Today, we are announcing that Albert Garcia recently joined KrakenD as Director of Business Development and member of the Board.

In his role, he will identify and develop new business opportunities to help expand even more the presence of KrakenD. Garcia will spearhead new markets and emerging trends, sales, and client relationship management, to name a few.

Having worked previously with him for more than 15 years, we know that Garcia is the right person at the right time for KrakenD. His powerful entrepreneurial mindset, passion, and hunger for greatness will only make KrakenD grow stronger.

“The last 11 years, I’ve been running my own company as a CTO. I was the person in charge of product and technology teams at Uvinum (now Drinks&Co), a wine & spirits marketplace that I co-founded in 2009 and acquired by Pernod Ricard in 2018.

For the past five years, I’ve been following closely what the KrakenD team had come through: building the most performant API Gateway available in the market, a massive community of developers and contributors, and reaching huge adoption -more than 1M servers running KrakenD around the world last month-.

Apart from those impressive figures, I had the opportunity to work for years with one of the founders on several projects. So, when they proposed me to join them, the decision was straightforward to make.”
