Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has announced that George Kurtz, CEO and co-founder of cloud cyber security vendor Crowdstrike, has joined HPE's board of directors.

Kurtz brings more than 25 years of experience in technology and as a business leader. According to HPE he is an internationally recognised security expert, author, entrepreneur, and speaker.

HPE expects him to bring stronger market insights to the board and the company.

 “HPE has proven its ability to transform with the shifting technology landscape, and equip enterprises to better capitalise on emerging technologies from edge to cloud,” said Kurtz. “I am excited to help HPE’s impressive leadership team build on the company’s strong track record and deliver on its vision for the future.”

Prior to founding CrowdStrike in 2011, Kurtz was at McAfee, serving in key roles ranging from executive vice president and general manager to worldwide chief technology officer. Prior to joining McAfee, Kurtz founded information security company Foundstone, which was acquired by McAfee in 2004.

“George brings invaluable technical acumen and insight across cloud, AI, big data and cyber security, all of which are top of mind for our customers today,” said Antonio Neri, president and CEO of HPE. “In addition, his deep entrepreneurial experience in identifying and commercialising emerging technologies will serve us well.”
