LOS ALTOS, CA – August 12, 2015 — / — Box (NYSE:BOX) today announced that Jeetu Patel has joined Box as senior vice president of platform and chief strategy officer (CSO). He will report to Box co-founder and CEO, Aaron Levie, and lead Box’s platform organization, driving the strategy for Box’s platform business and developer relations. Box’s corporate development organization, which will continue to be led by Villi Iltchev, SVP of Corporate Development, will report to Patel.

Mr. Patel has more than 20 years of experience in enterprise information technology and was most recently with EMC, where he was General Manager and Chief Executive of the company’s Syncplicity business unit. He also previously held several leadership roles in EMC’s Information Intelligence Group, including Chief Marketing Officer, Chief Strategy Officer and Chief Technology Officer. Prior to EMC, Mr. Patel was president of Doculabs, a research and advisory firm focused on collaboration and content management across a range of industries, including financial services, insurance, energy, manufacturing, and life sciences.

“The Box platform is the next great growth driver for Box,” said Aaron Levie, co-founder and CEO of Box. “Jeetu’s deep industry and operating experience in enterprise content management and collaboration makes him an ideal leader as Box takes the next step to extend the scope of our platform business.”

“Box has revolutionized content management in the cloud. Its ability to balance end user demand for simple, easy-to-adopt experiences with enterprise-grade technology and security is unprecedented,” said Jeetu Patel, Box’s new SVP of Platform and Chief Strategy Officer. “The Box platform has an incredible opportunity to thrive as a business and help third-party developers and Box’s customers create unique digital experiences that can benefit hundreds of millions of people around the world.”

Today, the Box platform ecosystem has grown to nearly 50,000 developers and the platform serves more than 4.5 billion third party API calls per month. More than a thousand developers attended Box Dev – the company’s second annual developer conference – in April 2015 to learn about Box’s platform vision and roadmap.
