Analytics firm Datameer has appointed George Shahid as Chief Financial Officer and Jeff Gallagher as SVP of Sales.
Datameer offers a self-service Hadoop big data application, which includes a point-and-click analytics tool and a drag-and-drop visualization solution. The firm currently has US offices in San Francisco and New York, as well as a European base in Halle, Germany.
Shahid previously served as CFO of a number of companies including Augmedix, Loyaltylab (acquired by TIBCO), Blueroads and Differential (now a part of Tumbleweed); while Gallagher has more than 25 years' experience in enterprise software, including leading sales, professional services and field operations at Oracle and Teradata. Datameer says Gallagher's previous focus on building data-driven business models and transforming existing and new business through analytics and data monetization will play a 'key role' in the firm.
Recently appointed CEO Christian Rodatus comments: 'George and Jeff both bring enormous value to Datameer. With their passion for impact, drive to disrupt the status quo and the desire to continue Datameer's market success, we are incredibly well positioned to help customers become more agile by connecting data across multiple functions, improving automation, and driving collaboration across the organization with new data and insights'.
