Virtana appoints vice president of people

Virtana, a provider of AI-driven solutions for hybrid cloud management and monitoring, has appointed Kimberly Perryman as its new vice president of people.

Perryman, who joins with 15 years of experience leading people functions at technology firms, will promote and strengthen the business’ commitment to people development and focus on creating a culture that puts employees and customers first, Virtana said.

She brings to the organisation a track record of fostering strong organisational growth, while honouring a commitment to excellence and support among employees, customers and communities.

She also has broad experience across all aspects of human resources, ranging from hiring top talent through to assisting in all areas of change management, mergers and acquisitions, compensation and performance management, training, leadership development, employee engagement and overall corporate culture development.

Perryman previously served as director of people operations at Nextlink, where she helped scale the organisation from 150 employees in one state to nearly 900 across multiple states and more than 35 offices. She also worked as business development manager at Xtreme Consulting Group and director of human resources and talent at PrintPlace.

“Virtana is on a powerful growth trajectory and I am excited about its mission to simplify enterprise cloud complexity to drive human progress,” Perryman said. “I am also inspired by its passion for people development, diversity, hiring top talent and being a 100% remote-first company. It excites me to bring my experience to help support the business’ vision and rapid growth.”
