"We're very excited to welcome Geoff as the newest addition to our executive leadership team – particularly as we anticipate further expansion throughout 2021," said Instaclustr CEO Peter Lilley.

"Geoff's rich experience and proven success in growth-oriented organisations make him the perfect fit to guide Instaclustr as our new Group CFO."

He most recently served as interim CFO at Macquarie Telecom, and interim CEO and CFO at Ardent Leisure.

Richardson previously spent 13 years as CFO of SAI Global.

"Instaclustr is an exciting company at a particularly exciting moment in its story; I am looking forward to being part of the next phase of Instaclustr's journey," said Richardson.

"At the core of Instaclustr's global success and capacity to grow is the essential and market-differentiated value this company provides to its customer base. The power of pure open source technologies to continually meet enterprises' most critical data infrastructure needs will continue to swell, and Instaclustr is ready to fulfill that growing demand."
