AUSTIN, TX – September 12, 2022 – Live Earth, a global leader in streaming analytics software, announced today the appointment of Jim Barker as their new Vice President of Sales & Marketing following last week’s announcement of their $10 million funding round.
Jim joins Live Earth with over 20 years of sales and marketing leadership experience in the technology space. “Live Earth has done a phenomenal job in solving large enterprises’ needs for real-time data insights to help them make better decisions faster,” stated Jim. “Making data driven decisions has become commonplace for organizations, and yet they continue to struggle with real-time actionable insights to make them in the moment, instead of studying data from traditional BI tools after the fact. Live Earth helps solve this issue, and I’m excited to be able to help scale our platform and team.”
