El Dorado Hills, CA (PRWEB) March 16, 2012
Alight Planning, developers of the first solution to make driver-based planning easy, today announced the appointment of Kevin Pellegrino as Vice President, Sales. Reporting directly to Rand Heer, Alight Planning’s founder and CEO, Pellegrino is introducing scalable sales processes to meet the increasing demand for more agile planning solutions.
Pellegrino has a 20-year track record of aligning objectives and motivating individuals and teams towards common goals that positively impact the bottom line. He has a track record of success with large companies such as Hewlett Packard and mid-sized organizations across the education, healthcare, and non-profit sectors. He completed an MBA at Canisius College in New York.
“It gives me great pleasure to welcome Kevin to lead our sales team,” said Rand Heer, Alight CEO and founder. “From his first day on the job, Kevin started adding value. He motivated me to develop an ROI Calculator that will enable FP&A teams to systematically quantify the value of planning activities from basic planning activities such as budgeting and reporting across the Planning Maturity Curve to forecasting and Agile Planning.”
“It’s great to be part of a world-class team with a proven product that is just waiting to take off,” said Pellegino. “What Rand did with Pillar for budgeting, he’s doing with Alight for Agile Planning. In addition to saving time, Agile Planning focuses on what’s important to finance right now: rolling forecasts and what-if analyses that enables better, faster business decisions. As a spreadsheet modeler, I could tell this software was something special, but when I met Don Koenes who heads up the Alight Planning Solutions Group, I quickly understood why finance consistently gives Alight Planning such excellent reviews.”
