SAN FRANCISCO, March 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- People.ai, creators of the first Revenue Intelligence System powered by AI, today announced that John Gilman has joined the company as Chief Revenue Officer (CRO), responsible for worldwide sales, channel and alliances.
"People.ai is ushering in a new era in intelligence across sales, marketing, and customer success teams," said Oleg Rogynskyy, founder and chief executive officer at People.ai. "John's deep experience building and scaling high-performing sales organizations will accelerate our ability to help customers get more from their go-to-market motions with the power of AI."
Gilman comes to People.ai with two decades of driving revenue growth and building successful sales teams at SaaS companies. Most recently, he was at New Relic in a variety of sales leadership roles, including SVP Strategic Accounts & Alliances. He built and led sales teams across nearly every region, segment and industry and grew revenue from a $50 million start-up to a nearly $500 million public company. Prior to New Relic, John spent fifteen years at Salesforce, having joined as the 100th employee, where he contributed to the company's massive growth from $5 million to more than $5 billion in revenue and taking it from a one-product startup to a global leader in cloud computing.
"Enterprise customers have never been able to realize the promise of Salesforce's vision from twenty years ago because the manual labor to keep the database up to date is incredibly time intensive, and salespeople would rather be selling and in front of customers," said John Gilman, Chief Revenue Officer of People.ai. "With the introduction of AI and People.ai's vision, we're solving that challenge, unlocking selling capacity and delivering insights that enable revenue-generating teams to accelerate results. I'm thrilled to join such a disruptive company."
