Eric Forseter, formerly vice president of North America sales and federal sector at Pindrop Security, has joined DataRobot as general manager of public sector.
He will lead a team of data scientists and sales and marketing personnel at DataRobot’s office in Tysons, Va., to help government clients adopt automated machine learning platforms in operations and maximize their investments, the company said Wednesday.
Jeremy Achin, CEO and co-founder of DataRobot, said Forseter’s two decades of experience leading public sector initiatives for software firms would help build up DataRobot’s presence in the government marketplace.
“We’re confident that his experience and industry expertise will play a critical role in helping every government agency apply automated machine learning to their operations and, as a result, improve productivity by at least tenfold,” Achin added.
Prior to Pindrop, Forseter served as executive director of federal sales at NetIQ. He also held sales leadership roles at Starbase, Entevo and other technology firms.
