10gen Hires Kamal Brar as Asia Pacific General Manager

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 07/29/13 -- 10gen, the MongoDB company, today announced the appointment of Kamal Brar as General Manager of the Asia Pacific (APAC) region. Formerly the Lead of MySQL's APAC division, Kamal will lead 10gen's expansion within APAC, with responsibilities including building a broad channel across the region. He will be based in Singapore.

Under his leadership and together with his global team, Kamal grew MySQL to over $25M USD in sales across Asia over a five-year period. Prior to MySQL, Kamal helped build start-up OuterBay Technologies, a provider of archiving software for enterprise applications and databases, which was acquired by Hewlett-Packard in 2006.

"Kamal's data management experience with MySQL and intimate knowledge of the market and strong commitment to customer success make him a valuable addition to the global 10gen team at this critical juncture of rapid growth," said Max Schireson, CEO at 10gen. "A natural leader who's beloved by his teams and passionate about winning, Kamal brings the right combination of experience and determination to 10gen. With Kamal at the helm, we are well positioned to accelerate our rapid growth as the leading NoSQL database provider in the APAC market."

Prior to his successful leadership role at MySQL and OuterBay Technologies, Kamal held various sales and consulting positions with Oracle in APAC, Japan, Australia and New Zealand. Previously, he managed ACS Network, Design and Support for Optus Internet, and led support delivery for the Australian Business Telephone Company (ABTC).

"There is amazing customer demand and a vast community of engineers in APAC attracted to MongoDB due to the developer productivity and ease of use it offers," said Kamal Brar, APAC General Manager at 10gen. "I'm thrilled to join 10gen to expand adoption of the leading NoSQL database that delivers what today's agile businesses need. I'm confident we will achieve success in this new market, as MongoDB continues to challenge the relational database model with undisputed flexibility, scalability and other benefits."

MongoDB is the open-source, document database popular among developers and IT professionals due to its agile and scalable approach. MongoDB provides a JSON data model with dynamic schemas, extensive driver support, auto-sharding, built-in replication and high availability, full and flexible index support, rich queries, aggregation, in-place updates and GridFS for large file storage.

Common use cases include operational and analytical big data, content management and delivery, mobile and social infrastructure, user data management and data hub.
