BOSTON — AtScale, the Virtual Data Warehouse Company, today announced the appointment of Mike Carlino as Vice President, Customer Success. Based in Boston, Carlino is responsible for driving AtScale’s customer-first business approach as the company continues to expand globally. He brings more than 25 years of executive experience building and leading global customer programs at early stage start-ups while guiding them through successful IPOs and acquisitions, both domestically and internationally.
The new appointment reflects AtScale’s deepened commitment to expand its leadership team and invest globally, core components of the company’s aggressive growth strategy laid out following its $50 million financing at the end of 2018. Fueled by organizations wanting to modernize their analytical environments while embracing the cloud, AtScale opened a new office in Boston located near South Station in January to serve as East Coast headquarters. AtScale’s “HQ2” enables the company to capitalize on Boston’s impressive tech scene, in addition to expanding other locations including its West Coast headquarters in San Mateo, CA; development center in Sofia, Bulgaria; and ASEAN presence based in Singapore.
Prior to AtScale, Carlino built and led worldwide customer care at Sonos, Inc., the industry leading manufacturer of smart speakers, for eleven years. He also held executive leadership positions at some of Boston’s most successful technology companies, including Bay Networks (acquired by Nortel Networks) and Quantum Bridge Communications (acquired by Motorola).
“Mike is an accomplished entrepreneur and customer success visionary,” said Chris Lynch, Executive Chairman and CEO, AtScale. “He is an important member of our leadership team and integral to the company’s global expansion. With AtScale’s strong foundation and Mike’s contributions, we will build on our success in 2018 and continue to accelerate ROI from operational analytics within the Global 2000.”
As more enterprises move to cloud and hybrid cloud environments, it is increasingly important they have the ability to virtualize data engineering and enterprise data warehouses to turn their data into a competitive advantage. AtScale enables enterprises to virtualize analytical data no matter where it is stored – data warehouses, data lakes, data marts or emerging cloud data platforms, providing a singular view of the information to business intelligence, AI and machine learning applications.
“The market opportunity for AtScale is tremendous. The transformative power of analytics for both consumer and enterprise organizations is unparalleled and grows as challenges for enterprises trying to manage the complexity of analytical environments increases,” said Carlino. “I’m excited be part of a team helping customers alleviate the complexity of modern technology to maximize their analytical ROI and ultimately, succeed with digital transformation.”
The company had a banner year in 2018. In addition to its $50 million in Series D founding round led by Morgan Stanley, AtScale on-boarded more than 50 new customers, expanded global efforts by entering new markets across Europe and Asia, and secured strategic partnerships including Cloudera, Microsoft and Oracle.
