BlueCat appoints Scott Fulton as Chief Product and Technology Officer

An accomplished executive in software product management and engineering leadership, he will lead the next phase of product development and growth.

TORONTO, March 05, 2024 (Globe Newswire) — BlueCat Networks, a leading provider of secure and automated DNS, DHCP, and IP address management (collectively known as DDI) services and solutions for mission-critical networks, announced that Scott Fulton has joined the company as its new Chief Product and Technology Officer (CPTO).

Fulton brings more than 25 years of enterprise software product management and engineering leadership experience to the role. Recently, he was a founder and CEO of venture-backed cloud observability start-up OpsCruise. Under his leadership, OpsCruise developed patented artificial intelligence and machine learning technology, won Fortune 500 customers, and was recognized by Gartner as a Cool Vendor. The company was acquired in June 2023.

Prior to that, Fulton was an executive vice president at Infoblox. While in that role, he was responsible for products and corporate development during a transformational period that included the introduction of several security, cloud, and service provider offerings. Earlier in his career, Fulton held general management roles at BladeLogic/BMC Software and Hewlett Packard’s management software group.

“Scott’s proven track record in driving innovation and scaling product management aligns well with our plans to greatly accelerate growth,” said BlueCat CEO Stephen Devito. “Under Scott’s leadership, our industry-recognized portfolio will continue to deliver the flexibility and control organizations need to modernize and optimize their networks for change.”

“I’m thrilled to be joining a world-class organization that’s innovating both organically and acquisitively and has a reputation for strong customer and employee engagement,” said Fulton. “Many of the secular trends in technology are creating new challenges for enterprise networking. I’m eager to collaborate with BlueCat’s talented team, senior leadership, and Audax Private Equity to help drive the company to the next level.”
