During his time at Nutanix, Boynton has helped the company complete multiple private financing rounds, its IPO, and also played a critical role in the company’s early adoption of US GAAP’s revenue recognition standard, ASC 606, in 2017.
Navigating a business model transition is particularly challenging for those in the finance function who must determine, realign and report on a new set of financial and business metrics. Boynton has played a critical role in the company’s successful shift due to his ability to analyze and compare against new financial milestones while supporting the back office team and educating on Nutanix’s progress both internally and externally.
