Anaconda Inc., the world’s most popular data science platform and the
foundation of modern machine learning, today announced the addition of
Ken Hoffman as Chief Revenue Officer and Senior Vice President of
Marketing. Drawing upon 25 years of experience growing both startups and
large technology companies, Hoffman will focus on accelerating sales and
marketing to capitalize on a rapidly growing market. IDC estimates
worldwide spending on machine learning initiatives is slated to grow to
nearly $36 billion in 2019*.
Hoffman has extensive leadership experience accelerating growth in
technology organizations. Through several progressive roles culminating
as Vice President of Emerging Technologies at Red Hat, he established
and built out the firm’s emerging technology salesforce, helping
transform the company from a $1 billion single-product company to a $3
billion multi-product enterprise. Before that, Hoffman was Worldwide
Vice President of Sales at FuseSource, where he led the integration team
following Red Hat’s acquisition of FuseSource. Previously, he served as
Sales Director at Optaros.
“We’re delighted to have Ken join Anaconda as a member of our leadership
team,” said Scott Collison, President and CEO of Anaconda. “He has a
track record of building high-performance sales teams. I’m super pleased
