odd Giuntini Named Vice President of Sales; Brings 19 Years of Experience Leading Enterprise Sales Teams
SAN FRANCISCO – February 28, 2017 — Certain, the leader in enterprise event automation, today announced that Todd Giuntini has joined the company as Vice President of Sales in response to the increased market demand for event automation that connects buying signals from events with marketing automation and the customer journey. Todd will be critical in accelerating Certain’s already strong momentum, as a key contributor to the company’s go-to-market strategy.
This past year Certain experienced record growth, claiming three of the four top enterprise software players by market capitalization as customers and growing aggregate registrations for marketers from events by 40%. Capturing intent data is critical given the charter of Chief Marketing Officers to drive revenue growth. A recent Forrester report suggests CEOs will exit at least 30% of CMOs for not mustering the blended skill set needed to drive digital business transformation, design exceptional personalized experiences, and propel growth.
“The demand we’re seeing from marketing organizations who are driving digital transformation at global scale validates our vision that event automation is emerging as the superstar in the marketing technology stack,” said Peter Micciche, CEO of Certain. “Todd has outstanding enterprise sales expertise and I’m thrilled to charge him with accelerating our growth to match the demand marketers are showing to integrate event buying signals and leverage real-time data to drive revenue growth.”
“I am excited to join Certain with the opportunity to drive outsized value for marketers who are driving digital transformation for the largest enterprises in the world,” said Todd Giuntini, Vice President of Sales, Certain. “I look forward to helping leading marketers translate event-based buying signals and insights into accelerated sales cycles, revenue growth and stronger customer engagement and relationships.”
