Catalant Names Dave Walsh Chief Revenue Officer
Former Salesforce executive tapped to drive sales and go-to-market strategy for the company
BOSTON – January 11, 2017 – Catalant, the leading technology platform for business expertise, announced today that Dave Walsh will join the company as chief revenue officer. Walsh, who previously served as an advisor to the company, will be responsible for driving the company’s go-to-market strategy in order to accelerate universal adoption within companies and across industries.
“For our most forward-thinking clients, Catalant has become a vital enterprise-wide resource,” said Rob Biederman, co-founder and co-CEO of Catalant. “Dave has more than 30 years of experience driving the sales strategy for organizations like ours that are defining new software categories. We believe that with his help and guidance we are well positioned to realize our vision.”
Walsh previously spent 12 years leading enterprise sales teams for Salesforce. He joined Salesforce when it was only a visionary start-up and, as a founding member of the enterprise sales team, helped grow it into the Fortune 500 company it is today. While there, he helped increase enterprise sales from $60 million to over $6 billion. Prior to Salesforce, Walsh held senior sales positions with Onyx Software, Powersoft/Sybase and Blyth Software where he demonstrated an uncanny ability to build deep relationships that result in high-value sales and remarkable year-over-year growth.
“I have had the unique opportunity to see some of the world’s biggest companies grow at an enormous scale,” said Walsh. “When I started working with Catalant as an advisor, I was struck by their tenacity. They are not afraid to think big. Just look at what they’re tackling, one of the most critical challenges facing enterprise companies today – talent; and the success they’ve had to-date speaks for itself. To be their first chief revenue officer is incredibly exciting and I’m looking forward to using my experiences and insights to grow the business.”
Catalant rebranded in July of 2016. The rebrand, which came on the heels of a $22M Series C financing round led by General Catalyst Partners, reflects the company’s commitment to redefining how enterprises access top talent to solve critical challenges.
