The company has appointed Steve Lucas as CEO.

Lucas joins Boomi from iCIMS and brings more than 27 years of experience in enterprise software. He succeeds David Meredith, who has stepped down from the role to pursue other interests.

Lucas has significant experience leading and operating some of the world’s most innovative software companies. Prior to spending three years growing iCIMS into a premier talent cloud company, Lucas held executive roles at Adobe, Marketo, SAP, and Salesforce. As CEO of Marketo, Lucas implemented significant product expansion and platform growth, leading to Adobe’s $4.75 billion acquisition of the company.

“I’ve spent more than two decades building and growing software companies, and the need for integration across the enterprise has never been more clear or critical,” Lucas says.

“Boomi is one of few independent, cloud-native platforms of scale that is enabling greater automation and efficiency across the organisation, helping teams understand, share, and optimise data in better and faster ways. I am excited to partner with the team to grow and expand our platform for the benefit of our customers.”

Lucas’ joining coincides with a time of significant momentum at Boomi. In July, the company set an industry record for the largest customer base among integration platform vendors – and recently tripled the growth rate of new bookings year over year. The company also welcomed three world-class executives to its board: Mark Fields, former CEO of Ford Motor Company, Larry Quinlan, former CIO of Deloitte, and Janine Seebeck, the CEO of BeyondTrust.

“Over the past year, Boomi has invested in product innovation, strengthened its capabilities in areas such as automation, and deepened its presence in new and existing markets across the globe,” say Brian Decker and Andrew Kowal of Francisco Partners.

“As the company continues its strong growth, it’s the right time to transition leadership to Steve, who has an established track record of building and scaling innovative software businesses," they add.

“Steve is an accomplished executive known for his dynamic leadership, distinct operating expertise, and strong culture-building capabilities. With his guidance, we are confident that the Boomi team will continue to thrive,” continue Art Heidrich and Nehal Raj of TPG.

“We also want to recognise and thank David for his strong contributions to Boomi," they add.

“I am deeply proud of what the Boomi team has accomplished, from its record customer growth to numerous industry recognitions, which are a testament to the strength of the Boomi product and people,” Meredith says.
