Enterprise software veteran to lead Tamr’s engineering team to meet
growing demand for company’s data unification solutions

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Tamr Inc., the leader in enterprise data unification, has announced
today it has hired Mahesh Pai, former Senior Vice President of
Technology with Nielsen Corporation, as its new Head of Engineering. In
his new role, Pai will lead the growing engineering team behind Tamr’s
enterprise data unification software system, reporting directly to the
company’s co-founder and CEO, Andy Palmer.

Pai is well-versed in the challenges of building enterprise-scale,
data-centric products that delight customers and fuel rapid growth in
emerging technology markets. Most recently at Nielsen, he served as
Senior VP of Technology where he led the development and launch of the
Nielsen Connected System — a retail big data Software-as-a-Service and
Data-as-a-Service offering. Pai joined Nielsen via the 2014 acquisition
of Affinnova, where he was the VP of Engineering. During his four years

I have seen firsthand how the challenges of data variety make it
virtually impossible for large enterprises to unlock the insights they

stores, said Pai. “The business-as-usual approach of trying to construct
a system of rules to unify this data is a fool’s errand. Tamr’s
differentiated approach to tackling this challenge with a machine
learning-powered system that makes it easy to build a new kind of
model-based data pipelines is powerful and disruptive. The company’s
strong results prove that the market demand is high, and I look forward
to helping scale Tamr to new heights.”
