Oct 01, 2017
dotCMS, a leading-edge, open source Java content management software company, announced that its Board of Directors has appointed Ralph Miller as Chief Executive Officer effective October 1, 2017. Miller was also elected to the Board of Directors at dotCMS.
“The timing could not be better for Ralph to become the next Chief Executive Officer of dotCMS. We are at a very exciting inflection point as a software product company and we really wanted someone who could lead us in the next phase of our growth” said dotCMS Co-Founder, Tim Brigham. “Ralph is the type of executive capable of accelerating what we're doing well at dotCMS and disrupting what needs to change. He has a unique ability to combine solid financial oversight, vision and strategy into world-class execution. Ralph will move the company forward with the speed required to capitalize on the opportunities in front of us.”
Mr. Miller was most recently President at Authentic, a leading digital agency based in Richmond, where he was instrumental in guiding the rapid growth of the firm and its acquisition of Create Digital in 2016.
“When the opportunity came up to run the business, I quickly saw what a good fit it was for me, and having been a partner while at Authentic, I've seen first-hand how unique the dotCMS product is and how the market is shifting towards its particular differentiators," said Miller. "I am excited and grateful for the opportunity the board of directors has given me. The product is disruptive and we aim to demonstrate to the market that you can have an enterprise-class product that doesn't break the bank in total cost of ownership or mandate the massive amounts of technical development that some of today’s legacy products require.”
