Woburn, MA --Inmagic today announced Ron Matros has joined the company as its new President and Chief Executive Officer. In his new role, Matros will lead all key facets of the business, including engineering, services, finance, sales, marketing, and new business development. He also joins Inmagic’s Board of Directors.
"I am honored and excited to be joining the Inmagic team at one of the most historic times in the company’s history," said Ron Matros, President and CEO of Inmagic. "The company has an outstanding reputation in the industry, with a diverse and loyal customer base. The market reaction to Social Knowledge Networks has been unprecedented, and I’m looking forward to working with Inmagic’s employees, customers, and partners to drive growth and value throughout the Inmagic network."
Matros joins Inmagic from MetaCarta, Inc., Cambridge, Mass., where he was President and CEO. There, he successfully raised two rounds of venture capital funding, which were used primarily for operations and market expansion, resulting in significant sales growth during his tenure.
Before that, Matros served as the President and CEO of iConverse, Inc., Waltham, Mass., where he was responsible for building the U.S. sales and marketing organization, and raising capital. The company successfully raised funding during unfavorable market conditions, and was eventually acquired by a complementary partner, InfoClarus. Earlier, Matros served as President of OpenMarket, Inc. and FutureTense, Inc., where he successfully managed each company individually, as well as the role of CEO after the companies merged.
"The market response to Inmagic’s Social Knowledge Management strategy has been exceptional with rapid adoption among customers and the market at large," said Michael Balmuth, General Partner at Edison Venture Fund and member of the Inmagic Board of Directors. "Ron Matros brings the expertise required to lead the company through its next phase of rapid growth and development. Ron has an impressive track record in building successful companies and a solid base of operating experience critical to the company’s long-term success. In welcoming Ron, I’d also like to thank Paul Puzzanghera, whose outstanding leadership has positioned the company well for continued growth and market expansion."
Matros replaces former President and CEO Paul Puzzanghera, who led the company since 2006. Matros holds a master’s degree in business administration from Northeastern University.
