Press Release   •   Jun 10, 2013 16:32 BST

London June 10th 2013 Sitecore, a global leader in customer experience management software, today announced the appointment of two new executives to the company’s leadership team. Jeff Thomas joins Sitecore as Chief Marketing Officer and Gregory Symon as Senior Vice President of North American Client and Partner Engagement.

The hiring of Thomas and Symon builds on Sitecore’s commitment to bolster its global and North American executive team in order to execute Sitecore’s strategic direction as a technology innovator, thought leader and trusted partner that helps marketers deliver personalised, engaging digital experiences that win customers for life.

“Jeff and Gregory are exceptional leaders who possess a keen understanding of how to bridge the marketing and sales organisations to ultimately put Sitecore on the short list of every digital marketer”, said Michael Seifert, CEO, Sitecore. “Their expertise, creative approach and high-energy drive will be instrumental in further building Sitecore’s brand awareness and go-to-market success around the world.”

As CMO, Thomas will lead Sitecore’s global marketing team. He will be responsible for the company’s overall go-to-market strategy, applying his talent for building and leading high-performing teams to define, elevate, activate and transform Sitecore’s marketing across the entire business and on a global scale.

“I am excited by the opportunity to work with a team that is truly reinventing customer engagement,” commented Thomas. “Sitecore has already achieved tremendous success through its heritage as a leader in the web content management market. Now, the company is at the forefront of a fundamental change in the way people engage with brands, not just on websites, but across every on and offline channel in which these interactions occur. I look forward to building on Sitecore’s content-centric approach and help transform the customer engagement marketplace, enabling marketers to deliver the content  -- and experiences -- that matter most to their audiences.”

Thomas brings to Sitecore more than 20 years of marketing leadership experience working with iconic enterprise technology companies such as Microsoft, Hewlett Packard, Cisco, BEA/Oracle and Symantec. Most recently, he served as SVP of Platform Marketing at Salesforce.com, where he launched the “Salesforce Platform,” leading the cloud computing pioneer into a new era of innovation.

Joining Thomas on the executive team, Gregory Symon will serve as Senior Vice President of Client and Partner Engagement and will be responsible for leading Sitecore’s North American sales and partner teams. Symon spent more than 20 years at Intel leading the company’s software business development organisation, and most recently served as the Vice President and General Manager of North American Commercial Sales at Red Hat Inc., where he led the company’s largest sales geography and managed numerous teams across the organisation.

“I’ve joined a tremendously skilled team of sales professionals dedicated to growing Sitecore's sales and partnerships in North America and beyond,” said Symon. “Sitecore has more than 3,000 innovative customers and partners already, and I look forward to the next 3,000 and beyond.”
