Data and AI company Databricks has appointed executive Trâm Phi as senior vice president and general counsel to lead and grow the legal function at the firm.

Phil joins Databricks from DocuSign, where she most recently served as SVP and general counsel, helping to scale the legal function and leading the transition of DocuSign to a mature public company.

Before DocuSign, she was the chief legal officer and chief of staff at Imperva for nearly eight years and was the vice president and general counsel of ArcSight.

“Trâm’s depth of experience and focus on operational excellence in scaling impactful legal and regulatory functions across enterprise software is critical to our continued success as a company,” said Ali Ghodsi (pictured), CEO and co-founder of Databricks. “Her leadership and expertise across both public and private markets will prove invaluable to Databricks in a time of high growth and transition. We are excited to welcome Trâm to the company and look forward to having her as an important member of our executive team.” 

Phi, who has decades of experience scaling high-growth companies, both public and private, will join the firm’s executive leadership team.

“The innovative spirit at Databricks is inspiring and I am thrilled to be joining a pioneering company that’s addressing the challenges and opportunities stemming from the proliferation of data,” added Phi. “Being part of this team as we help our customers harness data in a meaningful way - not only for businesses but for the world around us - is the opportunity of a lifetime and I look forward to what lies ahead.”
