In her new role, Cohen will oversee the company’s human resources and talent functions across global teams while reinforcing Salesloft’s commitment to maintaining its acclaimed culture known for fostering a great workplace environment.

“The way people work is rapidly changing due to advancements in technology, and Salesloft is at the heart of this transformation,” remarked Cohen. “Salesloft utilises AI and other technologies to enhance employee productivity and drive outcomes, ensuring that technology serves people, not the other way around. I’m thrilled to join a company dedicated to reshaping how both our employees and customers approach work.”

With close to two decades of experience in people management, Cohen brings a wealth of expertise to her new position.

Cohen’s arrival at Salesloft coincides with a period of significant growth for the company. Following the acquisition of Drift, a buyer experience and conversational AI company, Salesloft has positioned itself as the first and only AI Revenue Orchestration Platform for revenue teams, spanning the entire buyer journey. Additionally, Salesloft’s collaboration with IBM marks a milestone in its global expansion efforts, further solidifying its position as a leader in the industry.
