Noodle.ai Extends Rapid Growth with Strategic Executive Hires and New Headquarters

Gail Moody-Byrd, CMO, and Nick Yoo, CISO, enhance leadership team as
the company enters next phase of exponential growth

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Noodle.ai,
a leading provider of Enterprise AI® applications, announces
record growth in 2018 and two new additions to its executive team.

In 2018, Noodle.ai raised a $35 million Series B funding round led by
Dell Technologies Capital and previous investor TPG Growth. The funds
brought its fundraising total to $51 million, and will enable expansion
of the company’s suite
of applications
that focus on reducing waste in manufacturing &
supply chains around the world.

Over the past year, Noodle.ai has increased its headcount by more than
100 percent, and expanded presence to Pittsburgh, New York and
Washington, D.C. This month, the company moved into its new headquarters
at 115 Sansome St. in San Francisco to prepare for continued growth.

Gail Moody-Byrd has joined Noodle.ai as its CMO, having led marketing
activities for successive waves of emerging technology: mobile, social,
cloud, and now artificial intelligence. She most recently served as
Vice-President and Head of Web Marketing at SAP, where her team led the
development of the first SAP-branded social channels, which grew in
number from 5 to 1,200 social accounts globally and played a role in the
company’s own digital transformation. Prior to SAP, she served in
several leadership roles at Palm, Inc. during the emergence of mobile
computing for the enterprise, where she focused on creating value for
healthcare, field service and sales force automation.

Previously, she served as a consultant in the Retail Practice of
McKinsey & Company in New York and played key roles in Brand Management
and Demand Forecasting with Levi Strauss & Co. She holds an MBA from
Harvard Business School and a BA in Economics from Spelman College.

Further enhancing its leadership team, Nick Yoo has been appointed Chief
Information Security Officer to extend Noodle.ai’s state-of-the-art
product security. Bringing more than 20 years of IT experience to his
new role at Noodle.ai, he served as Chief Security Officer at BMC
Software, where he was responsible for product security. His previous
roles included Chief Security Architect at McKesson Corporation, leading
its global security architecture and strategic cybersecurity
initiatives, and VP of Software Engineering at Samsung SDS, among other
roles. He holds a BA in Business Administration, a Master’s in
Cybersecurity, and numerous professional certifications, such as CISM
and CISSP.

“As AI increasingly empowers organizations to reduce waste in every
aspect of their business, we are seeing a rising wave of demand for
Enterprise AI® solutions,” said Noodle.ai CEO Steve Pratt.
“We are thrilled to add Gail and Nick, who will each bring unique
elements to our leadership team as we enter a new stage of growth. All
of our momentum helps us better equip business users with data
science-driven tools, to ultimately move the world in a sustainable
direction.”

Throughout 2018, the company received significant recognition for its
vision and success, as it was named the top B2B and AI startup by LinkedIn,
the #1 startup in the US by Tech
Guru Daily
and a winner of Business Intelligence Group’s BIG
innovation Awards
.

About Noodle.ai

Noodle.ai applies advanced data science to industries at the core of the
global economy to create a world without waste. Legacy enterprise
software systems have fixed rules, have blinders, do not learn, and give
no sense of risks or opportunities. Noodle.ai’s applications focus on
areas of waste in factories & supply chains. Each application ingests
data from internal systems and Noodle.ai data cartridges. We then use
our supercomputing AI platform, The BEAST, to discover hidden patterns
in operations. Our applications help leaders reduce buffer sizes, be
more responsive, and increase flow to create less waste. Founded in
2016, Noodle.ai is led by executives previously with the top firms in
data science, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and management
consulting.
