I was excited to contribute my expertise in a board governance role and be a part of this disruptive story.”
Katrinka McCallum joins Rimini Street’s Board of Directors effective October 1, 2021 and brings more than 20 years of operating experience scaling enterprise software companies from millions to billions.

McCallum is also a certified public accountant (inactive) and has managed investor relations.
“I spent the last 13 years helping to bring the vision of open source commercial products to market and growing Red Hat into a multi-billion-dollar challenger to the status quo of proprietary platforms to bring real value to customers,” said McCallum. “I see Rimini Street well-positioned to become a multi-billion dollar company and I am excited to bring my experience in enterprise software products, customer experience and operational scaling to the Rimini Street Board.”
“We are pleased to have these two highly respected and accomplished technology leaders as members of our board of directors,” said Ravin. “Good governance is essential to our mission of achieving $1 billion in annual revenue by 2026.
