CloudBees named two leaders to C-level posts to accelerate global expansion and operations at a time of significant, sustained growth for the company. Peter Meechan, former chief corporate development officer at Automation Anywhere, joins as chief corporate development officer (CCDO). Jinny Jun, former senior vice president and head of people strategy at Welldoc, joins as chief people officer (CPO).
The appointments come as CloudBees accelerates its growth and expands its global operations which includes more than 500 employees in 22 countries.

Meechan led corporate and business development at Automation Anywhere, a leader in robotic process automation, for the past four years. Previously, he served as chief operating officer at ABBYY, a leader in intelligent document processing and process mining.
His global operating experience spans being a public corporation senior executive, multiple leadership and business unit roles at multi-billion-dollar companies, including Adobe/Macromedia and SONY. Meechan also contributed to animation pioneer Wavefront’s initial public offering and sale to Silicon Graphics, Inc. As CCDO at CloudBees, Meechan will lead the company’s inorganic growth strategy, strategic partnerships and business development, intellectual property and corporate operations.
“Partnerships and strategic M&A are fundamental aspects of our growth strategy. As the DevOps category evolves and reshapes itself in the years ahead, CloudBees will continue to be a pioneer in bringing transformational capabilities to customers worldwide,” said CloudBees CEO Stephen DeWitt. “Peter brings tremendous operating experience and passion to this pursuit. Bringing his expertise and experience to CloudBees is an important dimension in driving our operational maturity.”

Jun will also lead the company’s diversity, inclusion and belonging initiatives to bring unique perspectives and approaches to CloudBees to reflect and serve CloudBees customers.
“We have a tremendous team here at CloudBees and we are at an exciting stage in our growth. To lead in this extraordinary category, CloudBees needs to continue to attract, develop and retain the best talent in the industry,” DeWitt said. “Jinny will play a central role in defining our people strategy to ensure that we’re building the strongest, most capable staff and developing our skill sets to meet today’s and tomorrow’s needs for our customers.”
