As chief operating officer for Quantarium, a Seattle-based artificial intelligence company, Malcolm Cannon demonstrates excellence and leadership through a unique combination of deep software operations experience, real estate industry knowledge and depth. Combining these with a motivating and inspiring attitude towards world-class talent, Cannon leads Quantarium personnel daily through example.
Cannon was an original Quantarium start-up partner. With over 20 years of experience, he has an extensive background in both analytical data approaches and data lakes as well as broad executive enterprise technology management, having led multiple technology companies providing mission-critical ERP applications to large customer bases.
Quantarium’s Data and Search Platform was built by data scientists, mathematicians and computer architects with backgrounds related to some of the most successful companies in technology, including Microsoft, Google and Amazon. Cannon aids in driving Quantarium’s unique approach to fuse a multi-sourced comprehensive national-footprint data corpus with innovative proprietary multidimensional data modeling and evolutionary programming technology. Put simply, Quantarium is, at its core, an AI engineering company, rather than a real estate or mortgage company that is implementing AI.
Cannon built an operational plan for Quantarium that emphasizes growth through customer success. No employee at Quantarium is non-customer-facing; no area of Quantarium operations is removed from customer success. This insight is indeed the secret-sauce of Quantarium’s stellar growth.
What is one thing you cannot do without?
“I cannot do without highly intelligent and high-integrity people around me, pushing me, challenging me, but also willing to learn from my unique experience. Modern organizations certainly have IP but people are the nub that builds superb and sustainable organizations.”
