London, UK (PRWEB) July 15, 2012
Acunu, a provider of Big Data database technologies, today announced that its board of directors has named Chris Gomersall to serve as the company’s Chief Executive Officer and President.
Gomersall was attracted to Acunu (http://www.Acunu.com) because he recognized the tremendous potential Big Data has to impact business.
"It's a privilege to be joining the Acunu team. The team has secured some powerful early wins on the back of some truly phenomenal technology. Big Data as a trend, and Acunu's approach to delivering real-time insight in particular, has the potential to transform how people do business and connect with each other. I believe Acunu is absolutely the hottest Big Data company in Europe and I look forward to leading the company to the next level."
Gomersall most recently served as VP EMEA at ServiceNow. He has spent his career in a range of executive and management positions. He sits on the board of Ipsotek. Recent positions include VP EMEA PolyServe and CEO Ipsoteck. Earlier in his career he was with Tivoli, Peregrine, Oracle and Sequent.
Mark Farmer, of Eden Ventures, said that the board unanimously selected Gomersall based on his track record for leading developing organizations, as well as his strong executive and personal qualities. “He brings both a strong track record and a wealth of experience in building cohesive high-functioning teams,” Farmer said.
Gomersall will take up his new duties immediately and joins Acunu’s board. He succeeds Tim Moreton, who has been CEO since co-founding the company in 2009. Moreton remains with the company as Chief Product Officer. Moreton said, "Chris has great experience leading and building out commercial organisations and has deep knowledge of the database and storage space. We are excited to have him join us as we grow our winning commercial team."
Gomersall will lead Acunu in to the next phase of growth for the burgeoning company.
