SAN JOSE, CA: Former Sun Microsystems communications executive Andy Lark has joined a start-up as its CMO.
Lark stepped down from Sun as VP of global communications and marketing at the beginning of this year. Lark had been with Sun for three years.
Lark said he was attracted to LogLogic because the 2-year-old company "is backed by world-class [venture capital firms] and has a world-class management team."
On Lark's blog, he said the company "is to systems data what Google is to the web. We capture 100% of log data from any device - networking, storage, server, application (industry or homegrown) - and enable it to be stored, reported, and alerted on."
Lark added that, as he organizes the company's marketing functions, he is in the midst of an agency search.
Lark will continue to run his communications consulting firm, The Lark Group, which he said does not pose any conflicts of interest.
Before joining Sun, Lark was VP of corporate communications for Nortel. He has also worked for Fleishman-Hillard.
