San Mateo, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) February 07, 2011
Marketo, the fastest growing provider of Revenue Performance Management solutions, today announced that it has appointed Paul Albright to Chief Revenue Officer (CRO). As CRO, Albright will be responsible for driving the company’s overall revenue strategy, as well as all facets of how Marketo’s sales and marketing departments collectively accelerate global revenue growth and profitability.
“A core part of our thought leadership and brand message is that companies need to fundamentally change the way that their traditional marketing and sales teams work and work together, and a key part of doing that is to unify the organizations under a single Chief Revenue Officer,” said Phil Fernandez, President & CEO, Marketo. “It’s time for us to practice what we preach and we are delighted to welcome Paul Albright to our team as CRO. He has a great blend of leadership experience spanning marketing and sales, and executive experience spanning raw startups to multi-billion dollar global enterprises. As CRO, Paul will provide a unified view of customer interactions across our marketing and sales teams, and put the right strategies, tools, and metrics in place that will have the greatest positive impact on our revenue growth.”
A Silicon Valley veteran, Albright most recently served as General Manager and CMO of SuccessFactors (NASDAQ: SFSF), the global leader in Business Execution Software. Previously, Albright was SVP of Marketing at NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP), CEO of SeeCommerce and was EVP & CMO at Informatica (NASDAQ: INFA).
“I am delighted to join Marketo during such an exciting period of the company’s growth,” said Paul Albright, Chief Revenue Officer, Marketo. “The time is now for organizations of all sizes to embrace the strategy of Revenue Performance Management. The faster companies integrate sales and marketing using Cloud Applications, the faster they will grow. And Marketo provides Cloud Applications that speed revenue growth immediately after a company buys our products – literally in hours, not days or months as it has been in the past.”
“Marketo has realized the benefits of its solutions firsthand – the company is one of the fastest growing private companies in the history of enterprise software,” continued Albright. “I’m honored to join this amazing team and to help incite a revenue revolution for our customers and partners around the world!”
