Bruce Reading
President & CEO

As president and CEO of VoltDB, Bruce Reading brings more than 27 years of experience building shareholder value in a variety of operating roles including sales, marketing, asset management and operations.

Before joining VoltDB, Bruce was senior vice president and general manager for Compuware Corporation (NASDAQ:CPWR), prior to which he spent six years as president, chief operating officer and senior vice president at Gomez, Inc., which was ultimately acquired by Compuware. Previously, he served in senior management capacities at Access International, Cayman Systems and Dictaphone Corporation.

In addition to serving as VoltDB’s fearless leader, Bruce is a dad (to his kids and his dog!), a philanthropist and a native Canadian. He grew up in a small northern Ontario town 20 minutes from the hometown of Bobby Orr (the greatest guy he knows) and has always loved hockey and fishing. He serves on the board of directors for Boston-based Containers 2 Clinics, a non-profit focused on delivering sustainable primary health care to women and children all over the globe.

Bruce’s favorite poem is “The Guy in the Glass” by Dale Wimbrow. Since the age of seventeen, he has read it just about every day. Bruce believes that great teams are made up of great people, and when you assemble the right people, anything is possible. For proof, you don’t have to look any further than VoltDB.
