SANTA CRUZ, Calif. Encirq Corp., a provider of data management solutions for embedded systems, has appointed software veteran Deborah Goslin as its CEO. Goslin succeeds founder Mark Vogel, who will continue as a strategic advisor and member of Encirq's board of directors.
Encirq is the provider of DeviceSQL, a software development framework for designing and implementing the data management portions of device software applications. It can help users build a database, a local search engine, or other functions for manipulating, processing and managing data. Encirq announced a major upgrade to the product in September 2006, and rolled out a free downloadable version in January 2007.
Goslin has over 25 years of experience in high technology and data management. She has held executive positions with Adaptive Planning, NetBrowser Communications, Platinum Technology, Comdisco, Ingres, Metaphor, and Shared Medical Systems.
"My priorities for Encirq focus on three key areas for accelerating our growth," Goslin said. "We will further expand our awareness campaigns, especially in the Asia-Pacific region; sharpen our target market focus and increase the velocity of design wins in these markets; and strengthen and develop additional strategic partnerships with other embedded technology leaders to speed the adoption of DeviceSQL as the industry standard for managing device data."
"Deb is an experienced, talented and visionary leader who is the perfect person to accelerate the company's growth," Vogel said in a statement. "She has the worldwide sales, marketing and business development background to solidify and advance our leadership position in the market for more efficient device-optimized data management solutions."
