Company surges to new heights in enterprise mobility market in 2013; doubles revenues; triples staff; moves to new corporate headquarters
Alpharetta, GA. (PRWEB) December 09, 2013
Catavolt, Inc., quickly becoming a leading provider of enterprise mobility solutions, today announced that Kevin O’Malley has been named Vice President of Marketing, a new position, as the company prepares to build on dramatic growth in 2013.
In the past year, Catavolt’s Extender platform continued to find increasing acceptance amongst companies in the manufacturing, retail, pharmaceuticals and healthcare industries.
The company also closed a $5M Series B investment round in August. San Francisco-based Toba Capital, recently formed by Vinny Smith, former CEO and Founder of Quest Software, led the round in cooperation with Nashville, Tennessee-based FCA Venture Partners, an existing investor in Catavolt and Series A participant.
“By just about any measure, revenue growth, customer acquisition and retention, staff developments or capital investment, 2013 has been an incredibly successful year for Catavolt,” said Catavolt CEO George Mashini. “And we couldn’t ask for a better end to the year than with Kevin coming on board to take our marketing organization to the next level during 2014.”
With about 15 years of product management and marketing experience, O’Malley joined Catavolt from Preparis, where he was senior vice president of product management. During his two year tenure at Preparis, O’Malley, from the ground up, built a modern marketing organization that contributed to increasing the company’s customer base from 20 to over 200 customers.
Prior to joining Preparis, O’Malley worked in product management and marketing leadership positions at The Network, UPS and ACNielsen. He holds a bachelors degree in marketing from Northeastern University and a masters in business administration from Georgia State University.
“I am excited to join an organization that is filled with high-caliber people that are passionate about collaborating with IT and line-of-business clients to mobilize their workforce,” said O’Malley.
Catavolt’s Extender solution is a cloud service that securely provides real time access to all enterprise data in the form of native applications to any mobile device. Catavolt's unique approach, based on its patent-pending Dual Model Architecture, enables organizations to rapidly create and deliver mobile applications to business users without the need for costly and traditionally resource-intensive software development projects.
Catavolt customers receive a highly secure solution that prolongs existing investments, requires few IT resources, and little time to implement. Business users gain a high performance user experience that enhances productivity and provides a differentiated advantage in their markets.
In addition to O’Malley, Catavolt also added key staff in its development, sales and client services teams. The company recently moved into a new corporate headquarters in Alpharetta, Ga. In 2013, Catavolt was also named a Top 10 Innovative Technology Company by the Technology Association of Georgia. Catavolt is committed to helping the Atlanta metro area to achieve its goal of becoming a global hub for mobile technology innovation in 2014 and beyond.
Using funds from its Series B investment, Catavolt plans to further expand its sales organization, product innovation team and market the company's cloud middleware platform more aggressively in 2014.
