Artur Bergman is the chief architect and executive chairperson for Fastly, a new edge cloud platform provider.
Bergman has held these roles since February 2020. Previously, he was Fastly’s CEO, from the time of its founding in 2011. From 2007 to 2011, he served as manager, vice president, and then CTO at Wikia, Inc. (now Fandom), a wiki hosting platform.
Prior to that, he was the engineering manager for social networking service, SixApart, and then for a subsidiary of Canon Europe called Fotango, Ltd.
At Fastly, Bergman aims to deliver secure and reliable online experiences for organizations and communities worldwide. Fastly is a trusted proprietary edge cloud platform for accelerating technical innovation, mitigating evolving threats, and scale on demand.
Bergman has grown and developed the company from a content delivery network to a powerful edge computing platform. He took the company public in May 2019, having raised $220 million in venture capital ahead of the IPO. At the time, the company’s customers included Alaska Airlines, Spotify, The New York Times, and Microsoft’s Github. The company’s revenue model involves customers being charged based on usage, rather than as a subscription service.
Bergman stepped down as CEO not long after the IPO, noting that his strength and passion lies in development rather than leadership. He built a company focused on transparency, inclusion, and integrity, as well as fostering a kind and diverse employee culture. Bergman believes that diverse talent has the power to create real value and impact for users worldwide.
