Bob Moul Named CEO of Cloudamize


It’s the third time he’s been CEO of a Philly-area tech company.

It’s been a roller-coaster year for Bob Moul. This summer, he was forced to sell Artisan Mobile, his Old City-based startup that helped apps engage and monetize users through personalized marketing solutions. Even with customers like Nike, CVS and the History Channel, the company just wasn’t growing fast enough and sold to Tune, a Seattle-based third-party measurement company focused on acquiring app users.

It was quite a blow for Philly’s burgeoning startup scene and one of its most prominent voices. But as they say in the tech world, failure is a good thing that helps you learn valuable lessons.

So he grew a beard, did some traveling and planned his next move. Today a clean-shaven Moul revealed what he’ll do next — become CEO of Cloudamize, a Center City-based analytics firm that helps businesses make data-driven cloud infrastructure decisions. It counts MissionOG, Dreamit Ventures and Gabriel Investments as investors.

It’s the third time Mould will be CEO of a Philly-area tech startup. (The other was Boomi, a software firm turned cloud computing company that sold to Dell in November 2010.) He was also president of Systems Computer Technology (SCT), a $300 million global education solutions business that was acquired by Sungard for $650 million.

He seems pumped about the new gig.

“I love the cloud space and clearly we’ve reached a tipping point for the mainstream adoption of cloud computing,” said Moul in a statement. “The Cloudamize value proposition could not be more clear: We want to help our customers get the best possible performance for the lowest possible cost, so they can realize the full potential of the cloud. I look forward to working with all of our customers and partners to achieve that goal.”
