San Jose, Calif., April 26, 2018 – Virtual Instruments, the leader in application-centric infrastructure performance management (IPM), today announced that its Chief Technology Officer, John Gentry, has been accepted into the Forbes Technology Council, an invitation-only community for world-class CIOs, CTOs and technology executives.

Gentry joins other Forbes Technology Council members, who are hand-selected, to become part of a curated network of successful peers and get access to a variety of exclusive benefits and resources, including the opportunity to submit thought leadership articles and short tips on industry-related topics for publishing on Forbes.com.

Forbes Councils combine an innovative, high-touch approach to community management perfected by the team behind Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC) with the extensive resources and global reach of Forbes.

“I am honored to be invited to be a part of such a prestigious and unique forum for discussing major trends in technology and their impact on business and society in general,” said Gentry. “Information technology has evolved from being a supporting function of business to becoming central to the success of organizations looking to deliver quality services. I’m looking forward to collaborating with such a diverse group of contributors and discovering how our dialogue can inform the future of our industries.”

Scott Gerber, founder of Forbes Councils, said, “We are honored to welcome John Gentry into the community.
