Censio Announces Vance Loiselle as Chief Executive Officer to Drive Growth

Brings Long Track-Record of Success With Startups and Publicly Traded Enterprise Technology Companies

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jan 19, 2016) - Censio, a technology company that uses innovative software and big data to make driving safer and more affordable, today announced the appointment of Vance Loiselle as Chief Executive Officer. He will have overall responsibility for strategic and corporate development, marketing, sales and operations.

"Vance has deep experience in not only founding and growing start up technology companies, but also in running large scale enterprise businesses," said Scott Griffith, former Chairman and CEO of Zipcar and a co-founder of Censio. "His background, especially with data analytics and Internet of Things, is a perfect fit with Censio's trajectory in 2016 and beyond."

Loiselle has more than 20 years of experience building high-tech companies into market leaders. As co-founder of BladeLogic, he helped lead the company from idea and initial funding to IPO and subsequent $880 million acquisition by BMC Software. Throughout BladeLogic's eight-year trajectory from inception to acquisition, Loiselle held multiple leadership roles in product management, marketing, business development, pre-sales and operations.

After BladeLogic was acquired by BMC Software in 2008, he remained with BMC Software for four years serving in various executive positions, including worldwide vice president of global services, sales operations, field marketing and software consulting. Most recently, Loiselle was president and CEO of Sumo Logic, leading the company from launch through multiple years of hyper growth in employees, customers and revenue. Loiselle holds a Bachelor of Science in Information Systems/Accounting from Babson College.

That's truly powerful."
