Paul Matker — Chief Executive Officer
Paul has spent over 20 years in high tech selling and sales management, helping build revenue and market share for companies like Click Commerce, United Messaging, PLATINUM technology, Inc., Computer Associates, and Sprint Paranet. Paul’s efforts ultimately contributed to these companies being sought after and merged with larger conglomerates. Paul worked his magic at Endeca Technologies, helping to build the foundation at Endeca in the early years and contributed to its growth of over $120 million in revenues by securing deals at marquee companies like Hallmark, Sigma Aldrich, Cabela's, and Walgreens. This solid growth is what ultimately helped Endeca attract Oracle as a suitor, resulting in Oracle’s recent purchase of Endeca for $1.2 Billion dollars. With Endeca’s blessing, Paul left in late 2005 to follow his entrepreneurial spirit and started Thanx Media (Endeca’s Number One Reseller and exclusive SaaS provider). Thanx Media, in one of the toughest economies, has grown to over 200 customers and $25M in revenues in under 6 years. Because of his passion to serve the customer and his belief that data is the key element to improve the shopping experience, Thanx Media is positioned to grow even faster over the next decade.
