Despite being a slow month in funding news, February was a busy time for executive changes in the Colorado tech community. At least six companies made key leadership hires, ranging from the C-suite to regional management.
We took a look at those new leaders and the efforts they'll be heading in their new roles.
Data science and analytics company Alteryx announced this month that Greg Davoll joined its team as vice president of product marketing.

He will lead the company's growing Colorado-based product marketing team and will oversee go-to-market planning and execution for new product launches.
VictorOps, a creator of DevOps incident management software, appointed Jim Lejeal as chief financial officer.
