Infoworks Expands Go-to-Market Team in Response to Rapidly Growing Customer Demand for Modern Data Warehousing on Hadoop

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 27, 2016) - Infoworks.io Inc., a pioneer of modern data warehousing on Hadoop, announced two key additions to its go-to-market team. Grant Bodley joins as vice president of global sales, and Jeff Monk joins as director of sales.

Mr. Bodley is a proven strategic sales leader with over 25 years of experience at some of the world's most innovative companies, from high-growth startups to global industry leaders. He joins Infoworks from Hortonworks (NASDAQ: HDP) where, as general manager, he led the exponential growth of Hadoop adoption. Prior to Hortonworks, Mr. Bodley was vice president, Strategic Customer Program at SAP, where he led a team responsible for SAP's strategic enterprise accounts.

"Having been at the forefront of Hadoop Adoption over the last several years, I have personally experienced the challenges faced by Fortune 500 companies when using Hadoop to achieve their top use cases. Infoworks is the only company that has developed a comprehensive end-to-end solution to data warehousing on Hadoop -- perhaps the biggest challenge that Hadoop customers are facing. I'm thrilled at the opportunity to work with Infoworks to help customers unlock the potential of Hadoop," said Mr. Bodley.

Infoworks also added Jeff Monk to its sales team. Mr. Monk has over 18 years of experience in data warehousing and analytics sales at companies such as IBM (Netezza), Teradata, SAS, Hyperion, and Cognos. He brings a breadth of knowledge in helping enterprise customers leverage data warehousing for business insight.

"We are very pleased to have Grant and Jeff on board to help us address the rapidly growing customer demand for data warehousing on Hadoop.

As a strategic sales executive at Hortonworks and SAP, Grant brings deep insights into how enterprises are leveraging Hadoop to transform their businesses. Grant's knowledge of Hadoop applications coupled with Jeff's background in data warehousing will be instrumental for Infoworks to realize the tremendous market opportunity that Infoworks is addressing," said Amar Arsikere, CEO and co-founder of Infoworks.
