Venture capital firm OpenView Venture Partners has hired enterprise software expert Dev Ittycheria as its third managing director.
Ittycheria, who previously served as a venture partner at Greylock Partners, will focus on identifying and investing in expansion-stage technology companies.
He has also worked as the president of BMC Software and as CEO and president of BladeLogic, which OpenView said was one of the fastest-growing enterprise software companies of the last decade.
BladeLogic went public in 2007 and was bought by BMC a year later.
Earlier this year, OpenView made two additions to its investment team by appoi9nting Mackey Craven as an associate and Blake Bartlett as a vice president.
OpenView founder and senior managing director Scott Maxwell said, “We are thrilled to welcome Dev to the OpenView team. His strong background in entrepreneurship, combined with his deep operational experience and his knowledge of cloud, SaaS, and enabling IT infrastructure, will make Dev a very valuable addition to the firm.”
OpenView’s recent deals include an investment in regulated content management and compliance software NextDocs.
