SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Feb 10, 2023 – GitKraken, the leading provider of Git Tools, today announced the addition of two proven executives, Vikram Ghosh as Chief Growth Officer, and Jeremy Castile as Vice President of Product Marketing. This pair of additions comes on the heels of an outstanding 2022 for the company in which GitKraken exceeded goals for top-line growth and further increased its already-strong profitability.
As Chief Growth Officer, Ghosh will oversee revenue, customer, and partner ecosystem growth efforts. He is a veteran of Microsoft, where his team built the initial constructs around Azure’s partner-facing capabilities. Following Microsoft, he spent four years at DevOps category leader, Chef, leading Business Development through their hyper-growth years and to a successful exit. He most recently served as SVP of Strategic Alliances at Secure Code Warrior.
“Vikram’s experience scaling product-led growth aligns perfectly with where GitKraken is today, and his track record of building strong partnerships with other developer tool leaders will help fuel our future growth,” said CEO Matt Johnston. ”He brings elite problem-solving to the company that will positively impact all our customers and partners. We couldn’t be more excited to have Vikram joining GitKraken.”
Castile takes over a Product Marketing department responsible for embedding and delivering value for the company’s three products, GitKraken Client, Git Integration for Jira, and GitLens. Most recently, Jeremy led Product and Alliance Marketing at Docker and prior to that he worked as a Principal Product Marketer at New Relic.
“Product Marketing is the primary point of interaction when it comes to better understanding the millions of developers who rely on Git and GitKraken products every day,” said Johnston. “Jeremy’s technical acumen and experience with this fast-changing audience will help advance this strategic part of our business and ensure that GitKraken continues to put developers first.”
