Rubrik Names McCarthy CRO

Rubrik announced the appointment of Brian McCarthy as chief revenue officer.

McCarthy will be responsible for driving Rubrik’s global go-to-market strategy and further scaling the company in the enterprise. McCarthy is an accomplished executive with progressive sales and leadership experience building and leading talented teams to achieve hyper-growth scale. He replaces Brett Shirk who leaves Rubrik to pursue new opportunities.

McCarthy joins Rubrik from ThoughtSpot, where he led the sales, services, and customer success organizations as CRO. Prior to that, he held senior sales leadership roles with AppDynamics as GVP of sales, which was acquired by Cisco, and QlikTech, where he served as president of the Americas.

McCarthy’s hire comes on the heels of several marquee appointments at Rubrik in the last year. Dan Rogers was named the company’s first president, following his leadership as CMO at both ServiceNow and Symantec, and previous executive roles at Salesforce and AWS.

Kiran Choudary was named CFO, following his role leading Atlassian through their successful IPO. And co-founder and CTO of Rubrik, Arvind Nithrakashyap, who has been pivotal to the strategic direction of the company since its inception, was recently appointed to head Rubrik’s engineering team, leading future product innovation.
