Software company MemSQL is excited to announce the signing of former Google executive Jordan Tigani as its Chief Product Officer. Mr. Tigani will oversee MemSQL’s engineering and product teams, aiming to scale operations and continue the development of the company’s cloud products.
“The product and engineering effort at MemSQL represents half of the company,” said MemSQL co-CEO and co-founder Nikita Shamgunov. “Given Jordan’s deep technology experience, unparalleled cloud and database domain expertise, and proven success, he is the ideal match for this position, and MemSQL could not be more excited to welcome him aboard.”
Mr. Tigani is one of the founders of Google BigQuery, and has played a key role in its growth as an executive in both engineering and product departments.
“MemSQL offers me a great opportunity to use both sides of my brain,” said Mr. Tigani. “Having been a product manager, an engineering manager, and an engineer, this role fits my background extremely well. MemSQL has enormous potential. It reminds me of BigQuery a few years ago – stellar technology, just needing a bit of polish and focus before taking off into the stratosphere. I’m excited to be a part of that journey.”
