MongoDB Hires New CFO

MongoDB, a NoSQL database software company, announced Michael Gordon as its Chief Financial Officer this morning.  Gordon replaces previous CFO Sydney Carey, who left MongoDB in February for venture-backed security company Zscaler.  Mr. Gordan joins MongoDB from Yodle, a venture-backed online marketing company for local businesses that filed for an IPO in July 2014 but has yet to go public. He was both the chief operating officer and chief financial officer and said he wasn’t looking to leave.

MongoDB raised $80m last December at a rumored $1.6bn valuation.  Investors in the company include Goldman Sachs, Altimeter Capital, NEA, Sequoia and T. Rowe Price Associates.

MongoDB is a member of the Triton Research IPO Watchlist, a continuously updating database of companies we expect to either IPO or be acquired.  The current IPO Watchlist is comprised of 106 companies organized by investment theme
