PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - May 13, 2014) - TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) today announced it has appointed Jim Johnson, a seasoned financial executive, as chief financial officer of TIBCO. Mr. Johnson most recently served as chief financial officer of Jaspersoft, a company TIBCO acquired in April 2014. Mr. Johnson's appointment is effective immediately.
"Jim Johnson brings decades of finance experience in growing technology companies and we are confident that he will be a terrific addition to the TIBCO executive leadership team," said Vivek Ranadivé, founder and chief executive officer, TIBCO. "We have gotten to know Jim well, particularly during the Jaspersoft acquisition, and we are fortunate to have him in this role as we integrate Jaspersoft and further expand our subscription business."
