Michael Guerra, former MariaDB, Basho and VMWare leader and Ramona Rolando from Oracle join to foster US growth
ArangoDB, the company behind the leading native multi-model database, winner of 2017 Red Herring Top 100 Europe, today announced that Michael Louis Guerra has formally joined as Head of Sales Americas. Mike’s responsibilities will include building a high-performance sales team and a network of partners across the region.
Mike has over 20 years of experience at public, private, as well as venture-backed startups with a particular focus on open source technologies. He’s an accomplished software sales executive with strong leadership, team building, and business development skills. Most recently, Mike was responsible for growing the Western Territory at MariaDB and Basho Technologies. He helped several companies over two decades leading to acquisitions from Morgan Stanley, Yahoo, and VMware.
Ramona Rolando, a seasoned Sales Leader from Oracle and Honeywell, also joins the team to run Inside Sales in the region.
“Americas is the largest market for ArangoDB with customers massively adopting our product to simplify their stack and improve developers productivity,” said Luca Olivari, President. “Mike’s experience building from the ground up sales and channels will help to accelerate the upward trajectory in the region and we’re honored to have him and Ramona onboard.”
“This is an exciting time to join ArangoDB as the native multi-model vision is picking up steam and some of the largest US companies are adopting the technology,” said Michael Guerra. “ArangoDB helps customers to build more things with fewer things, thus simplifying their stack, in the process resulting in immediate ROI and reduced time to market.”
The last year has brought tremendous progress for ArangoDB, with the company extending its product capabilities, growing its global community, serving a number of Fortune 500 companies and increasing sales and support resources in key regions.
