“I’m joining Airbyte at a pivotal time in its next growth phase,” said Newbert. “Revenues are growing at a 10x pace as Airbyte’s differentiated open approach to data movement has proven to be an effective market disruptor, especially with the growing need for data to fuel AI models. Now, users are able to take advantage of hundreds of Airbyte data connectors as the standard for data movement.”

With a background in human resources, recruiting and talent management, Olney joins the growing Airbyte company with over a decade of experience building high-performing teams and fostering a culture of inclusivity and innovation. Her expertise in employee development and engagement will play a crucial role in nurturing Airbyte’s diverse and talented workforce as the company continues to scale.

“Ally’s passion for driving organizational excellence will be instrumental in accelerating our growth and advancing our mission to empower businesses with accessible data integration solutions,” said Tricot. “Her background in organizational psychology and desire to help others succeed and continue to grow will help us as we continue to innovate and expand our footprint in the market.”

“My commitment to creating an inclusive and empowering workplace culture resonates deeply with Airbyte’s values,” said Olney. “People are at the heart of every successful organization, and I am eager to work alongside our exceptional team to cultivate a culture where every individual can thrive and make a meaningful impact.”
