Attunity Ltd. (NASDAQ CM: ATTU), a leading provider of information availability software solutions, announced today that it has appointed David Collins as Regional Vice President for Attunity's North American Sales Management team. In his new role, effective immediately, David is charged with leading sales efforts and driving sales growth for the eastern regions of the United States and Canada.
A seasoned senior executive, David brings a deep level of sales leadership experience with him to Attunity. David joins Attunity from Intel Corporation where he led the worldwide Datacenter sales effort including Intel's Big Data products and services. In this capacity, he managed, among other things, the go-to-market strategy, channels and sales teams for the Intel Distribution for Hadoop. After Intel's groundbreaking investment in Cloudera, David led the sales and field marketing integration between the two companies.
Previously, David had served in a variety of senior management roles including Vice President of Enterprise Sales for North America at AudioCodes, Vice President of Enterprise Sales for Aladdin Knowledge Systems, and Worldwide Vice President of Sales for VoIP start-up Qovia (acquired by Cisco). He has also served as a senior sales executive at Cisco Systems.
David explained, "After spending several years engaging with large enterprises on how to solve Big Data and IoT business and cost challenges, I can fully appreciate the value that Attunity technology provides to the market. I am excited to join this rapidly-growing company, which has already demonstrated a clear vision for how it can help enterprises successfully orchestrate the movement of massive quantities of data and enable more users to extract value from data - much more affordably than alternative solutions."
"David's vast experience as a sales leader and his proven ability to develop Big Data and Hadoop business pipeline are key additions to the Attunity team," stated Shimon Alon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Attunity. "We are confident in David's ability to accelerate our revenue growth and we look forward to continued expansion in the Eastern region of North America."
