Cloudwick Expands Sales Team as It Doubles Big Data-as-a-Service Revenues in 2015

Cloudwick Hires Industry Sales Veterans to Lead Its Enterprise BDaaS

Newark, California – October 13, 2015Cloudwick, the leading Big Data-as-a-Service provider to the Global 1000, has expanded its sales management team with the addition of Chris Mische as Global Director of Sales and Brendan Stone as Western Region Account Executive. Both will report to Mark Schreiber, General Manager. As Global Director of Sales, Mische is responsible for managing Cloudwick’s direct and channel sales in the U.S. and EMEA, while Stone will focus on expanding the company’s Western U.S. BDaaS and Analytics-as-a-Service (AaaS) business.

Mische is recognized as one of the leading big data sales executives by Cloudera, Hortonworks, MapR, Intel, and Amazon Web Services as having been responsible for leading enterprises like Nike, Kaiser Permanente, United Healthcare, Honda, NBC, Optum and GE to becoming modernized and data-driven. This experience positions him well to expand the Cloudwick sales team and further strengthen the company’s partnership programs. Prior to joining Cloudwick, Mische held sales management positions with Zaloni, NetApp, Zirious and McKesson.

Stone comes to Cloudwick from his position in big data enterprise sales at WANdisco, where he was a top performing account manager and consistently exceeded quota. Prior to WANdisco, he held sales positions at Marketo, Oracle and SAP, which gives him rich technology insight to offer clients seeking Cloudwick’s BDaaS and AaaS solutions.

“Chris is an accomplished sales executive who is adept at creating and initiating successful sales programs in the open source space, and he’s already hit the ground running,” said Mark Schreiber, Cloudwick GM. “Brendan also brings a similar level of experience in Big Data and has an extensive history of continually exceeding quota. These appointments are the next step in our growth acceleration, allowing us to bring our services to more customers as more and more requests come in.”

The sales expansion comes as Cloudwick’s revenue has more than doubled in 2015 as demand for its BDaaS and AaaS continues to accelerate as more enterprises find competitive advantage from Hadoop, Cassandra and Spark. According to MarketsandMarkets, Big Data-as-a-Service is poised to grow from $1.8 Billion in 2015 to $7.0 Billion in 2020 at a CAGR of 31.5% (“Big Data as a Service Market by Type of Solutions — Hadoop as a Service, Data as a Service, Data Analytics as a Service — Global Forecast to 2020,” September 2015).
