Boyes brings to SOASTA an established record of financial and operational leadership for venture capital-backed software companies, in addition to technology investment banking experience. Prior to SOASTA, Boyes was the CFO and COO of ID analytics, a pioneering consumer risk management software provider, where he led the company through its sale to LifeLock, Inc. and subsequent IPO (NYSE: LOCK). Boyes has extensive experience in merger and acquisition transactions, public offerings and private capital transactions as an investment-banking executive for Avondale Partners and Trumpet Partners.

“Pete is an important addition to our team at SOASTA at this stage of the company’s growth,” said Lounibos. “Pete’s accomplished leadership background across both leading technology companies and investment banking firms translates to the kind of forward-thinking, innovative approach that guides SOASTA as we rapidly scale, expand our products and technology and continue to provide a transformative alternative to slow and expensive legacy systems.”

“Many of the world’s most successful companies trust SOASTA’s technology to maintain the quality of their online and mobile channels – which in turn affect virtually every aspect of operations, brand reputation and overall performance,” said Boyes. “I’m excited to step into this role and build upon SOASTA’s vision of delivering the highest-quality user experience and business-critical application performance that outdated legacy competitors can’t provide, and to make powerful testing accessible to anyone.”

Boyes began his career at Coopers & Lybrand and received his bachelors and MBA degrees from the University of Southern California.
