“As Boomi continues its rapid growth, we’re excited to attract sought-after leaders to join our mission to make the world a better place by connecting everyone to everything, anywhere,” said David Meredith, CEO at Boomi. “Mark’s exceptional track record as a leader, advisor and visionary — coupled with our award-winning technology and innovation — helps position Boomi to deliver superior outcomes for even more customers.”
As former CEO of Ford Motor Company, Fields brings three decades of experience driving innovation and business transformation initiatives across multi-billion-dollar public companies, as well as private equity-backed technology organizations. Most recently, he served as Interim CEO of Hertz, and currently sits on the boards of Hertz, Qualcomm, Tanium, and Planview. As a senior advisor to TPG Capital, Fields holds an economics degree from Rutgers University and an MBA from Harvard Graduate School of Business.
“From continuing supply chain issues to the exponential rise of business applications and data, we’re seeing increasing demand for integration and intelligent automation,” said Fields. “Boomi has a unique, unmatched ability to solve the most complex business challenges of our time, and I’m excited to join this team on their growth journey.”

As proven advisors, Quinlan and Fields will help guide Boomi in its next phase, driven by its recent launch as a stand-alone company backed by premier private equity firms, Francisco Partners and TPG, in a $4 billion transaction.
