Sachleben said, “I joined New Relic in 2008 to help build and scale the organization so that millions of developers and engineers could build better software, and faster. After 14 years, I have decided now is the right time for me to retire from New Relic. It has been an honor and a privilege to lead such a dynamic and visionary organization. I am proud to have played a role in helping New Relic grow and deliver on its mission, and I remain committed to ensuring a smooth transition.”
