A New Chapter for MuleSource

It’s been an exciting couple of months for MuleSource. We began the year with 2 blowout quarters behind us. Last week we announced that Mark Burton, the former executive vice president of Sales from MySQL has joined the MuleSource board of directors. Mark brings a wealth of sales operating experience from one of the most successful open source companies to date. Mark has an excellent understanding of the different sales dynamics an open source company faces and has an uncanny ability to communicate his ideas on sales operations and strategy that makes you wonder why you never thought of them yourself.


The big news for MuleSource this week is that Greg Schott has joined us as CEO. Greg comes from SpringSource where was senior vice president of Marketing. He’s no stranger to open source and has a extraordinary understanding of open source business models and strategy. Greg also has a proven operation track record where he served as vice president of corporate development at Agile Software (acquired by Oracle). And served as vice president of marketing and vice president of operations at DG Systems. It's been a pleasure getting to know Greg and truly believe he is the right person to lead the team to build on the success of Mulesource. I am really looking forward to working with him.

Here is to the exciting next chapter of MuleSource, thank you for reading.
