Kirkland-based traffic information provider INRIX said this morning that it has named venture capitalist John Connors to its board of directors. Connors is a partner at Ignition Partners, and formerly served as Chief Financial Officer of Microsoft Corporation. He also serves on the boards of Nike and Splunk. Ignition is not an investor in INRIX. INRIX said that Connors experience in corporate finance and new businesses will help INRIX as it enters new markets and builds relationships with new customers.
