By Len Rosenthal, Chief Marketing Officer

peter daytonEarlier this month, Virtual Instruments hired our new Chief Financial Officer, Peter Dayton. This was an extremely significant next step in our company’s evolution, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome Peter to the Virtual Instruments family.

A quick introduction to Peter: he has more than two decades of experience in prominent finance and business development roles with several high-profile technology companies. Previously, he was the CFO at Vasona Networks, a mobile-edge computing platform provider for global mobile network operators. He’s also held positions as a consulting CFO for several venture-funded startups through the Silicon Valley Finance Group, and held senior business operations and development roles at Yahoo! and IBM.

As part of his role at Virtual Instruments, Peter will lead Virtual Instruments’ finance, accounting, legal, IT and manufacturing departments, and report directly to Virtual Instruments’ CEO, Philippe Vincent.

Over the last 10 years, the CFO role has significantly changed; nowadays, CFOs are expected to offer value across the entire organization. As such, we realized it was time to bring in a CFO who could not only drive revenue but positively impact every aspect of the business – and with Peter overseeing teams across the company, that’s precisely the role he’s aiming to fulfill. Here’s what Peter had to say about joining the VI team:

“Virtual Instruments’ industry-leading solutions are integral in helping enterprises manage the increasingly complex hybrid data centers of today. I’m thrilled to be a part of an executive team that is not only fully committed to offering the best infrastructure performance monitoring and analytics solutions on the market, but also prioritizes customer and partner satisfaction above all else.”

Peter has an established track record of growing both public and private companies, and his extensive experience in financial management, business development and operations roles at Fortune 500 companies makes him the perfect fit for Virtual Instruments. We had an amazing 2017 and a great start to 2018, and we’re looking forward to our continued growth through Peter’s financial acumen and strategic leadership.
