Github Appoints Thomas Dohmke As New CEO

  • Thomas Dohmke will be taking over the reins from current CEO Nat Friedman, who has been at the helm for the past three years.

Microsoft-owned open-source developer platform GitHub recently announced that the company has elevated current Chief Product Officer Thomas Dohmke as CEO of the platform. The change comes at a time when development is moving to the cloud and artificial intelligence (AI).

Dohmke will be taking over the reins from current CEO Nat Friedman, who has been at the helm for the past three years. Friedman was appointed to lead GitHub after the code hosting provider joined Microsoft in 2018 through a $7.5 billion acquisition.

Dohmke joined GitHub in 2018 after leading the acquisition by Microsoft with Friedman. During his time as GitHub’s Chief Product Officer, Dohmke launched new capabilities for products such as Codespaces, Issues, and Copilot that have cured more headaches for developers. Dohmke also led the work to make private repositories free.

“I cannot wait to begin this journey as GitHub’s new CEO and continue to make GitHub better for all developers. We will remain customer-obsessed, working to support teams of all sizes and projects of all scopes—from students that are just learning to code, small and really big open source projects that span the globe to the world’s largest enterprises. And of course, we will continue to operate independently as a community, platform, and business. This means that GitHub will retain its developer-first values, distinctive spirit, and open extensibility. We will always support developers in their choice of any language, license, tool, platform, or cloud,” said Dohmke.
