Sure, it’s now a few days into February, but we still thought it would be worth taking a quick look back at who’s been coming to (and going from) major Boston tech companies. Here are the biggest Boston tech jobs changes that came across our radar last month.

• Founder and former CEO of Boston-based Apperian, Chuck Goldman, will now be the President of Hoyos Labs in Quincy, MA. Hoyos is a leader in mobile biometrics authentication— focusing on fraud solutions that eliminate our reliance on ATM cards, PINs, and tokens. Chuck’s most recent year and a half long stint was at Great Hill Partners as an Executive-in-Residence.

• Boston-based data storage firm Carbonite is loading up with new players. Norman Guadagno: SVP of Marketing. Christopher Doggett: SVP of Global Sales. Also, former IBMvet, Paul Mellinger, will be SVP of Carbonite’s EVault division, the $14M acquisition they announced in December. BBJ has the roundup.

• Boston serial entrepreneur Cheng Wu was CEO and a founder at ArrowPoint Communications, a networking equipment firm that was acquired by Cisco for $5.7B in 2000. Boston VCs who were involved in that deal call him the “$6 billion man.” He’s now working on a new startup, APL Software. APL announced a $5.2M funding round in October. Backers include Accomplice, led by Chris Lynch, who’s been involved in several of Wu’s companies, including ArrowPoint. APL is working on parallel computing tech. Trouble is (for Boston): APL is based in San Jose–and now, so is Wu. “For what we do, it is easier to find the talents in virtualization, container and etc.,” he told me. “It is a West Coast company, as much as I would like to root for Boston.”

• Looks like Dave Balter is moving on from Pluralsight, which bought his last company, Smarterer, in November of 2014. 13 months with the acquiring co. ain’t bad. Scottie got a jump on the news with a tweet. No word yet what Balter is up to. Collaborators Sarah Hodges ( and Michael Kowalchik (co-founder at Smarterer) appear to be staying put.

• Mobile marketing tech firm SessionM said today that Todd Donahue has joined as CFO as the company “prepares for rapid growth in 2016.” Donahue had previously been with companies including ErecruitLivewire Mobile and Aspen Technology over the past two decades.

• Boston’s own serial entrepreneur and MIT blackjack wizard, Yuchun Lee, will now attempt a new trick: Running two companies at once. (That’s fashionable right now.) Lee, who was a co-founder of Unica, is remaining at the helm of his new startup, Allego, while taking over the chief executive’s office at DC-based Clarabridge, where he’s served as chairman on behalf of General Catalyst Partners, which is an investor in both.

•Another exec has left their job at a publicly traded company for a smaller (and privately held) firm. We heard this morning that Thom Kenney has left his VP of global engineering job at LogMeIn to join Applause as the company’s CTO. Kenney has more than 20 years of tech industry experience, and his addition fortifies Applause “for the steep growth and market adoption our solutions are forecast to achieve,” according to CEO Doron Reuveni. It could also be a good move to bring on someone with public-company chops since Applause is eyeing an IPO down the road.

• Boston video adtech firm Pixability just brought aboard some firepower in the financial department, with the hiring of Nancy Lazaros as CFO. Lazaros has spent two decades as a CFO in the adtech space, including at Extreme Reach (the fast-growing Mass. company) and Third Screen Media (the Boston-based firm acquired by AOL). Looks like a nice pickup for Pixability, which last spring raised $18M for expansion, the company’s largest round to date.

• Judging by his 75,000 Twitter followers, I gather that Rapid7 chief research officer HD Moore is kind of a big deal in the cybersecurity world. Make that former chief research officer: Moore, who is based in Austin, wrote in a blog post for Rapid7 today that he’s leaving to launch a new VC firm (presumably in Austin). Moore has been with Rapid7 for six years and says the next move is “a natural evolution of my career in this industry.”

• Looks like HubSpot veteran Mike Volpe is taking a new board seat. Volpe’s joining the board at Attend, an event planning tech company founded in 2013. Word is, Attend is planning to announce some changes, soon.

• The newest executive at Paul English’s travel app startup, Lola, is Ellen Chisa, who is taking a hiatus from Harvard Business School to serve as VP of product there. As Olivia reports, Chisa has done previous stints at Bose and Microsoft and launched a startup of her own at one point, Alight Learning>>>Read more: Meet Ellen Chisa, the Newest VP at Paul English’s Lola

• Boston, meet your new local Uber GM, Chris Taylor. An Uber spokesperson confirmed the news, first reported by the BBJ, that the Harvard Business School grad is moving over from Uber Chicago to take the helm in Boston. Taylor earned an MBA from HBS in 2012 and his experience has included a seven-year stint with Boston Consulting Group.

Krista Pappas

• We have another personnel announcement from Paul English‘s human-powered travel tech startup Lolathe BBJ reported that Krista Pappas, a former exec at Microsoft’s Bing Travel, is joining the startup as the VP of its membership program. The startup was expected to detail its subscription-based membership program in a Medium post on Monday.

• We also just heard that Mobee, a Boston-based startup that provides crowdsourced retail intelligence, has hired Mike Grimes, formerly the SVP of digital retail solutions at Catalina, as its chief revenue officer. Grimes will lead the company’s go-to-market strategy, sales, and business development efforts. The startup said it plans to expand its staff by 50% this year and projects growth to more than quadruple.
