At Rackspace, he delivered the best three sales quarters in Rackspace history following several quarters of decline.

As part of a planned transition process, Steve Anderson, Chairman and AutoLoop founder, will continue to be involved with the company in a Chairman role, focused on strategy, products and key customer relationships. “Sid has a proven track record of driving transformative growth at large-scale technology companies,” said Anderson. “He’s singularly focused on growth and has accomplished that at every company he’s worked with in the past. Sid is an extremely positive, high energy, engaging and motivating leader. He has a customer-first mentality and is a strong champion for all internal team members as well. I’m very pleased that we have someone of Sid’s caliber to serve as our new CEO and look forward to seeing his immediate impact on the business.”
