Nutanix hires Cisco veteran Jennifer Massaro as global PR head
SAN JOSE, CA: Jennifer Massaro has joined Nutanix as global PR head after exiting Cisco last month.
Based in San Jose, California, Massaro is reporting to Tonya Chin, VP of IR and corporate communications, the company said in a statement.
The San Jose-based cloud computing company was founded in 2009. It beat expectations in its fiscal fourth-quarter earnings with revenue of $226.1 million, a 62% year-over-year increase, and a net loss of $50.6 million, according to ZDNet.
At Cisco, Massaro led PR for strategic alliances and innovations as corporate PR manager. Prior to taking a two-year sabbatical from 2013 to 2015, she had a stint of almost six years in strategic comms at Cisco. Massaro has also worked at Philips Electronics and Software Publishing Corporation, according to her LinkedIn account.
Cisco hired former VMWare communications leader Oliver Roll as SVP and chief communications officer last December.
