Famularo to head ERwin, move HQ to LI

New ERwin CEO Adam Famularo.

Tampa-based software firm ERwin Inc. plans to move its executive offices to Long Island. Makes sense: Newly minted CEO Adam Famularo lives in Garden City.

Famularo, a former CA executive who once ran the software giant’s cloud computing unit, comes to ERwin from Verizon Enterprise Solutions, where he was head of global channels until last month. And he’s not the only CA transplant. ERwin’s database modeling software was acquired from CA last month by Parallax Capital Partners, based in Laguna, Calif.

Parallax announced the acquisition and Famularo’s appointment on Wednesday. The plan: expand beyond data modeling and into the much-larger data-management sector.

“With our acquisition of the industry leader in data modeling, we plan to enhance the value of the ERwin brand and its award-winning solutions, partners and people to the benefit of the overall market,” said Jim McGarry, operating partner at Parallax.

Famularo told Newsday he is looking for office space in the Melville area, where he expects to add five to 10 staffers. The company currently has 25 workers in Tampa and expects to grow staff to 100 within the next year. Famularo said he expects to acquire three or four more data-management software companies over the next 12 to 18 months.

“I am excited to be leading the ERwin team and expanding our vision into the Big Data market,” he said. “We expect to extend and expand ERwin’s leadership in new technology segments to meet market demands for Big Data mastery.”
