He previously held executive-level APAC sales positions at Snow Software and Kinetica in Singapore; he also was senior sales director for enterprise data cloud leader Cloudera, where he was the company’s global sales leader in 2017 and grew that firm’s Asia revenues from zero to $25 million.

 

“OmniSci is a leader and innovator with a well-differentiated platform, and I’m thrilled to join the team,” said Lee. “I’m looking forward to helping the company gain increased traction in Asia and drive an ambitious global sales plan.”
