“With our proven technology, broad ecosystem partnerships, and multi-generational roadmap, we have an incredibly strong foundation and aggressive growth plans,” said Phil Murphy, CEO of Cornelis Networks. “Matt is a proven leader who brings the vision and expertise to drive our go-to-market engagements as we expand our global market share beyond traditional HPC to AI, cloud and hybrid environments.”
