Carl Data Solutions Appoints Kevin Marsh as Vice President of Business Development

Mr. Marsh has over 25 years of experience in the water and wastewater-monitoring field including an ownership position at Marsh-McBirney followed by key sales leadership roles at Hach Company and OptiRTC, Inc., two of FlowWorks main hardware solution vendors

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Sept. 26, 2016) - Carl Data Solutions Inc. (CSE:CRL)(FRANKFURT:7C5) ("Carl" or the "Company"), a developer of Big-Data-as-a-Service ("BDaaS")-based solutions for data integration and business intelligence, is very pleased to appoint sales professional, Mr. Kevin Marsh, as Vice President of Business Development ("VP Business Development") and concurrently Vice President of Sales for the Company's subsidiary, FlowWorks Inc.

As VP of Business Development, Mr. Marsh will play an integral role in the expansion of sales of the FlowWorks Application ("FlowWorks" or the "Application") throughout major North American cities and municipalities as well as across multiple new industry verticals targeted at the Utilities sector. Mr. Marsh will be responsible for all business development activities, focusing on commercial matters, including pricing analysis, sales reporting and marketing, benchmarking, commercial and customer strategies and business process improvements of FlowWorks as well as retaining new business in the Internet of Things ("IoT") Utilities markets.

Mr. Marsh has an extensive technical sales background that includes roles as Vice President of Sales of Marsh-McBirney, where he led one of the industry's first successful efforts to commercialize an IoT based Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) solution. After transitioning that business model to Hach Company as their Data Delivery Services division and overseeing the services' rapid market adoption, Mr. Marsh joined Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) start-up OptiRTC, Inc. as their Vice President of Sales and Marketing, further pursuing his passion for bringing disruptive technologies to an otherwise conservative marketplace. In addition, he has held numerous leadership positions in the Water Environment Federation and the American Water Works Association. Mr. Marsh holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Relations from the University of Delaware.

Mr. Marsh commented, "Carl is at the forefront of what many experts are dubbing the next industrial revolution - the nexus of Industrial IoT, which has the ability, through machine learning and artificial intelligence, to organize and make sense of the enormous amount of data that is generated by sensors of all types, every day. I'm thrilled to be in a position to bring Carl's unique solutions to marketplaces that may not otherwise immediately benefit from breakthrough technologies like FlowWorks. Having spent most of my professional life helping municipalities and utilities companies I see the benefits that we can bring to them with this Application. I am very excited to be part of the Carl team as I know we have a great opportunity in a very important and growing industry."

Greg Johnston, CEO of Carl, commented, "We are very pleased to welcome Mr. Marsh to the team. His extensive background in the water and wastewater monitoring field will accelerate our expansion in this market and assist us in introducing our solutions to new industry verticals. As a key member of Carl's executive group, Kevin will provide strong leadership and oversight for our sales and marketing team and critical insight into our overall business development strategy."
