New Executive Hires at Splice Machine
September 8, 2014
This summer has been a busy one for our rapidly growing startup.
We extended our Series B financing, launched our Public Beta and announced the first members of our Advisory Board. Plus, we were selected by AlwaysON as an OnDemand Winner and by Red Herring as a Top 100 North America winner. With these successes comes opportunity for growth, and room for some very important new hires.
We would like to announce two additions to our executive leadership team, Eran Pilovsky, Chief Financial Officer, and Krishnan Parasuraman, Vice President of Business Development.
Eran has been supporting our company since 2012 and we are now incredibly excited to have Eran as a full-time member of the team. Bringing over 25 years of financial management experience to Splice Machine, Eran has been the CFO of growth-stage venture backed companies in the SaaS, digital media, and cloud/internet services spaces, including Grand Junction, Metacafe and SugarSync.
Krishnan Parasuraman joins us from IBM, where he served as a Big Data sales leader, responsible for driving revenue growth of IBM’s Big Data platform across a global client portfolio. Krishnan brings over 18 years of experience to the Splice Machine team. He has served in diverse roles including R&D, engineering, product management, consulting, sales and business development. Krishnan speaks regularly at industry events and is the author of the book, Harness the Power of Big Data.
In their new roles, both Eran and Krishnan will help us to expand adoption of our Hadoop RDBMS across the enterprise and we’re excited to have them on board at Splice Machine.
