Crunchbase, the leading destination for company data, announced the appointment of Clay Tingley as Head of Product. Tingley has more than 20 years of product management experience building enterprise software and delivering exceptional customer experiences. He will be responsible for the entire Crunchbase product line and corresponding product, design, and data teams.
“We are building the platform to enable our users to use Crunchbase to work smarter and make better decisions with data,” said Jager McConnell, CEO of Crunchbase. “Clay brings the experience of delivering both a vision and a product to drive user engagement that will enhance their experience on all levels. Clay immediately saw the vision for the future of Crunchbase as the master record of companies with the tools to enable all users to make the most of data in their professional lives. With his leadership, we’ll be able to realize that dream faster and better.”
Prior to joining Crunchbase, Clay was instrumental in building the core products for Workday and PeopleSoft, with his most recent role being the VP of Product at Percolate. Clay has built exceptional product teams, and maintained focus on vision through massive growth. He joined Workday as the first product manager, and led the main product line’s product management team until the company was a billion dollar revenue business.
“People and product are the most important elements of a successful company, and it was an easy decision for me to join Crunchbase. The product attracts millions of users each month with its database, and building an application layer will add even more value for users. I am looking forward to partnering with the team to deliver a software experience that makes Crunchbase a critical part of the workflow for all types of users,” said Tingley. “The team at Crunchbase has already built a powerful platform, and I am excited to work with them to create the products that our users will love and that will attract professionals and businesses that want to move faster and make more informed decisions.”

This next phase of the company’s development will be another big inflection point.”
