Cartegraph, a leader in high-performance government software and services, has announced the appointment of Josh Mallamud as chief executive officer. In this new role, Mallamud will continue to accelerate growth and drive the company’s strategic vision.
“After decades of working in the SaaS space, I know how rare it is to find a leader like Josh who has the vision and know-how to drive this innovative company well into the future,” said Cartegraph Chairman Charlie Cumbaa. “Civil servants are looking for a partner that is decidedly different, and I believe Josh will help Cartegraph build on its strong foundation to become the number one choice in the local government software marketspace.”
A seasoned SaaS executive, Mallamud brings nearly two decades of highly-relevant experience to the Cartegraph team. Most recently, he served as chief operating officer of CityBase, a Chicago-based government technology company, and as a senior vice president at DialogTech—playing a key role in the company’s transition into Martech and enterprise SaaS. Prior to DialogTech, Mallamud cofounded Jigocity, a Shanghai-based social commerce business, successfully scaling the organization to $20 million in revenue and nearly 200 employees just 15 months after launch.
Mallamud earned a J.D. from Northwestern University Law School, an MBA from the Kellogg Graduate School of Business and a B.A. in economics from Duke University. He was a corporate attorney at Munger, Tolles & Olson in Los Angeles, and a management consultant at Semler Brossy where he advised the boards of directors of BlackRock and Adobe. Currently, Mallamud serves on the board of directors at Sentic Technologies, is an advisory board member for Aclaimant and is vice chair of the board of directors for Public Media Company, a non-profit.
“With such a powerful product offering and strong reputation in the government operations management market, Cartegraph has the potential to grow and transform this industry,” said Mallamud. “I’m excited to join a team that is so fiercely committed to the success of our customers and look forward to capitalizing on the great opportunities that lie ahead.”
