Nutanix Appoints Aaron Boynton as Chief Accounting Officer

San Jose, Calif. — February 24, 2020Nutanix, (NASDAQ: NTNX), a leader in enterprise cloud computing,  announced that, effective February 1, 2020, it appointed Aaron Boynton as Chief Accounting Officer to scale its global accounting function, and oversee all financial reporting and compliance efforts. Boynton joined Nutanix in 2013 and helped lead the accounting function through the company’s significant growth and its IPO in 2016.

“Aaron has made a significant contribution to Nutanix already and will continue to do so as our new Chief Accounting Officer,” said Duston Williams, Chief Financial Officer at Nutanix. “His efforts helped Nutanix successfully navigate the IPO process - the biggest U.S. tech IPO of 2016 - as well as many important transitions, including our current one to a subscription licensing model.”

During his time at Nutanix, Boynton has helped the company complete multiple private financing rounds, its IPO, and also played a critical role in the company’s early adoption of US GAAP's revenue recognition standard, ASC 606, in 2017. 

Navigating a business model transition is particularly challenging for those in the finance function who must determine, realign and report on a new set of financial and business metrics. Boynton has played a  critical role in the company’s successful shift due to his ability to analyze and compare against new financial milestones while supporting the back office team and educating on Nutanix’s progress both internally and externally.

Before coming to Nutanix, Boynton managed external reporting and technical accounting at Seagate Technology. Prior to that, he worked at Deloitte, where he focused on serving the firm's software and technology clients, as well as advising clients on international capital markets transactions.
