WAN optimisation specialist Riverbed Technology has appointed former Mitel executive Rich McBee as president and CEO.

McBee, who was also president and CEO at Mitel, has more than 30 years experience in leadership roles at a range of technology companies.

McBee departs Mitel after leading the company through a period of strategic transformation, including driving Mitel’s industry consolidation strategy, completing a dozen strategic transactions.

Prior to Mitel, McBee served as President of the Communications and Enterprise Group of Danaher Corporation, responsible for annual sales derived from carrier, enterprise, and SMB markets via both direct sales and channel partners.

McBee joined Danaher in 2007 when the company acquired Tektronix Communications.

“Rich is a strong leader and strategist, and has a solid track record of driving business execution and results. Riverbed has experienced strong performance recently and Rich is the right leader to continue our upward momentum, as well as bring the passion and dedication to operational excellence that he is well known for in the industry,” said David Murphy, Riverbed Chairman and Senior Operating Partner, Thoma Bravo.

“I look forward to working with Rich and the Riverbed executive team as we continue to deliver against our strategy and drive growth in two very unique and growing markets: Digital Networking and Digital Experience Management.”

“Riverbed has a well-respected brand, a history of innovation and a strong customer installed base that is well-earned,” said McBee.

“Riverbed’s current technology portfolio and strategy opens up significant market opportunities for our company, as organisations worldwide are looking to capitalise on their digital transformation investments and enhance the digital experience of their users.

“I’m looking forward to working with our experienced team to accelerate our execution and drive great outcomes for Riverbed, as well as for our partners and customers.”
