Tampa, FL, December 17, 2021 – MANTA today announced the appointment of Dan Fougere, Managing Director at Shore Drive Capital, to the MANTA Board of Directors. Fougere will support MANTA’s continued growth in the U.S. with his sales expertise.

“We’re excited to have Dan join MANTA board of directors,” said Tomas Kratky, founder and CEO of MANTA. “He brings a wealth of experience in business growth and sales strategy along with deep expertise in enterprise software in particular. His counsel will be an invaluable asset as we seek to accelerate MANTA’s growth in the coming year.”

Fougere is a software veteran with over 20 years of experience at both public and pre-IPO software companies. Most recently, he served as Chief Revenue Officer at Datadog, a solution for monitoring applications in the cloud that aims to bring all IT systems, applications, and services into one place for end users. He oversaw the creation of the enterprise sales team, which helped grow annual revenue from $50 million when he joined to over $1 billion. Before Datadog, Fougere had Global and Americas responsibilities at Medallia, the leading Customer Experience Management company. In his five years at Medallia, he helped design and execute a go-to-market approach that increased annual revenue by nearly 10 times and grew the sales organization from seven people to three hundred. Before Medallia, Fougere held leadership positions at BMC, BladeLogic and Actuate. He holds a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

Mr. Fougere joins a list of experienced investors and veterans of the B2B technology and enterprise IT industry in MANTA’s board of directors, such as Alex Ferrara, Vladislav Jez, and Markus Grundmann.

“I’m delighted to be joining MANTA’s board,” Dan Fougere said. “It’s an exciting challenge and opportunity to help a young company such as MANTA, with such potential and deep enterprise tech expertise already on board, to grow its footprint in a market that has huge demand for the clarity and benefits its innovative lineage platform provides. I’m excited to support the team and offer my insights into the sales process from my own experience in the enterprise software space.”
