Walt Maguire to Lead Actian Pre-Sales Engineering By Rohit De Souza October 26, 2017 Walt Maguire has been a voracious consumer of science fiction novels from an early age, and now he loves getting hand-on experience with the technology of the future. He started his technology career taking apart clock radios to explore how they worked, and disassembling the family washing machine. Needless to say, his parents had mixed feelings about his curiosity, which turned to happiness once computers came along. Walt got to play with bits in a CPU, and mom & dad got to keep their washer functional. In the years since then, Walt has spent his career doing nearly everything that can be done with data. Today he leads the global pre-sales team for Actian, and plans to adopt a very hands-on approach to demonstrating Actian performance and features to show how they can solve data challenges in today’s business environment. In his spare time he channels his creative needs turning trees into furniture, and loves to travel. Please welcome Walt to Actian!
