Alex Pauncz

I'm a creative marketer & strategist passionate about technology, entrepreneurship and marketing. In the last 6 years, I've lead many growth & brand marketing initiatives for CData Software, helping the company scale 10x from a founder-led, bootstrapped startup through three funding rounds led by VC partners. Before joining CData, I cut my teeth as an SEO & copywriter in a B2B marketing agency and at an IT services firm.
