San Diego, CA (May 8, 2013) — Tealium, the leader in enterprise tag management, today announced that it has appointed Brian Blond as Chief Revenue Officer (CRO) to help accelerate the company’s global growth strategy. In this role, Blond will oversee all direct and indirect distribution channels.
Blond joins Tealium following two high profile successes in the infrastructure and marketing solutions sectors. Prior to Tealium, Blond served as the CRO of Vitrue, a social marketing platform provider, where he was instrumental in scaling distribution to achieve impressive revenue expansion, leading to a strategic acquisition by Oracle in 2012. Before Vitrue, Blond held positions at Moxie Software as Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales during an intense growth period, and as Sales Director of BladeLogic, where his efforts contributed to the company’s successful IPO.
At Tealium, Blond will leverage his more than 15 years of strategic business development and sales experience in the software technology arena to work closely with a highly skilled sales team, and to expand that team into new territories globally.
“This is an incredibly exciting time for Tealium,” Blond said. “I’m very proud to be with an organization on the forefront of developing the most user-centric and beneficial solutions developed in digital marketing in more than a decade. I see Tealium as the clear market leader — a place where digital marketers can go to be successful.”

He shares our philosophy of being customer-focused at the core, and shares our vision of building a platform that will substantially enhance the ROI that digital marketers receive from the solutions they are currently using, while opening up new possibilities for utilizing the massive amounts of data created across these systems.”
Tealium experienced tremendous growth in the first quarter of 2013, with record revenue, sales bookings, and enterprise customer additions.

Tealium also received $15.6M in Series C Financing from Tenaya Capital, Battery Ventures and Presidio Ventures.
