Following the addition of Brock Alston as VP of Sales and the successful Series A launch of the company, MapD is pleased to announce that industry veteran Jonathan Symonds has joined the company as the company's first VP of Marketing.

Jonathan joins MapD at an exciting time in the company's journey and will build out the marketing function at the company from messaging, positioning, awareness and demand generation.

“I am delighted to join such an innovative company at this stage in its development,” said Symonds, “MapD’s technical leadership in pushing the frontiers of database and visualization performance allows enterprises to tackle data challenges that were previously untenable.”

“Adding Jonathan’s background and creativity to the management team is a significant development for us as an organization,” noted MapD co-founder and CEO Todd Mostak. “Jonathan’s extensive experience positioning enterprise analytics solutions across different industries will help us to tell our story more broadly and to accelerate our already rapid growth.”
