Grant Brigden has been appointed as Marketing Vice President.
In this capacity, he will help drive Cinchy's growth as it expands throughout major markets in North America and Europe, and help oversee the addition of tech solutions that enable every constituency in the organisation to collaborate on operational data in real-time and build unlimited digital solutions with half the time and cost of traditional approaches.
"It's exciting to join a company that really is disruptive, it's not a cliché or empty hype," Brigden notes.
"We have so much data now, and it's so hard to access, that we need to transform the way data is managed and made available to the people and applications that need it most, and Cinchy does exactly that.
The Cinchy Dataware Platform liberates enterprise data into a network, an approach that fundamentally eliminates data integration and enables the Zero-Copy integration framework to enhance collaboration without compromising security or compliance.
"I look forward to taking this dramatic technology advance to many new target markets."
Brigden comes to Cinchy with a creative and entrepreneurial background, having created and co-founded the tech startup Rover Parking, which has been described as the 'airBnB of parking.' He led the company through its successful acquisition by SpotHero in 2021.
In addition, Brigden has been nominated as an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year, a finalist for the PwC Vision to Reality Award, won the Infiniti Automobile Startup Program, and was named by The Globe & Mail as one of Canada's most promising startup founders.
"Taking a dynamic solution to market depends on having dynamic professionals on the team, and Grant fits the bill perfectly," says Dan DeMers, CEO and Co-Founder, Cinchy.
"We're entering a new phase with our go-to-market strategy, and we need an entrepreneur with a passion for innovation to lead our marketing efforts.
"We welcome Grant to the Cinchy family, and we look forward to big moves ahead."
