I’m very pleased to welcome Mike Hrabe to 8thBridge as Chief Revenue Officer. Mike now leads all of the 8thBridge client facing functions including Client Success, Sales, and Marketing.
Mike comes to 8thBridge from Quantum Retail where he was a co-founder and the VP of Sales & Marketing. Quantum Retail is a successful Big Data software play in the retail industry. Retailers like Guitar Center, The Children’s Place, Marks and Spencer, and Nordstrom use Quantum Retail’s predictive analytics capabilities to optimize their supply chains.
Mike’s main job at 8thBridge is to scale up our ability to help more and more brands monetize social through our social commerce platform, Graphite. Mike brings some serious entrepreneurial street cred and field discipline to the 8thBridge team and he will be a strong client advocate within the company.
We’re also excited to have Mike on the team given our growing focus on helping brands take advantage of the BIG social data insight Graphite produces.
Mike has a solid track record of helping brands leverage Big Data solutions given his past experience at Quantum Retail and also Retek (now Oracle Retail). In fact, Mike has previously partnered with our Chief Scientist, Linda Whitaker at both Quantum Retail and Retek where Linda was leading the retail science teams.
Welcome to the 8thBridge team Mike!
