SonarSource Appoints Kevin Thompson on its Board of Directors

May 2022 by Marc Jacob

SonarSource announced Kevin Thompson, chairman and CEO of Tricentis and former president and CEO of SolarWinds, has joined its board of directors. As a seasoned business and finance leader, Thompson brings more than two decades of C-suite experience, at some of the world’s leading enterprise software companies, to the SonarSource board. With experience leading both large public corporations and high-growth scaleups, he is uniquely suited to help SonarSource scale its growth, compete in new markets and capture larger market share.

Prior to Tricentis, Thompson served SolarWinds for a total of 15 years; as president and CEO from 2010 to 2020, and as CFO and COO from 2006 to 2010. Under his leadership, SolarWinds grew its revenue from $30 million to $1 billion and he led the company through a successful IPO in 2009, its transaction to go private in 2016 and its second IPO in 2018. In addition to his tenure at SolarWinds, Thompson has gained deep experience advising organizations in the tech community, and served as a board member of NetSuite for 10 years prior to its sale to Oracle for more than $10 billion in 2016. Prior to joining SolarWinds, Thompson was CFO of Red Hat, Inc. He also currently sits on the board of Blackline.

Thompson’s board appointment comes on the heels of SonarSource’s $412 million funding round led by new and existing investors, bringing the company’s valuation to $4.7 billion. SonarSource will use the investment to grow its go-to-market team globally as the company drives toward $1 billion in revenue.
