We’re thrilled to welcome Carolyn Feinstein to Dropbox as our Chief Marketing Officer.
We’re excited to share that Aditya Agarwal, our current VP of Engineering, will be taking on the role of CTO. In this new position, Aditya will lead our innovation efforts while continuing to manage our world-class product engineering team. Arash Ferdowsi, our co-founder who’s served as CTO to date, will continue to focus his day-to-day activities on helping Dropbox scale as a company and business.
Since our original post, there have been many reports about the exposure of 68 million Dropbox credentials from 2012. The list of email addresses with hashed and salted passwords is real, however we have no indication that Dropbox user accounts have been improperly accessed. We’re very sorry this happened and would like to clear up what’s going on.
I’d like to share the news that Ajay Vashee will be our new CFO starting September 1. He’ll succeed Vanessa Wittman, who’s stepping down for health reasons.
Dropbox knows what works at work. We’re focused on building products that meet the needs of end users and their IT admins equally well. And it’s working—we’re now free cash flow positive and an industry leader with almost 200,000 Dropbox Business customers.
We’ve updated biannual transparency report, which shows how often we receive and respond to requests for user information from law enforcement, to reflect information for the second half of 2015.
