Sigma Computing appoints Orla Clifford as VP of Operations


Sigma Computing has announced the appointment of its first-ever vice president of Operations on Monday.

Orla Clifford will take on the role of VP of Operations and lean on her vast experience in business operations to drive growth and scale to further support Sigma's growing customer base. Clifford will also lead business operations and strategic planning at Sigma Computing.

Clifford joins Sigma Computing after serving as vice president of Pricing and Operations at Druva. During Clifford’s tenure at Druva, the company exceeded $100 million in annual recurring revenue and achieved multiple milestones attributed to the company’s rapid growth under Clifford.

Before her time at Druva, Clifford served as chief of staff and vice president of Business Operations at Veritas Technologies.

“Balancing product innovation against the needs of a growing and diverse set of use cases makes operations and scalability top priorities for Sigma right now. Orla’s track record of driving results and increasing revenue with an eye to the customer experience will accelerate our ability to meet both internal and customer goals. We are so pleased to have Orla join the team,” said Sigma Computing CEO Mike Palmer.

Clifford added: “Sigma is poised to upend the way companies approach business intelligence, helping them capitalize on all the benefits the cloud has to offer and transform business intelligence into a community-driven process where everyone is able to contribute their unique talents and knowledge to uncover new insights that improve the business.

“I am excited to be able to apply my own expertise at Sigma during this stage of growth and help the company optimize operations and improve the customer experience,” she continued.

Sigma Computing’s data analytics and business intelligence solution is designed to run natively within cloud data warehouses. To date, Sigma Computing has raised $58 million in venture capital funding and was included on the CNBC 2019 Upstart 100 List.

The company’s product was also awarded the 2020 DEVIES Award for Best Innovation in Enterprise Solutions.
