I’m excited to announce today that MemSQL has expanded its executive team with the hiring of Carl Wright as EVP of Worldwide Sales. Carl is exceptional both as a technologist and as a sales leader. We are delighted he has joined MemSQL to help us capture all the demand we’re seeing since we announced the release of our distributed memory-centric real-time analytics platform last month. Carl is already active in the field with customers and prospects while building a top-notch team for MemSQL.

Carl joins us from Coraid, where he increased their revenue 12x in three years and brought on 1,500 new customers. He’s also held executive positions at Kidaro, acquired by Microsoft, and Decru, acquired by NetApp. Before this, he was Chief Information Security Officer for the U.S. Marine Corp, where he was responsible for a network that supported 120,000 users worldwide, so he’ll ensure excellent technical depth on our sales team.
