Imperva Welcomes Two New Board Members

Imperva, a provider of data security solutions for high-value business data in the data center, announced the addition of ServiceNow CEO Frank Slootman and industry veteran David Strohm to Imperva's board of directors.

"Frank and David bring valuable experience to our board of directors," said Shlomo Kramer, CEO of Imperva Inc. "Both have significant experience to help Imperva build and strengthen its position in the data security market. We welcome them in their new roles."

Currently, Slootman is the CEO of ServiceNow, a cloud-based IT infrastructure management company that was recently named by Inc. 500 as one of the fastest-growing companies in the world. Prior to ServiceNow, as the CEO of Data Domain, Slootman created a high-growth enterprise storage company that went public on NASDAQ in 2007.

"Frank helped build DataDomain into one of the most successful and innovative enterprise infrastructure companies, shepherding the company through its 2007 IPO as well as its acquisition by EMC for $2.4 billion in 2009," Kramer said. "His guidance and experience will prove invaluable to Imperva."

Previously, Slootman was senior vice president of product operations at Borland Software where he ran the company's engineering and product management function. Additionally, Slootman spent seven years at Compuware as general manager of UNIFACE in Amsterdam and general manager of the EcoSystems division in Campbell, Calif. Slootman holds undergraduate and graduate degrees from the Netherlands School of Economics, Erasmus University Rotterdam in his native Holland.

Dave Strohm has been an early or founding investor in more than 30 companies, including more than a dozen which have become publicly-traded, including Mentor Graphics, Ascend Communications, Legato, Forte Software, Doubleclick, Internet Security Systems and SuccessFactors. A number of other early investments have achieved successful mergers, including ccMail (Lotus/IBM); Kiva Software (Netscape/Sun); Octane Software (ePiphany); Decru (Network Appliance); and Wily (Computer Associates).

"For the past 31 years, Dave has been a savvy entrepreneur who has been involved in building numerous public companies," Kramer said. "Few people in the Valley enjoy this level of experience."

Strohm is actively involved with seven private companies (AtHoc, BountyJobs, Matrixx Software, OpenDNS, Progreso Financiero, Rich Relevance and Tabula). Strohm also has been a board member at EMC since 2003, lead director since 2006 and at VMWare since 2007. Strohm is a graduate of Dartmouth College and Harvard Business School.
