Big Data Startup AtScale Hires Star CEO
Speaking of savvy hires, AtScale scored a coup this week when it disclosed that it has hired Chris Lynch as its new CEO. Lynch (pictured) is a prominent technology leader, a former Hewlett-Packard executive who ran the vendor's database business unit, an experienced CEO and a venture capital investor in big data companies.
Previous CEO Dave Mariani, who founded AtScale in 2013, is moving over to focus on managing technology development at the San Mateo, Calif.-based company.
AtScale develops software that allows popular business analytics tools like Tableau and QlikView to access large volumes of data, wherever it resides.
AtScale wins bonus points for Lynch's plans to leverage the channel more extensively to accelerate AtScale's growth.
