Adam Machanic joins Pythian to lead global SQL Server Practice

Posted in: Technical Track

I am delighted to make the announcement of a major strategic hire.

As of this month, Adam Machanic has been hired to lead Pythian’s global SQL Server practice and will be working out of our office in Central Square in Boston, Massachussets. Adam is in my opinion as close as it comes to a resource in the Microsoft SQL Server space that has the personality, track record and respect that Tom Kyte has in the Oracle space. Speaking as someone who is a huge fan of Tom Kyte’s, believe me that is saying a lot.

He is the co-author of several books on most SQL Server Professionals’ bookshelves, including Inside SQL Server 2005: Query Tuning and Optimization from Microsoft Press, Expert SQL Server 2005 Development from Apress and Pro SQL Server 2005 from Apress. (Hey Adam, that last one only got four stars on whereas the other two are well into five star territory – what’s up with that!?)

He is also a prolific blogger and presenter, a Microsoft SQL Server MVP, a Log Buffer alumnus, and generally a great person to be working with.

Seriously, check out this Microsoft MVP profile for a sense of why I’m so happy and excited to be working with Adam.

Congratulations Adam, and welcome!

For those of you who are curious, Pythian’s SQL Server practice was launched in 2005 and serves almost 20 of our 100 or so customers. We have some ambitious goals in place for Adam to double that practice within a year.
