PALO ALTO, CA–(Marketwired – Oct 26, 2015) – TIBCO Software Inc. today announced it has appointed Tom Berquist as chief financial officer.
Berquist has built a strong track record in enterprise software that encompasses 10 years in executive leadership roles at private equity-backed companies, including CEO of Corel, CFO of Ingres, and most recently, CEO of Saba Software.
