With more than 20 years of experience in the high tech industry, Tim was most recently at VCE, the converged platforms division of EMC, where he was COO and one of the founding members that helped bring the firm to a $3B+ run rate in just six years. At VCE, Tim led the delivery of a new generation of cloud-based solutions that have transformed the agility and profitability of some of the world’s largest enterprises. Reporting to Sprinklr President Carlos Dominguez, Page will be responsible for fostering even greater collaboration between the company’s business units and continuing to position the organization for long-term growth.
“Throughout my career, I’ve realized there are a few characteristics exceptional companies share: an industry-changing product, talented and positive people, and world-class advisors. Sprinklr has all three,” said Page. “This company is on a rare kind of trajectory, and I’m looking forward to the journey.”
Further validating Sprinklr’s mission to enable brands to become customer-first organizations, the company is welcoming its two first strategic advisors: Executive Chairman and former CEO of Cisco John Chambers and Professor Mohan Sawhney, a trusted guide for the world’s top CMO’s and the McCormick Foundation Chair of Technology at Kellogg School of Management.
“In an age of digital disruption, enterprises need to deliver a seamless customer experience spanning all digital and offline channels,” said Sawhney. “Sprinklr is leading the way with a system of engagement that’s unparalleled in its scope and power, and I’m delighted to partner with the company in architecting the front-office of the future.”
Sprinklr has also added Ed Gillis to its board. Gillis is one of the most distinguished financial minds in the business, having served as CFO at major tech organizations including Veritas, PTC, and Lotus, in addition to interim executive roles at Skype and Avaya.
“Sprinklr has seen unprecedented growth over the last year as the world’s most valuable brands have realized the transformative impact that social can have as a way to create enterprise value and enable more human experiences at scale,” said Ragy Thomas, Founder and CEO of Sprinklr. “Building a new class of enterprise software requires a pioneering and diverse range of enterprise thinking, and we’re thrilled to welcome even more great minds into the Sprinklr family.”
