Cray elects Stephen Gold to Board of Directors

21 Feb 2019 Seattle - Cray's Board of Directors has elected Stephen E. Gold as a member of the Board and appointed him to the Strategic Technology Assessment Committee.

Mr. Gold has over 30 years of Fortune 100 and entrepreneurship experience. Notably, Stephen Gold was group CMO and vice president business development of IBM Watson, where he was one of the principal business architects responsible for designing and delivering next-generation AI technology.

Mr. Gold is currently the chief commercial officer at HZO, a privately-held global technology solutions company that provides manufacturers and device makers with protective nanocoatings to prevent damage caused by exposure to the elements.

Prior to joining HZO, Mr. Gold was general manager of the connected enterprise (IoT) division at Honeywell, vice president marketing and sales operations at IBM Watson and CMO at SPSS, which was acquired by IBM. He has also held executive-level positions at Aberdeen Group, Azerity - now part of Model N, and Digital Market - now part of Oracle.

Mr. Gold received his Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Illinois and graduated with distinction with an MBA from Carnegie Mellon's Tepper School of Business.

"I am very pleased to join the Cray team at a very exciting time for the company", stated Mr. Gold. "Cray is more than an iconic brand and company, it is meeting and exceeding the challenges industry and governments face by the convergence of supercomputing, Big Data and artificial intelligence. I look forward to serving as a board member and working closely with Cray's leadership team."

"We are very excited to have Steve as part of our team at Cray", stated Peter Ungaro, president and CEO of Cray. "He has an exceptional background and experience in some of our key growth areas which will help us as we strive to serve a broader set of customers whose computing portfolio is expanding in the wake of digital transformation in areas such as AI and IoT."
