Today, Red Hat is pleased to announce that Alessandro Perilli has joined Red Hat as General Manager of our newly formed Open Hybrid Cloud Program Office. Alessandro was most recently Research Director at Gartner, leading the private cloud research program in Gartner’s Technical Professionals division.

Over the course of his career, he has consulted with countless large end-user organizations and cloud technology providers about their cloud implementation and cloud product strategies, respectively.
