MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – July 17, 2014 – / – Tintri Inc., the leading producer of smart storage for virtualization and cloud environments, today announced the appointment of Andrew Lee as Executive Vice President, Alliances. In this role, Lee will lead strategic alliances and support business development and corporate strategy.

Lee joins Tintri at a time of extremely rapid growth and growing interest from customers, the channel and technology partners. The company recently announced that its customers have deployed 200,000 virtual machines on Tintri storage systems. The company has also experienced consecutive triple digit quarterly growth year over year and acquisitions of new accounts that are spending more than $1 million in single transactions on Tintri products and services.

“Andy joins Tintri at a time where the interest in the market working with us is at an all-time high,” said Ken Klein, Chairman and CEO of Tintri. “His experience is a perfect match for us at this stage in our development, and the relationships he will develop with technology partners will be of immense value to support our hyper growth.”

Lee’s prior experience spans both operating and investing roles. He was an investor at Battery Ventures, where he helped lead the firm’s efforts in Enterprise Software and Infrastructure from the Menlo Park office. Prior to that, Lee was with VMware, directing corporate development and leading strategic investment and acquisition initiatives. He also managed alliances with emerging ecosystem partners and drove licensing and OEM activities. Most recently, Lee led business development at CloudBees, a continuous delivery and PaaS company, and helped raise Series C financing for the company.

“I’ve been an admirer of Tintri from its inception. The company has already established itself as the only smart storage solution born of virtualization and for the cloud,” said Lee. “It’s the world-class team and customers’ passion for the products that brought me to Tintri. I look forward to helping drive our global expansion and continued success.”

Lee graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Economics from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
