Chef is Now a Part of Progress

I can’t wait to see what Progress and Chef can do together.

Chef is already the industry’s preeminent DevOps and DevSecOps technology leader and has helped drive digital transformation for developers and Fortune 500 customers. Progress is a trusted provider of the leading products to develop, deploy and manage high-impact business systems.

The combination of Progress and Chef brings together two great companies with powerful legacies and teams of amazing employees. What separates this combination from our competitors is our commitment to making our customers and partners successful.  

At Progress, I was responsible for driving all facets of early stage product lines, including NativeChat and Fiddler. Now, I will serve as the GM of Chef business following the acquisition by Progress.

I believe Progress can build on what Chef has already created. We can provide the systems, processes, and additional resources to add to the success of Chef’s customers and developer community. 

Progress has been providing industry-leading application development and digital experience technologies for nearly 40 years. Whether you’re a financial institution that relies on Progress OpenEdge or you’re a developer who uses Telerik or Kendo UI components, we offer a well-rounded platform to help customers and developers every step of the way and all over the world. And with Chef, it just got better.

Today, Progress serves more than 1,700 software vendors, 100,000 enterprise customers and supports a community of 2 million developers. Products built on Progress technology benefit hundreds of millions of consumers globally.

Now, we will bring an infusion of innovation and R&D to provide even more value to the developers and IT operations that Chef champions.

Software automation is the foundation for transformative change, and Chef has been relentless in its pursuit of excellence as a pioneer in the industry. Progress shares those same values and same spirit.

To be the best, you have to be committed to creating the best, and you have to work with the best.

That’s precisely why Progress has invested in Chef — to take both companies to the next level.
