Tim and I worked on different continents, but we met a few times over the years at our annual sales kickoffs and other events. I was always struck by how committed and passionate he was about his work, and just a nice guy to be around. We feel his loss around the world. My sincere condolences to his family and friends.

Tim was as real as it gets! When the pandemic forced us to shut down travel, Tim and members of his team joined a weekly get-together to build friendships and share laughs. Tim was there nearly every week -- any time 'one of those' Customers didn't get in the way! He enjoyed his work, and he loved his team. On several occasions, I found myself taking his advice whether it approaches to address customers needs or good places to find the best cigar. I remember the last time I saw Tim -- SKO in February of 2020. He was relaxing on a couch after the last session of the second to last day. He was tired but had a smile on his face. I wish I had stuck around longer. We always feel we have more time, and losing Tim was a gut punch. I will miss his laugh, and I will miss his sincere love for his team. I will miss him.

I met Tim at a dinner with 2 other people the night before his first official day at Cloudera. I instantly knew that he was going to do great here and he did some amazing things while at Cloudera. I always enjoyed seeing Tim. He always had something nice to say and was a real pleasure to be around.

Tim Geary and I were brought together by the forces of the merger. Tim was legacy Cloudera, I was legacy Hortonworks. When Tim accepted the opportunity to join my leadership team, we set out together to make over our new SE team as Orange. No more Green or Blue. We wanted to lead our teams by example and be on the leading edge of building the new Cloudera together. In those early days, we bonded around something very powerful we both shared - an unwavering commitment to our people. It brought us together. Over the course of the two years since the merger, through all the ups and downs, we had done what we set out to do ... together. I am so grateful that the last meeting I shared with Tim the Friday before he passed was focused on how to inspire our best people and the last email exchange with Tim I had over that weekend was recognition in front of our shared leadership for the exceptional FY21 results we had achieved together. We were proud of what we had done together and very excited for the new year ahead. I think of Tim every day ... and his team and I have chosen to remember Tim by finding that same common ground between us, an unwavering commitment to our great customers. Tim is family. We miss him dearly.

I was a co-worker with Tim for many years. He was a guy who believed in excellence and lived that everyday. Tim always remembered the human side of the work we do and always had time to discuss family and friends. He will be missed, but always remembered.
