David Kirven, Chief Marketing Officer, Reltio: “Reltio exemplifies innovation in the master data management space. From launching the first SaaS platform for mastering data to introducing the first completely free MDM cloud service – Reltio Identity 360 – the company continues to define what data management in the cloud should be. I am thrilled to join at a time when the company is making best-in-class MDM software available to companies of literally any size, creating a robust developer ecosystem with open API, and rolling out augmented MDM services such as Reltio Enterprise 360 Site Intelligence.
“Serving new buyers and markets requires a new digitally-driven, customer-centric, value-based branding strategy. I am fortunate to build on a solid foundation that will enable us to amplify Reltio’s brand awareness.”
Chris Hylen, Chief Executive Officer, Reltio: “Making our MDM SaaS platform available to a wide range of businesses is at the core of Reltio’s growth strategy. This requires breaking the enterprise software marketing mold and bringing innovation to our brand, as we do with our cloud services.
