San Diego-based Tealium has appointed Brian Blond as chief revenue officer to help accelerate the company's global growth strategy. Blond will oversee all direct and indirect distribution channels.
Prior to Tealium, Blond served as the CRO of Vitrue, a social marketing platform provider, where he was instrumental in scaling distribution to achieve revenue expansion, leading to a strategic acquisition by Oracle in 2012. Before Vitrue, Blond held positions at Moxie Software as senior vice president of worldwide sales during an intense growth period, and as sales director of BladeLogic, where his efforts contributed to the company's successful IPO.
At Tealium, Blond will leverage his more than 15 years of strategic business development and sales experience in the software technology arena to work closely with the sales team, and to expand that team into new territories globally.
In the first quarter of 2013, Tealium achieved a 185 percent increase in sales and 245 percent increase in non-GAAP revenue. Tealium also received $15.6M in Series C Financing from Tenaya Capital, Battery Ventures and Presidio Ventures.
