StackPath Names Ashok Ganesan New Chief Product Officer

Another Industry Veteran Rounds Out Executive Team of the True Edge Computing Platform

Dallas, Texas, UNITED STATES

DALLAS , Sept. 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- StackPath, a leading edge-computing platform provider, has appointed Ashok Ganesan as chief product officer (CPO). Ganesan will be the strategic leader and visionary over StackPath’s products as the company further expands its globally-distributed edge platform.

“We have an amazing product team in place who has been on a roll and, to be honest, didn’t feel we needed a CPO until we met Ashok,” said Kip Turco, StackPath CEO. “Ashok brings so much experience in product management and development, not to mention engineering and networking, that we knew he could help us create and advance our edge computing offerings even faster.”

Ganesan brings more than 30 years building and leading strong product and engineering teams and managing billion-dollar product lines. This includes head of product for Snaproute (acquired by Infoblox Inc.), senior director of product management for Cisco Systems where he led the data center strategy and technical direction for their Nexus product lines, and, most recently, as VP responsible for the data center business at Juniper Networks. Juniper led a Series B round of equity financing for StackPath in March 2020 bringing the total amount of equity raised by StackPath to $396 million. 

“When Juniper began working with StackPath, I was awed by what they had achieved and their vision for taking edge computing even further – to the ‘deep edge’,” said Ganesan. “A lot of companies claim to be ‘edge’, but I am excited to be on the front line and part of a team actually provides a full array of cloud edge services and has even more in the works.”

Ganesan has a Master of Science in business analytics from NYU Sterns, an MBA from the University of Ottawa, and a Bachelor of Engineering in computer engineering from Delhi University. He will report to the CEO.
