His team-building capabilities, sales acumen, and impeccable customer experience-focused mindset will be crucial in scaling our operations to tap into the growing demand for full-stack observability solutions," Goodman says.

A computer science graduate with a strong pedigree in data management, Leonidas started his career as a developer before moving to business intelligence as a pre-sales engineer. He later became a solutions architect before moving into a successful career in sales.
