Atlassian today announced the appointment of Murray Demo as its new Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Demo replaces Erik Bardman whose departure is related to matters with a past employer and not related to his work at Atlassian.

Demo has served as the CFO of Adobe Systems, Dolby Laboratories, LiveOps and Postini. Demo also has served on a number of public and private technology company boards as audit committee chair.

"Murray has a strong record of leading finance organizations at some of the world's most respected and innovative technology companies," said Scott Farquhar, co-founder and co-CEO of Atlassian.
