Critical Event Management Provider Kinetic Global Adds Technology Heavyweight to Executive Team

Jay Peterson is one of the most well-respected and experienced software technologists in the Chicago-land area.

In his previous roles, Peterson was recognized by his superiors and peers for delivering architectures that are scalable, testable, maintainable, measurable, and most importantly stable and resistant to external factors.

Peter Cahill, CEO of Kinetic Global, said, “adding Peterson to the Kinetic executive team underscores our investment in leadership and continued commitment to innovation. Peterson is a force multiplier in both technology leadership and business processes. We have unprecedented growth. Clients are aggressively adopting our platform in favor of competition Everbridge, OnSolve, and Dataminr. We are operating in a favorable client environment, but we don’t rest on our laurels. We must keep innovating and outperforming for our clients – our clients have come to expect that from us.  To continue this trajectory, we chose a technology leader with operational and product expertise.”

Mr. Peterson boasts a 28-year track record of successful innovation and leadership in the software industry with a particular passion for machine learning, microservices, and service-oriented architectures. He is an innovative leader that blends together the technical and strategic vision to meet the demands of the business.

Before joining the Kinetic Global executive team, Mr. Peterson was the primary architect of the myQ platform at Chamberlain, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Duchossois Group. Mr. Peterson led the team from inception to scale and helped build the technology and engineering team. He led the company through launching the successful IoT platform, which included a partnership with Amazon (7 million users, 12-million devices, sending 10+ million daily notifications).

Peterson states, “Kinetic Global is already highly scalable with robust capabilities. A 12-year history with high customer retention puts us in a great position to build from. I’m here to accelerate processes and take Critical Event Management to the next level.”
