“Eoin is the ideal person to take over as CEO, combining his expertise in operations with a deep understanding of GridGain and the rapidly evolving needs of our customers,” said Geoff Baehr, GridGain’s Chairman of the Board. “I want to thank Abe for his leadership, and I am delighted that we are now handing the reins to someone who will help us continue our rapid growth.”

“I am excited to lead GridGain as we continue to grow and build on the momentum we have created over the last few years,” said O’Connor. “At a time of rapid digital transformation across many businesses, I expect to see more and more enterprises turning to GridGain to address their data challenges.”

Prior to joining GridGain, O’Connor was an executive at a number of public companies, including Oracle and Siebel. He began his career at KPMG specializing in Initial Public Offerings and the audits of hi-tech public companies. He has spent many years in leadership roles across both finance and operations. More recently, at ON24 and Space Time Insight, he was instrumental in managing fast revenue growth in a very short time span. O’Connor has facilitated multiple venture capital funding transactions for GridGain and with other growth-stage companies.

The GridGain in-memory computing platform, built on Apache Ignite, provides in-memory speed and massive scalability to existing data-intensive applications without ripping and replacing existing databases. It can also be deployed as an in-memory database. The platform scales by adding new nodes to the cluster, which can handle petabytes of data. Companies of all sizes see GridGain as a key to the success of their digital transformation initiatives. As a result, GridGain has averaged 40% annual sales growth since 2017, with eight consecutive years of revenue growth.
