Reveal Mobile, a leading innovator in location intelligence, today announced the appointment of seasoned business executive Michael Benedict to its management team as Chief Revenue Officer. The company also announced the promotion of former Vice President of Marketing Matthew Davis to Chief Marketing Officer.
Benedict brings a broad range of relevant business experience to the company, including managing business operations, leading sales teams and overseeing product development for enterprises. He has also been instrumental in launching multiple enterprise-funded new ventures, especially those in the data industry.
The Raleigh, N.C. executive spent the past 16 years at Progress Software, a $500-million global software company, eventually serving as president, data connectivity and integration and then completing his tenure as Chief Product Officer. Benedict managed the company’s entire portfolio and six business units involving software-as-a-service (SaaS) and on-premise application development and deployment, enterprise integration, data analytics and more.
Previously, Benedict served as director, product management and product marketing for Engage Technologies, an online retail solutions provider, and as product manager for DataDirect Technologies, later acquired by Progress Software.
Benedict holds a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from State University of New York and an MBA from Kenan Flagler Business School, University of North Carolina.
“I’m a data geek at heart and see tremendous growth opportunities for Reveal Mobile in the mobile location data space,” Benedict said. “I’m looking forward to working with the management team to help ensure the company is prepared to scale quickly and build upon its remarkable initial success.”
“Benedict is a well-regarded business executive who possesses the experience and maturity to help take our company to the next level,” said Brian Handly, CEO of Reveal Mobile. “He is a proven visionary in the data field who will create exciting and profitable new business ventures and partnerships for us.”
Co-founding Reveal Mobile in 2012, Davis has been instrumental in establishing the company’s presence in the market. His leadership and ability to continue growing in tandem with the company led to his new appointment as Chief Marketing Officer. His career spans over two decades of enterprise sales, marketing and product development, often for mobile-focused startups.
Davis has a dual bachelor’s degree in Spanish and International Studies from the University of North Carolina and a master’s degree from the Poole College of Management at North Carolina State University.
“Davis has been instrumental in the phenomenal growth that we have achieved since our inception and he is a key member of the executive team,” said Handly. “This promotion is well-deserved, and we are looking forward to continued growth under his leadership.”
