Noviello replaces Gregg Hampton who led the Blue Coat financial, manufacturing and order administration organisations through the last three years, including the acquisition by Bain Capital.
Hampton will continue in a strategic role at Blue Coat as senior vice president, business operations, and will assist Noviello in the transition.
Noviello will report directly to Greg Clark, CEO of Blue Coat, and will be responsible for leading the company’s finance, information technology (IT), human resources, manufacturing, and supply chain teams.
Prior to joining NetApp, Noviello spent eight years at Honeywell International.
“We couldn’t be more excited to welcome Nick to the Blue Coat team,” said Clark.
“Nick’s financial leadership experience in large public companies will be invaluable to us. His experience across both technology and the traditional industries of our customers makes him an extraordinary fit for Blue Coat today and our aggressive plans for the future. I have no doubt that he is going to have a significant and immediate impact on the company, as well as serve the strategic long-term objectives of our investors.”
