EnterpiseDB Chooses New CTO

EnterpriseDB has announced that Bob Zurek will be the new Chief Technology Officer. Zurek was previously at IBM where he was the director of product strategy in IBM’s Information Platform and Solutions Group. He was responsible for driving and executing the technical strategy for information integration solutions as they relate to software, hardware, services, vertical industries, and emerging markets.

Before IBM, he was vice president of product management and advanced technologies at Ascential Software (later purchased by IBM), where he was instrumental in developing and driving Ascential’s enterprise data integration software strategy.

Zurek is also a blogger at IBM. You can read his IBM blog at

According to Andy Astor, CEO of EnterpriseDB, “Bob has an impressive track record of technology leadership, and is widely respected for his strategic vision. His insight and experience in the enterprise infrastructure market will be great assets to the company."

Andy says that, "Bob will work closely with co-founder and chief architect, Denis Lussier, and the rest of the executive management team, to help EnterpriseDB solidify its position as publisher of the world’s leading Oracle-compatible database.”

It sounds like Zurek will be a good addition to EnterpriseDB and if he is working closely with Denis Lussier, I am sure he will get up to speed on EnterpriseDB very quickly. Zurek's new job as CTO will include acting as the company’s lead product strategist and technical evangelist.
