Software testing provider also announces key leadership hires, two product launches, and new office location
(NEWARK, Calif. – Jan. 31, 2017) — Zephyr, the industry’s fastest growing provider of enterprise test management software, recently welcomed two hires to the senior leadership team. Ajay Koomar will step into the Head of India Operations role, while Robb Ellis is the new chief financial officer.
Koomar brings more than 20 years of leadership experience with various technology companies including companies listed with NASDAQ and SESDAQ. Ellis has spent over 20 years building and leading finance teams in global companies with significant complexity and operating scale.
“Adding Robb Ellis’ first-rate strategy accomplishments will enable Zephyr to readily respond to emerging business conditions with financial rigor,” said Scott Johnson, CEO of Zephyr. “As for Ajay Koomar, I can’t imagine anyone better suited to guide our continued growth in India.”
Ellis will be based in Zephyr’s new office in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, Zephyr’s fourth location in addition to Newark, California, London, and Bangalore.
In addition to its physical growth, Zephyr has also seen its customer base grow as more businesses recognize the need for effective software platforms. After passing the 10,000 customers threshold in October 2016, Zephyr has already signed contracts with over 100 organizations in 2017, including Fortune 500 companies such as Waste Management, IBM, American Express, and Eli Lilly and Company.
Zephyr continues to meet its customers’ needs with its continually evolving product lineup. Recently, Zephyr released ZAPI in the Cloud, which delivers requests on the JIRA platform to integrate automation and continuous integration tools. That announcement came on the heels of Zephyr Enterprise, which provides power, performance and scale for enterprise teams with hundreds to thousands of concurrent users.
Zephyr's test management products allow product and IT teams to manage all aspects of their testing lifecycle to release high quality software. DevOps support, integrations to any continuous integration tool and automation framework, tight integrations to Atlassian products such as JIRA and Confluence, and real-time metrics are a few of the many features offered to Zephyr customers.
