On behalf of the Board and the ServiceSource team globally, we welcome Gary to this role as he leads the Company forward in its strategic transformation and positioning for the future.”
“I am enthusiastic and optimistic about ServiceSource’s strategy and the team we have in place to execute the Company’s ongoing transformation initiatives,” said Moore. “ServiceSource is uniquely able to address a clear and compelling market need as companies reimagine their B2B customer journey experiences in a digital era. I am honored to lead our talented employees and to have the opportunity to work with the entire senior leadership team, including our three newest leaders—CFO Rich Walker, COO Debbie Dunnam, and Chief Marketing and Growth Officer Denzil Samuels—as we ensure the Company is best-positioned to serve our clients.”
“I am proud of the progress our people have made to transform and reposition the Company in recent years,” said Carrington. “Through my ongoing involvement on the Board, I look forward to supporting Gary, the leaders on his team and the more than 3,700 ServiceSource employees who support our global clients’ transformation of their B2B customer engagement models.”
