Leading AI Company Dataminr Appoints Former Cision Executive Jason Edelboim as Chief Commercial Officer
Edelboim joins Dataminr from Cision, a leading global provider of software and services to public relations and marketing communications professionals, where he last held the role of President, Americas. At Cision, Edelboim led sales, customer experience and operations for the U.S., Canada and Latin America, as well as Cision’s Global Product organization, and was responsible for developing and executing the company’s go-to-market strategy to drive revenue growth and profitability.
Dataminr, a recognized leader in AI and Machine Learning technology, raised $392.6M in July of 2018 at a $1.6Bvaluation and is rapidly growing its commercial businesses and expanding its global footprint. Edelboim joins the company to lead and further accelerate these efforts as Dataminr scales to meet the global demand for its solutions.
“Professionals across numerous commercial markets need Dataminr more than ever to keep up with an increasingly real-time world,” said Ted Bailey, Founder & CEO. “We are thrilled to welcome Jason, who brings a wealth of operational expertise in go-to-market strategy and execution, and a stellar track record of selling real-time information products across customer segments and regions — at scale.”
“I am excited to join Dataminr during this critical period in its evolution,” said Edelboim. “I’m looking forward to working closely with Ted and the broader executive team to develop and implement new strategies that further accelerate Dataminr’s already impressive growth trajectory.”
Under Edelboim’s leadership, Cision significantly improved revenue and EBITDA performance in the U.S. and Canada, more than doubled the historical growth rate of its distribution business, and launched the industry-leading Cision Comms Cloud SaaS solution. During his tenure as President, Cision also completed six acquisitions and completed an IPO on the NYSE in 2017.
Prior to Cision, Edelboim held leadership roles at PR Newswire and Bloomberg. Edelboim holds a Master of Business Administration from the Leonard N. Stern School of Business at New York University and a Bachelor of Arts with honors from Columbia University. He joins Dataminr on January 22, 2019.
