East Brunswick, NJ, April 21, 2016

OpenSCG, a leading provider of subscriptions and services for PostgreSQL, announced today that Jan Wieck has joined its team of top-tier PostgreSQL talent as Senior Database Architect. Wieck is a long time contributor to the PostgreSQL Global Development Group, and has authored many key Postgres technologies over the years, including Stored Procedures (PL/pgSQL), Foreign Keys, TOAST (unlimited row size) and the Slony Replication System. He has also focused for years on stabilization and performance enhancements for PostgreSQL and related data technologies.

“We are very excited that Jan has joined us,” said Denis Lussier, CEO of OpenSCG. “My original vision for Oracle compatibility was based in large part on Jan’s elegant stored procedure design. Having him as a key part of the OpenSCG team will enable us to move faster, and further enhance our strategic plans for the future.” As part of his new responsibilities, Wieck is expected to contribute to BigSQL, a new PostgreSQL Distribution that OpenSCG is sponsoring.

“I was thrilled to join OpenSCG,” said Wieck. “I have known and respected the management team for over a decade, and was looking for a balance between new product development and working closely with customers on data-driven business problems. My new role offers the chance to do both.”
