Blameless announced Lyon Wong, Founder and CEO of Blameless, has decided to take a new role as Executive Chairman. Jim Gochee is hired as the new CEO.

“As Blameless continues its rapid growth, I believe that now is the best time to add someone like Jim to the executive team. Myself and the rest of the board are excited to have found Jim and he is the right fit to join the exceptional executive team already assembled. I recruited Jim because he brings a great level of empathy for customers and their issues. He knows the challenges that SRE teams face and has handled his share of major incidents. I am confident in Jim’s leadership ability to scale Blameless and fully support him with my direction on company strategy and vision as Chairman,” said Wong.

Gochee brings over three decades of engineering and DevOps experience with eleven years at New Relic, where he held numerous positions including VP of Engineering, Chief Product Officer and Chief Technical Officer. In 2016, Gochee oversaw the formation of New Relic’s Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) practice where he saw first-hand the benefits of building a reliability-first culture. He began his career at Apple, where he received a number of patents for the work he did as a member of the System Software division.

“I’m grateful for the opportunity to lead Blameless as we move to our next phase of growth. My goal is to get Blameless into the hands of as many engineering teams as possible,” said Gochee. “Reliability is fundamental to every digital experience, and it starts with strong incident management rigor. Every on-call engineer needs steps to follow, support along the way, and the ability to capture data for later analysis. I’m excited about the value we’re delivering to our customers, and I look forward to helping them mature their reliability practices.”
