ATLANTA, February 6, 2024 – Salesloft, provider of the first and only AI-powered revenue workflow platform for global sales teams, today announced that Mark Niemiec has joined the company as its chief revenue officer. A former long-time Salesforce and Cisco executive with more than 20 years of experience, Mark will oversee Salesloft’s global sales organization.
“The landscape of sales is undergoing a transformative shift, where the role of salespeople is evolving to meet the changing buyer preferences of customers,” said Niemiec. “Buyers seek a more informed, tailored purchasing journey, guided by research and insights. Salespeople must be prepared to help them with the right information at the right time. Salesloft has emerged as the ideal platform to facilitate this evolved sales approach and I’m proud to join an organization that shares my passion for helping customers solve their biggest problems.”
Niemiec joins Salesloft after an impressive run at Salesforce, most recently serving as chief revenue officer for the company’s Communications and Media operating unit, one of the fastest growing and largest operating units in the world. Prior to Salesforce, Niemiec spent 10 years at Cisco, where he held complex and challenging leadership roles in Cisco’s Financial Services business as well as their software and collaboration business unit.
“We are thrilled to welcome Mark to our executive team as our new Chief Revenue Officer,” said David Obrand, CEO at Salesloft. “Mark’s strong operational discipline and proven track record as a customer-centric enterprise go-to-market leader for some of the world’s biggest software companies will be invaluable as Salesloft continues our global expansion.”
Niemiec joins Salesloft following an exciting year of growth and innovation. In June 2023, the company launched Rhythm, a first-of-its-kind, AI-powered workflow solution that translates buyer behaviors into prioritized seller actions based on highest impact. Salesloft was also named to the Deloitte 2023 Technology Fast 500™, which recognizes the fastest-growing technology and life sciences companies in North America.
Most recently, Salesloft announced a collaboration in January 2024 with IBM to embed IBM watsonx, IBM’s AI and data platform, within the Salesloft platform. This integration is designed to help revenue teams understand and execute the right actions to predictably and consistently close more deals.
