Kim McMahon has joined the Cloud Foundry Foundation as the Senior Director of Digital Strategy. In this new role, she will collaborate with the open source community and their marketing teams to promote adoption and awareness of Cloud Foundry technologies.

It’s been a fantastic journey to get here. My technology marketing background is high performance computing, working with large organizations and start-ups — but I moved to the open source cloud native market a few years ago and have not looked back! What I love about it most is that it’s all about community. Working with developers, end users, operators, IT decision makers and the people who support them is a two-way conversation that should strive to educate, empower and excite. Transparency, inclusivity, openness and kindness are driving values of the open source world. These are the reasons I joined the Foundation. I look forward to getting to know the Cloud Foundry community, working with our members on collaborative digital strategy, and experiencing the momentum and growth of the Cloud Foundry ecosystem!

Cloud Foundry Foundation is a 501(c)(6) nonprofit, open source project. Their purpose is to make Cloud Foundry the leading application platform for cloud computing worldwide.

The Cloud Foundry Foundation exists to drive the global awareness and adoption of the Cloud Foundry open source project, to grow a vibrant community of contributors, and to create coherence in strategy and action across all member companies for the sake of the project. We will do this by marketing the economic and technical activity of the entire Cloud Foundry community; governing with fairness, energy, and optimism; and growing a massive ecosystem based on application and skills portability.

Kim McMahon is well known in the HPC community for her work as Diversity Chair for ISC2018 and ISC2019 as well as for her work on the planning committee for SC19. For many years, she was CEO of McMahon Consulting.
