Bruce's previous roles in sales, marketing, operations, and mergers and acquisitions at a number of successful technology companies position him exceptionally well to guide Pica9 as the company continues to grow its SaaS local marketing platform, CampaignDrive. Pica9 CEO Kevin Groome has called Mr. Reading's appointment to the board "an honor," saying that "a business leader of Mr. Reading's stature will be a valuable advisor for Pica9 at this point in our growth." Groome adds "we're excited to leverage Bruce's ideas and insights as we continue our triple-digit growth in SaaS subscription revenues."
Mr. Reading's experience in the Software as a Service industry is one of the assets he brings to his new role on the Pica9 Board. As President and CEO of VoltDB, a big-data SaaS company, Bruce has presided over a more than 5-fold growth in the company’s revenues since taking over in 2012. Before joining VoltDB, Bruce held senior positions at Compuware (formerly NASDAQ:CPWR), Gomez, Inc. and Access International, among others.
