Founder and CEO, New Relic
When I sought out to create New Relic, I knew I wanted Dan to be a part of it. For the past decade, from early startup to large public company, Dan and Trinity have been our strategic partners, playing an integral role in the mapping out of our success.
Serial entrepreneur Lew Cirne founded New Relic in 2008 with a revolutionary vision: to deliver application performance monitoring (APM) as a purely SaaS product. By embracing the power and accessibility of the cloud, New Relic grew rapidly and quickly became an integral tool for developers, IT ops teams, and executives around the world.
New Relic helps thousands of customers consistently improve their software performance, every day, all day. They provide deep performance analytics for every part of the software environment, enabling users to easily view and analyze massive amounts of data and gain actionable insights in real-time. New Relic’s dynamic suite of software analytics products is changing the game for modern business.
Lew is the kind of entrepreneur every investor dreams of backing. He’s a brilliant technologist and visionary, but also a kind person and a charismatic leader. I was fortunate to work with him back in 1999, and I’ve been fortunate to sit on his board for over a decade as he’s grown his company into a multibillion-dollar entity and a world leader in performance analytics.
