I’m excited to lead the company as we take this phenomenal platform and expand its core product capabilities to deliver a wider portfolio of solutions to the market.”
Prior to joining Numara, Hansen held several general manager and senior vice president positions at CA Technologies. Most recently, he was responsible for managing the creation and development of a portfolio of cloud products and enterprise solutions that helped large enterprises seamlessly manage the business of IT across distributed, virtualized and cloud-connected environments. Hansen previously led the Security Business Unit and also served as CA’s chief information officer, where he developed a reputation as the company’s best and toughest customer. As CIO he was tasked with implementing the company’s global IT strategy, applications development and IT compliance as well as managing the global CA infrastructure.
