a16z

VC firm Andreessen-Horowitz has appointed Peter Levine, a veteran of the enterprise software company Veritas (now a part of Symantec) and former CEO of XenSource (now part of Citrix) as partner.

Levine is the third partner to join the firm in recent months; in January 2011 Andreessen-Horowitz named HP and Opsware vet Mark Cranney as a partner for market development, and in March 2011 it added IronPort’s Scott Weiss.

At AH, Levine will focus on investments in the infrastructure area, which broadly includes cloud computing, networking, virtualization, and storage software companies.

Levine is continuing in his role as a VP of Strategic Development at Citrix and will continue teaching a class on Technology Sales at MIT’s Sloan School of Management.
