AUTHORS Staff Reports (Repost from Nashville Post)
Nashville-based software as a service company Edgenet has added a vice president of product from a Boston competitor. Mikael Solomon has been named to the role at the local company that develops and distributes a product content management platform. He was previously director of product management at Salsify, where he was responsible for analytics and the company’s content grader product.
Previously, Solomon (pictured) founded Edgecase, an Austin-based discovery platform for retailers. He holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from Stanford University and a master’s in management from Wake Forest University. “It’s always a good sign when senior people from competitors move to your team,” Edgenet CEO Steve Proctor said in a release. “Mikael’s decision to join us is yet another proof point regarding Edgenet’s incredible team, smart products and unstoppable momentum. We look forward to continuing to attract top talent from throughout the industry to help grow Nashville’s technology industry base.”
Marlin Equity Partners, a California-based private equity firm, took a majority stake in Edgenet late last year for an undisclosed sum. Proctor and others had partnered with Nashville-based Resolute Capital Partners to purchase the product content software company out of bankruptcy in 2014.
