Mountain View, Calif., Aug. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Couchbase, Inc., creator of the world’s first Engagement Database, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named CEO Matt Cain to its 2018 list of Top 100 Executives, specifically among the Top 25 Innovators. This annual list recognizes leaders from the technology industry who have played an integral role in shaping today’s IT channel, whether by driving huge cultural shifts, creating rich new opportunities or forging innovative routes to success.


As President and CEO, Cain plays an integral role in driving strong growth and momentum for Couchbase.

CRN’s 2018 Top 100 Executives embody these qualities. They are change agents who deliver unwavering guidance to their companies, always asking where are we headed and not being afraid to take the necessary steps to get there.”
