Having had the privilege to be involved with Infochimps since its founding in the summer of 2009, and having led the company for the last year as CEO, it is with mixed feelings to announce that I will be reducing my day-to-day responsibilities with the company. In the interim, my co-founder Joe Kelly will be taking the reins. Having worked with Joe since the beginning, I know it will be a smooth hand off and the company will be in good hands as we expand. I will continue to be involved with Joe and the team as a Board Advisor.
In my time as CEO, we closed two rounds of financing, grew a tremendous user base, and built a best in class engineering team, including those that joined us through our acquisition of Keepstream. Our data catalog now boasts over 200 suppliers including Twitter and Foursquare, and with over 10,000 customers we’re well on our way toward our mission of democratizing access to data.
I’m excited to take what I’ve learned at Infochimps and all the friends I’ve made and apply it to something new and exciting. I look forward to what’s next, but am equally excited to continue to help the Infochimps team build the best data company in the world!
