Stockholm May 4, 2010 – Pentaho Corporation, the open source business intelligence (BI) leader, today announced the appointment of Vinay Joosery to the new role of VP of Sales, for the EMEA (Europe Middle East and Asia) region.
Joosery joins Pentaho from BI rival Oracle, where he held senior roles in the Open Source sales teams acquired from Sun’s MySQL division. Based in Stockholm, he will be responsible for continuing the sales growth, which has produced two successive record sales quarters for Pentaho. This strategy will see the expansion of sales capabilities through the region, both through extensive channel partnerships and additions to the Salesforce.
Commenting on his new role, Joosery said: “Pentaho is pioneering the commercialization of a very popular open source product at the very time that many organizations are looking for just such a solution. It is great to see first-hand the real business value that customers are taking today from our offerings. After seven years in sales at the pioneering MySQL, there is no better professional challenge.”
Richard Daley, CEO of Pentaho said: “As the clear leader in commercial open source BI, Pentaho is attracting more attention. Our recent launch, the most successful in our history, is creating a wealth of sales opportunities and we are stepping up our game accordingly. Vinay brings the skill set that will propel our European operations forward at this critical time and build a sales operation that properly service customers and partners across the region.”
