Easy as ABC: Atlassian, Bardman, CFO

By

Atlassian has appointed Erik Bardman as its chief financial officer.

"Erik's strong management skills and expertise in strategic development, and financial planning and analysis is a perfect fit for Atlassian as we expand into new markets," said co-founder and co-CEO Mike Cannon-Brookes.

"His private and public company experience will be a huge asset as we continue our growth trajectory as a private company but operate the business as public-market ready.

"That gives us the greatest flexibility to do what we've always done, which is to make decisions that are right for the long-term."

Co-founder and co-CEO Scott Farquhar pointed to Bardman's experience in high-growth, large-scale businesses: "We have our sights set on where Atlassian will be 10 years from now, not just next quarter or next year. Erik will play an important role in helping us get there."

Bardman has previously served as CFO at Roku, Logitech, and eBay. He spent the first 15 years of his career in various positions at General Electric, including a period as vice president of strategic pricing at GE Global Consumer Finance.

He is currently a director and chairman of the online real estate marketplace Audit Committee of Trulia.

"Atlassian is an amazing company with huge untapped opportunities and a 21st-century approach to the enterprise software business, which makes it the success it is today and will be going forward," said Bardman. "It's exciting to join a company that is so well-positioned for this next phase of growth."
