Charlotte, NC (September 22nd, 2016) – Fuzzy Logix, a leader in high performance analytics for big data, today announced that it has augmented its board of directors with three experienced industry leaders from diverse backgrounds.

As the founder of Cognizant Technology Solutions in 1993, Kumar Mahadeva was the driving force behind one of the fastest-growing technology services companies in the world. Cognizant is now a Fortune 500 company with a market cap of over $35 billion. Prior to establishing Cognizant, Kumar was Chairman of Dun & Bradstreet India and China, and also worked at AT&T, McKinsey and Company and the British Broadcasting Corporation. He noted: “Fuzzy Logix has a unique value proposition, a blue chip client base and world class talent.. They are on track to grow rapidly in an environment where data growth is outpacing compute capacity. I am excited to be part of this journey with them. .”
Dr. Jeff Evenson is the Chief Strategy Officer at Corning, where he oversees their corporate strategy, corporate communications, and advanced analytics. A graduate of MIT and post graduate from Harvard, he spent a good part of his early career as a partner at McKinsey & Company, where he led technology and market assessments for early-stage technologies. He remarked: “Fuzzy Logix is ahead of the curve in what it has managed to achieve in terms of analytics solutions for certain verticals. The applicability of its solution set is bound to expand to other industries.It is my pleasure to be part of this growth phase, and help Fuzzy Logix develop repeatable, successful patterns of software delivery.”
As the Senior VP of corporate and business development for Akamai, and with previous executive leadership roles at Intel, BMC Software, and Symantec, Dr. Ken Berryman brings over 20 years of software industry experience to the board. “Fuzzy Logix is an exciting software company with deep skills in big data analytics,” he commented, “There are multiple growth vectors to be exploited here as Fuzzy Logix helps accelerate time to decisions for its customers. Having a strong breadth of experience on the Board will help the company prioritize the best opportunities for growth.”
In November 2015, Fuzzy Logix raised $5.5m from New Science Ventures to expand its sales and marketing operations as it entered a steep growth phase. “I am thrilled to have Jeff, Ken and Kumar join this board,” explained Dr. Mohindra, Chairman of the Board. “Each one of them brings invaluable expertise and operational experience that Fuzzy Logix will need in the years to come. I welcome all of them and I am truly glad they’ve accepted the challenge of teaming up to support this phase of the company’s growth.”
