Former DuPont CIO Ridout joins RF Code board of directors

June 7, 2016
Bob Ridout is currently an advisor with Salesforce.com and with Insight Venture Partners, in addition to his new RF Code board membership.

RF Code recently appointed Bob Ridout to its board of directors. Ridout formerly was vice president and chief information officer for DuPont; in that role he “led one of the industry’s largest-ever SAP programs, an initiative that included hundreds of global sites and business departments,” RF Code said when announcing the appointment.

Currently Ridout is an advisor with Salesforce.com, where he guides enterprise customers through successful integration of cloud-based applications into existing business operations. He also is a current member of Insight Venture Partners’ advisory board.

“We welcome Bob Ridout to RF Code’s board of directors with great enthusiasm,” said Ed Healy, chief executive officer of RF Code. “We believe Bob’s extensive experience within the technology industry, his technical knowledge and his strategic insight will be a valuable addition to our company.”

Previously, Bob Ridout served on the boards of directors of Christiana Care Health System, Cordys (which is now an Open Text company), and Gravitant (which is now an IBM company). He also previously held executive positions at DuPont in IT, field sales, manufacturing, and customer service. He has served on customer boards for Microsoft, HP, AT&T, Lotus and IBM.

Ridout commented, “RF Code has a particularly innovative approach to data center management and monitoring. Having the capability to continuously monitor sensitive environments and to track assets through their entire lifecycle is an invaluable tool for business, especially as the need to ensure operational continuity becomes increasingly critical. I’m looking forward to bringing a CIO’s perspective to the board in addition to insight from the customer’s viewpoint.”

RF Code offers CenterScape Cloud as part of its asset management and environmental monitoring solution. CenterScape Cloud provides organizations with real-time insight, control and predictability over operational risks, costs and compliance in the data center. The company explained that the solution’s benefits include accurate asset auditing, automated inventory management, optimized capacity planning and highly granular environmental monitoring.
