OmniSci Sharpens Focus on Customer Growth With Promotion of Grant Halloran to Chief Commercial Officer
During Period of Hypergrowth, New Executive Position Will Better Empower Organization to Maximize Lifetime Value for Customers
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., April 11, 2019 -- OmniSci, the pioneer in GPU-accelerated analytics, today announced the promotion of Grant Halloran to chief commercial officer, a new position. Previously OmniSci’s chief marketing officer, Halloran now oversees all aspects of the company’s revenue growth and customer activity, including sales, marketing, customer success, field operations, alliances and revenue operations.
“OmniSci is experiencing significant growth in enterprise adoption across many industries and, increasingly, new regions beyond the US,” noted Todd Mostak, OmniSci’s co-founder and chief executive officer. “As we scale to meet this demand, we are excited to take advantage of Grant’s international, hypergrowth experience and also ensure alignment between our market-facing teams for the benefit of our customers throughout their entire journey with us.”
Halloran joined OmniSci in September 2017 as executive vice president and chief marketing officer. Over his 20-year career in enterprise software, Halloran has held a wide range of executive positions including chief marketing officer, chief executive officer and general manager at companies such as Anaplan, Infor and Orbis.
“Over the past few years, OmniSci has built an amazing team, forming the nucleus of an organization passionate about bringing breakthrough technology to our customers. Our goal now is to scale our teams, ensuring we focus on delivering maximum lifetime customer value,” said Halloran. “I’m honored and humbled to work so closely with Todd, and to serve the market-facing team in this new leadership role.”
OmniSci has achieved a number of major milestones in the last year. Following launch of the first-ever cloud service for GPU-accelerated analytics in April, the company rebranded from MapD to OmniSci in September, and followed this in October with a $55 million Series C financing round. The company tripled its revenue run rate in the past year, and with plans to move to new headquarters in San Francisco before Q2 of 2019, expects to double its workforce by the end of 2019.
