IT automation firm Chef announced this week that it has appointed former GE Capital chief technology officer Justin Arbuckle as the company’s vice president of Europe and chief enterprise architect.

Arbuckle will lead European operations and architecture development for Chef (formerly Opscode), which offers an open source-based IT infrastructure automation platform that lets developers apply pre-developed coding templates (a “recipe”) to applications according to a configuration and policy distribution scenario (a “cookbook”).

“Justin is passionate about – and deeply experienced in – using automation to make enterprise IT better, faster, and more agile. His proven track record includ es empowering engineers with web-scale IT principles to deliver unprecedented value for customers,” said Barry Crist, chief executive officer at Chef.

“We’re doubling down on Europe and with Justin at the helm we’re well-positioned to capitalize on this tremendous opportunity,” he said, adding that the company will look to double its EU outfit from 5 to 10 employees by the end of this year.

A technology veteran, Arbuckle formerly served as recently chief architect for GE Capital, where he built the company’s first global IT architecture function and led the company’s IT strategy through one of its largest restructurings.

In addition to heading up architecture functions for other GE companies he has also served as a chief architect for Barclays and IBM.

“Today’s economy is a digital one, meaning web-scale IT isn’t an option, it’s a necessity, for every organisation. Chef is the automation engine of this shift and with Chef, engineers are more important – and more influential – in business than ever before,” Arbuckle said.
