Salesloft, the pioneer of the first AI-powered revenue workflow platform for global sales teams, is pleased to announce the appointment of Mark Niemiec as its Chief Revenue Officer. With over two decades of experience, Niemiec brings a wealth of expertise garnered from his tenure at industry giants Salesforce and Cisco. In his new role, he will lead Salesloft’s global sales organisation, spearheading initiatives to further expand the company’s market reach.
Niemiec’s extensive operational prowess and customer-centric approach have been instrumental in driving growth for some of the world’s leading software enterprises. At Salesforce, he served as the Chief Revenue Officer for the Communications and Media operating unit, overseeing one of the largest and fastest-growing divisions globally. Before this, Niemiec held various leadership positions at Cisco, including roles in the Financial Services, software, and collaboration business units.
“The sales landscape is undergoing a transformative shift, with customers increasingly demanding a more personalised and informed buying experience,” remarked Niemiec. “Salesloft’s innovative platform aligns perfectly with this evolving paradigm, empowering sales teams to deliver tailored solutions that address customers’ unique needs. I am excited to join an organisation that shares my commitment to driving customer success.”
Niemiec’s appointment comes at a pivotal moment for Salesloft, following a year of significant growth and innovation. In June 2023, the company unveiled Rhythm, an AI-powered workflow solution designed to optimise seller actions based on buyer behaviours. Additionally, Salesloft was honoured to be recognised in the Deloitte 2023 Technology Fast 500™, showcasing its position as one of North America’s fastest-growing technology companies.
Most recently, Salesloft announced a strategic collaboration with IBM in January 2024 to integrate IBM WatsonX, IBM’s AI and data platform, into its solution. This integration empowers revenue teams with actionable insights to enhance deal closure rates.
“We are delighted to welcome Mark to our executive team,” said David Obrand, CEO at Salesloft. “His extensive experience and strategic vision will be invaluable as we continue to drive global expansion and innovation. With Mark’s leadership, we are confident in our ability to further accelerate growth and deliver exceptional value to our customers.”
