  • O’Neil has spent nearly the last eight years at EDB, most recently as the Senior Vice President of HR, building EDB into the organization it is today.

  • De Vries has been a transformative force for EDB’s product development organization over the past two and a half years, as the Senior Vice President of Product Development. He has led impactful changes to EDB’s technical capabilities, resulting in accelerated growth, and continues to push the boundaries of what is possible within EDB’s portfolio, helping to establish EDB as a first-class technology leader.

 “Success starts with leadership,” said EDB president and CEO, Ed Boyajian. “The fact that we’ve had 52 consecutive quarters of growth, and a majority investment from Bain Capital is no accident. Leslie and Jozef have been key contributors towards that, and will play even greater roles in driving the company forward. As we look to our next phase of growth, I look forward to working with Chandler to ensure that our products always meet the needs of our enterprise customers.” 

EDB is the leading software and services provider enabling enterprises to accelerate their digitalization and modernize their database infrastructures with Postgres. The company’s strong position in Postgres, and the database market overall, is reflected in its long-term success of 52 quarters of consecutive ARR growth. Following last year’s majority growth investment from Bain Capital Private Equity, which helped fuel innovations in EDB’s Postgres and Cloud offerings, the expansion of EDB’s talented leadership team is another step to accelerating growth for the company.
