“Greg brings with him a wealth of knowledge in finance and operations. His public company experience will help guide us as we continue to scale our business to meet our rapid growth and the strong market demand for our next-generation database technology,” said Gary Bloom, chief executive officer and president, MarkLogic. “Looking ahead, as an IPO is the most likely path for the company, we are establishing a board that reflects our future.”
Mr. Santora brings to the Board over 30 years of senior leadership experience from the technology sector. He has served as chief financial officer at Shopping.com where he oversaw its transition from a private company to a successful IPO.

“MarkLogic is solving some of the most complex heterogeneous data integration challenges in the history of IT,” said Santora. “The team has impressively spent over 12 years integrating enterprise capabilities and security features into its database platform, setting the company apart from the competition while positioning itself as the most mature NoSQL database platform on the market today. I am excited and honored to have this opportunity to be a part of the company that is defining the next-generation database market.”
