I am super excited to share that Miguel Alvarado joins Lumiata today as our Chief Technology Officer. Miguel brings more than two decades of experience building and scaling data platforms, and analytics products in enterprise and consumer segments. Most recently, Miguel was VP, Engineering, Data and Analytics at Vevo. His career spans engineering leadership roles at Intel, Verizon, Brightcove and WebMD.
As CTO, Miguel will be responsible for “all things technology” at Lumiata –– Engineering, Data Science and Infrastructure. With adoption of Lumiata Health Analytics accelerating, our technology stack and infrastructure must scale to ensure our customers continue to rely on Lumiata products for their critical operations.
As I got to know Miguel these past few weeks, his two leadership principles stood out for me. One, he is passionate about building high-performance and motivated teams. Two, he believes we must build technology that is inspired by what our customers want (not the other way around). These core principles will guide us as we build and scale enterprise-grade healthcare products and infrastructure to serve our customers.
Leaders have a foundational role to play in both creating products, as well as nurturing a company’s values and culture. I look forward to partnering with Miguel in building a company we’re proud of, and one that our customers love to work with.
