global remote work situation, she added, “Codefresh offers a great environment and opportunities for developers, and I look forward to building on that work culture through talent acquisition and management, employee initiatives, and leadership development.”

Raziel Tabib, Codefresh CEO, added, “Chris and Orli both have impressive backgrounds helping to increase sales and revenue and building teams for software companies respectively. They also both understand the challenges software developers experience and recognize Codefresh’s unique capabilities as the answer. We look forward to their contributions to our executive team.”

Pomeroy and Remez will be based out of the Codefresh US headquarters in Mountain View, CA.

Codefresh’s CI/CD platform provides automation for building, testing and deploying modern applications using Kubernetes, serverless and more. Development teams often see 24x faster engineering cycles when using Codefresh.
