Todd is a Silicon Valley veteran with over 20+ years of experience in marketing and general management. Prior to Waterline, he was the COO at Bina Technologies, a large data genomics software company acquired by Roche Sequencing. Before Bina, Todd was Vice President and General Manager for Enterprise Data Integration at Informatica where he was responsible for their PowerCenter software product line. Todd has also held marketing and leadership roles at a number of startups and large organizations, including Nlyte, Exeros (acquired by IBM), ScaleMP, Netscape/AOL, and HP.

Goldman joins Waterline Data as it continues to earn industry accolades.

The company was also included in Constellation Research’s “Short List for Data Lake Management” and named a “Cool Vendor in Information Governance” by Gartner.
“Most organizations know data needs to be at the heart of many of their most critical business decisions, but they’re struggling to put their data to use,” said Todd Goldman, CMO at Waterline Data. “Waterline Data helps companies lift their data out of the shadows and into the light where business professionals can best understand what data they have, so they can optimize its value. Waterline’s ability to connect the right people to the right data is extremely powerful in helping companies take advantage of their data assets, and I’m excited to have the opportunity to build on the company’s already strong momentum.”
