MySQL alum Zack Urlocker join’s REvolution’s board

March 2, 2010

As you might have heard from this morning’s press release, we’ve just welcomed a new member to REvolution’s board of directors: Zack Urlocker. Zack has an impeccable open-source pedigree: until recently, he was responsible for engineering and marketing at MySQL, the wildly successful open-source database company recently acquired by Oracle (via its acquisition of Sun). Zack is also a frequent guest speaker at major business summits on using open source technology, and blogs at InfoWorld’s Open Sources blog and his own widely-read Open Force blog (and a regular Twitterer, too).

With Zack and the recent appointments of Robert Gentleman and Donald Nickelson (not to mention Tex Hull joining Engineering), REvolution is getting some serious guidance from its Board of Directors. We’re glad to have such a strong team.
