Leadership Changes at LucidWorks
March 11, 2013
A big announcement in enterprise search hit the news ticker today. LucidWorks, a longtime leader in open source enterprise, is expanding its leadership to meet demand. PR Newswire picks up the headline in its press release, “LucidWorks Promotes Grant Ingersoll to CTO; Appoints Stephen Tsuchiyama as SVP of Worldwide Sales and Services.”
The announcement begins:
“LucidWorks, the company transforming the way people access information, today announced the promotion of search and machine learning expert Grant Ingersoll from Chief Scientist to Chief Technology Officer (CTO), and the appointment of Stephen Tsuchiyama as senior vice president of worldwide sales and services. These changes follow a series of management team additions over the past year that reinforce the company’s commitment to deliver the most advanced platform for developing search-enabled applications.”
Stephen Tsuchiyama comes from Niyte Software as VP and General Manager. His sales experience will provide a powerful compliment to Paul Doscher’s continuing leadership as CEO and Ingersoll’s defining creativity. It is exciting to see a leading company get a boost in manpower, but enterprise search followers should also note the expansion as an indication of the rapid growth of the open source enterprise search market.
