Loggly has formed a world-class advisory board consisting of cloud management executives from several top technology companies, to accelerate the log management leader's next growth phase. Loggly completed its 2012 fiscal year in December, having more than tripled its revenue, client and user base from the prior year, cementing its status as the world's most popular cloud-based log management service.
The advisory board, whose charter is to help Loggly shape its business and product directions in order to stake substantial claim to the multi-billion dollar cloud application management market, includes tech luminaries Srikumar Chari, Senior Director of Software at Apollo Group; Steve Ginsberg, Vice President of Technical Operations at Pandora; Misha Logvinov, SVP and Chief Customer Officer at Lithium Technologies; Lloyd Taylor, former Vice President of Operations at LinkedIn and Wade Warren, Vice President of Technical Operations at Wikia. Board of Advisor's chair, Coco Brown, was most recently President and COO of leading IT services company Taos.
The formation of the BOA follows strengthening of Loggly's leadership team. In March 2012 the company hired Charlie Oppenheimer as CEO and Jim Nisbet as CTO & Vice President of Engineering. Loggly, which helps cloud-centric businesses turn system log data into answers and action, has over 2,500 active customers, including AdRoll, AirBnB, EA, Heroku, Knewton and Sony Music.
"I am very excited to welcome a great group of advisors to the Loggly leadership team," said Oppenheimer. "Each person has been part of tremendous business and technology company growth, and played key roles in crafting and implementing strategies around next-generation applications and distributed technology environments. Their experience and insights will be crucial as we expand our cloud log management leadership position and help clients get more business value from their log data."
