Issaquah database company McObject today announced another big international move, following a distribution deal in India that it announced in June.
The company’s now opening a Beijing development office, headed by a software executive who recently sold a company to IBM.
McObject’s embedded system databases are already doing pretty well in China with customers such as Dalian Commodity Exchange, Bank of China and major utilities.
Adding the Beijing team “highlights our increased focus on this market, and adds critical mass and expertise to accelerate growth,” Chief Operating Officer Chris Mureen said in the announcement.
Heading the new office is Husen Tu, who was general manager Siemens Fujitsu in China before running Solid Information Technology, an embedded database developer sold to IBM earlier this year. He’s leading two other former Solid employees in the McObject office.
