Aurimas Jacikevicius

As Head of Sales at Altinity, think of Aurimas as your experienced guide to mastering ClickHouse. He brings over a decade of high-level, multinational-corporation experience to his role. Plus, he has the can-do, pragmatic spirit you’d expect from someone who’s been a General Manager and Board Member at smaller startups. He gets things done. And is a fierce advocate for the interests of our customers.

Head of Sales

Valery Tkachenko

Valery is the get-anything-and-everything-done person at Altinity. You may call that “Administration.” We call it “working wonders.” We need extra closet space to account for all the hats she wears: HR, Accounts Payable and Receivable, Budgeting and Financial Management, Procurement, and on and on. She has the spirit and work ethic of an entrepreneur. Which makes sense given that she once owned and managed a small online business. And prior to that she worked for many years in software development.

Head of Administration

Chiara Toselli

Chiara is Head of Marketing at Altinity. She oversees all aspects of marketing strategy, planning, execution, and measurement. She is responsible for driving growth, brand awareness, customer loyalty, and innovation across all channels and markets.

Head of Marketing

Peter Zaitsev

Peter Zaitsev co-founded Percona and assumed the role of CEO in 2006. As one of the foremost experts on MySQL strategy and optimization, Peter leveraged both his technical vision and entrepreneurial skills to grow Percona from a two-person shop to one of the most respected open source companies in the business. Peter was an early employee at MySQL AB, eventually leading the company’s High-Performance Group. A serial entrepreneur, Peter co-founded his first startup while attending Moscow State University where he majored in Computer Science.
