According to a statement from the firm, the addition of Whelchel will prepare the company for the “next stage of growth.”
“We are thrilled to welcome Evan to the senior leadership of Allstacks and are excited to leverage his business experience as we continue to grow,” said Hersh Tapadia, the CEO of Allstacks, in a statement. “As the value stream intelligence category matures, we have a tremendous opportunity to increase our market presence.”
In October 2022, the company closed a $12.3 million Series A fundraising round with plans to add workers to its team. That now includes Whelchel, a senior sales leader with more than two decades of experience.
At that time, the company said that the new capital infusion would enable it to pursue go-to-market strategies for a product that provides what a statement described as “an innovative new approach to how software organizations can analyze large amounts of data to mitigate risk in engineering projects.”
The firm also said it would hire new workers, using proceeds from the fundraising process.
In the new role, Whelchel will be tasked with “unifying the go-to-market strategy with a focus on creating a great customer experience in every aspect of partnering with Allstacks,” the company described in a statement.
Whelchel was previously the vice president of marketing at Tonkean and held senior sales and marketing positions at Ansible, Cypress.io, GitLab, and RedHat.
The company raised $4.7 million in 2019 in a round that the company described at the time as its seed funding round. Allstacks won an NC IDEA SEED Grant in 2016 and had previously raised funding prior to the 2019 seed round.
The company launched a publicly available benchmarking platform in 2021 at no charge to users.
