Continuous Delivery Pioneer to Play Leadership Role at Chef as Enterprise DevOps Adoption Surges

SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/20/14 -- Chef, the leader in web-scale IT automation, today announced Jez Humble has joined the company as an engineering vice president. Humble is the co-author of the highly influential book Continuous Delivery: Reliable Software Releases through Build, Test, and Deployment Automation. A noted speaker and lecturer at the University of California, Berkeley, Humble is widely regarded as one of the premier leaders in agile software delivery practices and the implementation of positive organizational change. At Chef, Humble will play a leadership role in shaping Chef's own engineering processes and will guide Chef's continuous delivery solutions strategy amidst surging enterprise DevOps adoption.

Humble joins Chef during a period of tremendous company and community growth.

"I have seen many companies use Chef's platform to enable their move to continuous delivery, and I'm excited about our plans for the future."

"Jez is the man," said Barry Crist, CEO, Chef. "Continuous delivery is so critical to both Chef and our customers. Having Jez's depth and expertise will be enormously helpful over the coming years."
