Enterprise cloud data integration platform Matillion has appointed two new executive leaders. 

Dave Packer will join the Manchester-headquartered company as president, worldwide field operations, and Mark Johnston has been named chief marketing officer. 

Packer and Johnston bring deep and diverse experience leading high-growth organisations and will help fuel the next phase of growth at Matillion, which is well-established in the United States.

“In 2021, Matillion became a leader in the data integration space, raising two triple-digit rounds of funding, introducing critical data integration technology and growing our team across the US and UK markets,” said CEO Matthew Scullion (pictured). 

“Dave and Mark are joining at a pivotal time and bring vital knowledge and experience that will help maintain momentum and push us to new levels of success in the coming year.”

Packer brings roughly three decades of experience leading field operations for technology organisations. Prior to Matillion, he was SVP worldwide field operations at Ping Identity, a leading provider of cloud identity management solutions serving over 1,400 enterprises including industry leaders like Cisco, 3M and Target.

During his seven-year tenure, Packer led the team through multiple product and business transitions, ultimately successfully launching the company into the public market.

“It is an exciting time in the world of cloud data technology with enterprises transforming and evolving their data processes. I am honoured to join the team at Matillion and look forward to supporting our current and future customers on their journey to make their data useful with leading technology,” he said.

Most recently, Johnston was interim CMO and VP product marketing at Domo, a cloud business intelligence platform, having helped grow revenues to $240m.

He also spent 14 years at Microsoft, where he contributed to the successes of the company’s most notable enterprise products, including Azure and Office 365.

“Matillion is a leader in the data integration space and I am thrilled to join this unicorn business at this stage of its growth,” he said. “The culture of customer-obsession and strong values held by each member of the team makes this an incredibly special place to work. 

“I look forward to accelerating growth and differentiation for Matillion in a fast, evolving market.”
