Reporting directly to Hazelcast CEO Kelly Herrell, Wooledge is responsible for leading a world-class marketing organization that will accelerate and extend Hazelcast’s global brand. As the digital economy forces organizations to compete on timeliness, organizations need to enhance the performance of business-critical applications with in-memory computing, and Wooledge will play a critical role in ensuring Hazelcast is viewed as a vital and trustworthy partner.

“We’re entering the in-memory computing era and Steve’s experience in establishing and growing data platform businesses will be critical to helping Hazelcast clearly articulate our value as this technology is going mainstream,” Herrell said. “As a lifelong marketer, his ability to transform complex topics into easily understood stories will enable Hazelcast to grow its business by reaching new, influential audiences at the world’s largest companies.”

Wooledge most recently served as CMO at Arcadia Data, a visual analytics, and business intelligence platform, where he helped drive 500 percent revenue growth within two years. Prior to Arcadia Data, he also had a significant role in revenue growth for MapR Technologies as vice president, product and digital marketing. Additionally, he held leadership roles at Teradata, Aster Data and Business Objects.

“Regardless of the stage of an organization’s strategy to become more data-enabled, the value of in-memory computing is higher than ever and every company can realize an immediate impact from it,” Wooledge said. “Given Hazelcast’s leadership and global adoption in the market, no vendor is better poised to help companies apply in-memory technologies to their applications, ultimately improving the end-customer experience and reducing business risk.”
