San Francisco, California

Semarchy, the Evolutionary master data management (MDM) firm, announced today that Steve Millard is joining Semarchy as the company’s Chief Operating Officer (COO). Millard has served at Informatica as General Manager of the Americas where he led all sales, presales and operations in the Americas. With over 30 years of experience, Millard will be instrumental in helping Semarchy transform the MDM market. Semarchy aims to change MDM’s reputation from an expensive, drawn-out and risky proposition to a modern approach that is value-driven, agile, and trusted.

“I am excited that Steve is joining our company at this very important inflection point for the business,” says Salah Kamel, CEO of Semarchy. “I am confident that his skills and expertise will accelerate Semarchy’s growth.” Millard fills a critical management role as the company expands its operations in the U.S. and worldwide.

Prior to Informatica, Millard was the CEO of Kognitio, a London-based pioneer in data analytics. He has also served in leadership and executive positions for IBM, Sun Microsystems, Teradata, Netezza (IBM), and Greenplum (EMC).

“Semarchy has the opportunity to transform the MDM market just like Salesforce did to the CRM market and that’s why I’m joining the company,” Millard says. “Semarchy’s technology can make MDM available to any sized company. Both Fortune 1000 companies and SMBs can now benefit equally from Semarchy’s solution. Semarchy is well positioned to disrupt a traditional, legacy market that has stopped innovating in the past decade.”

Millard will drive Semarchy’s overall strategy, positioning the company to capture significant gains in market share in 2017 and beyond. He will also be responsible for building Semarchy’s sales engine through direct and indirect channels.

Millard and Semarchy’s leadership team including Kamel are attending the Master Data Management and Data Governance conference on Nov. 8-10 in New York. Bose, a Semarchy customer, will be presenting their successful customer data initiative as a case study in following the Evolutionary MDM approach.
