“Marc is an accomplished, results-driven executive leader with a solid history of building high-performing sales teams,” said Higinio (“H.O.”) Maycotte, CEO of Molecula. “We are confident Marc’s leadership and enthusiasm will accelerate our transition to an enterprise-grade software company.”
“Molecula believes we’ve reached a tipping point in data access, where the effort involved in making data accessible for real-time analytics far exceeds the value created with the data,” said Degenkolb. “Enterprises spend a lot of money preparing, aggregating and making numerous copies of their data before they can make decisions with it. I look forward to driving Molecula’s growth and bringing an entirely new approach to real-time data analysis to organizations that need it the most.”
