Leadership team

Leading, the open source way

Red Hat® leaders apply open source principles—like open exchange, transparency, and meritocracy—to their management styles. It helped us become the first billion-dollar open source company, and it's how we continue to thrive.

Meet the team

If you really want innovation to happen, you almost have to think about it as an ecosystem. A lot of companies think that the way to be more innovative is to put a group of creative people together. But your most creative ideas are going to come from people on the front lines who see a different way of doing the jobs they do every day. You have to create vehicles for those ideas to be heard.
