Maana Expands Leadership Team and Announces New Silicon Valley Headquarters

MENLO PARK, Calif., January 29, 2019 — Maana, the pioneer of industrial digital knowledge technology, announced the relocation of its headquarters from Palo Alto to Sand Hill Road, Menlo Park, California. The new office will house the company’s expanding global marketing team and provide a facility to showcase its technology as global energy leaders travel to Silicon Valley seeking to be immersed in the latest innovations.

Late last year, the company hired seasoned Silicon Valley marketing executive, Julia Ochinero, as Vice President of Marketing, and appointed Suha Erdem, as Vice President of Customer Operations to further scale growth as energy companies adopt the company’s knowledge technology.

“Last year we hosted executives from twenty-six major oil and gas and industrial companies in our Palo Alto office,” said Maana Founder and CEO, Babur Ozden. “As major players in the energy and industrial sectors strengthen their relationships in Silicon Valley and our alliance with Microsoft and Accenture deepens, we needed a new headquarters representative of our growing market presence.”

Located at 2882 Sand Hill Road, Maana’s Silicon Valley office will focus on marketing and customer growth.

In response to the energy sector’s demand for the best technological innovations from the West Coast, last year, Maana extended its presence by opening new offices in major energy hubs, including Houston, London and Dhahran.
