Databricks hired former Salesforce exec Andy Kofoid to lead its global field operations, per a Tuesday release.
Alongside the hiring announcement, Databricks also disclosed a $1.6 billion Series H round. The company is now valued at $38 billion.
Kofoid, who previously served as Salesforce's North American president, is the latest high-profile defection from the software giant. Former Salesforce executive vice president Jon Sigler also recently left for ServiceNow.
