After going private in August last year, Anil Chakravarthy took over the role of acting CEO and he will continue to serve as the CEO of the company.

Bruce Chizen said: "Anil has distinguished himself as a visionary leader for Informatica.
"Under his leadership, Informatica has successfully transitioned to a private company and is very well-positioned for 2016 and beyond. Anil is the ideal CEO to lead Informatica during this next stage of transformation and growth, and we have great confidence that our success will accelerate under his leadership."
