Salesloft Opens EMEA Headquarters in London, Expands Global Presence
The #1 Leader in Sales Engagement Announces Expansion to Europe and Welcomes Vice President of EMEA
ATLANTA – April 9, 2019 – Salesloft, the provider of the leading Sales Engagement Platform, today announced the opening of its Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) headquarters in London, England and welcomed a Vice President of EMEA Revenue, former LinkedIn executive Ollie Sharpe. The wealth of innovative multinationals and top technology talent in the UK made it a natural choice for Salesloft as the company further expands in the region as part of its global growth strategy.
“We’re excited to expand our presence outside of North America with our first European office,” said Kyle Porter, Salesloft’s CEO and founder. “We have already established customer relationships in the region and look forward to serving them locally as we grow our European and global business. Ollie is a great addition to the Salesloft team.”
The new London office will serve as Salesloft’s EMEA headquarters and will house the strategic business functions for the region, including sales, marketing, customer success, and support staff, which will provide support to local Salesloft users across the region. The company’s new office comes at an ideal time to support Salesloft’s rapid growth and expansion while taking advantage of the highly skilled labor market in London.
“EMEA is a massive growth opportunity for Salesloft. As the world of sales evolves, it is becoming vital for companies to become more efficient and leverage automated processes and analytics to predictively improve business growth,” says Ollie Sharpe. “It’s a privilege to join a company like Salesloft with its fantastic culture and market-leading sales engagement platform.”
As part of his new responsibilities, Ollie will grow the team in the region and continue developing Salesloft’s trademark world-class culture. He will build and manage the company’s presence across the European region, targeting organizations with sales teams that want to deliver better buying experiences to their prospects. Ollie brings more than 20 years of experience, leading teams and driving strong regional and global performance across Europe. He joins Salesloft after an impressive 10 year run with LinkedIn, EMEA.
Salesloft will have a greater presence in the local sales community, starting with AA-ISP Digital Sales World London on May 14 at the Grange Tower Bridge Hotel.
