Docker Appoints Steve Singh CEO

May 03, 2017

The new CEO comes from a very strong SaaS background.

Docker has appointed Steve Singh as the new CEO of the company, after Ben Golub stepped down from the position. Singh will join Docker’s board of directors as Chairman. Singh is known for co-founding Concur Technologies, a SaaS company that was acquired by SAP for $8.3 billion.

Singh comes to Docker at a time when Docker’s container technology is enjoying phenomenal success, but Docker as a company is still trying to build a business model around open source technologies.

In an exclusive interview, Steve Singh told me that innovation will be one of the key areas for him to focus on as the new CEO of Docker.

In a press release, Singh said “I look forward to working with the entire Docker team as well as the broader Docker community to help usher in the new era of application computing. I believe that Docker, backed by its platform and fueled by innovation from its collaborative ecosystem, is on track to be the next great enterprise software company.”
