Joining the Civo leadership team alongside Mark Boost (CEO), Dinesh Majrekar (CTO), and Saiyam Pathak (Director of Technical Evangelism), Josh Mesout has been appointed as Chief Innovation Officer. The Technology Reseller covered this announcement in their latest release by outlining how “his appointment will help accelerate Civo’s mission to build a better cloud-native world”.

Before joining the team, Josh started as a user of Civo back when he “led the technical implementation of Deep Learning based clinical diagnostics using cloud native technologies,”. Josh outlined this progression when speaking with the AI Journal:

“I first met Civo as a customer. I was looking for a place to run my Kubernetes cluster and before long I knew the company had incredible potential. Civo lives and breathes cloud native at a time when interoperability and choice is the key enabler to hybrid cloud adoption, cost savings and access to the cutting edge tools.”

With the ongoing progress to create a better cloud native landscape, the appointment of Josh will allow Civo to progress in the machine learning environment. This will help allow businesses to deliver more processes, according to 74% of executives. As well as this, 55% of executives also think implementing ML will help create new business models and enable the creation of new products and services.

“Civo is thinking differently about how it positions its ML products, focusing on being able to be leveraged by organizations of all sizes and scaled gracefully as our customers grow. Lowering the barrier of entry to using Machine Learning to solve your problems and democratizing access to people who aren’t experts in cloud computing or configuring complex machine learning tools” explained Josh Mesout.

When speaking with Mark Boost, CEO at Civo, he outlined how Josh will bring a new direction to the company with the introduction of Civo ML:

“Josh’s experience and talent speaks for itself. Having someone with such capabilities come aboard is a real boon, and further highlights the strength of the trajectory we’re currently on. I can’t wait to begin working closely with Josh and help him bring his ideas to fruition. It’s an exciting time at Civo.”
