Nintex is adding some big-time players to the board, including one who bleeds Seahawks blue.

The Bellevue-based company  — a maker of workflow automation software — today is announcing that former Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Steve Largent has joined the board. Also, joining is Brian Turner, the former CFO of Outerwall and RealNetworks.

Largent — who was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio in 1995 — is not joining Nintex simply for his NFL cred (and ability to get free Hawks tickets). Following his NFL career, Largent served as a congressman from Oklahoma. He is also the past president and CEO of the wireless trade group CTIA.

“As the workforce becomes increasingly mobile, Nintex is a dominant force in enabling enterprises to stay connected through the cloud and ensure work continues to move forward in or outside of the office,” Largent said. “I can’t wait to lend my insight and knowledge to help Nintex expand its platform and fulfill its vision of ‘workflow for everyone, everywhere.'”

The naming of Largent and Turner follows the the appointment of Mark Woodward, president and CEO of E2open, to the board earlier this year.

Nintex continues to grow, announcing that it recently surpassed 1,000 cloud-connected customers worldwide. The service is designed to help organizations automate their business processes, everything from managing content to assigning tasks to recording data.

And, for anyone who’d like to know what it’s like to have Largent on your team, take a look at this classic hit.
