It’s been a big year for sales technology startup Outreach — the company raised $17.5 million in new funding in June and has also brought on a slew of notable investors and customers in the past year.
And last week the company announced three high-profile additions to its team: angel investor and previous LinkedIn exec Sarah Imbach will join Outreach’s board of directors; former T-Mobile VP Matt Millen will serve as senior vice president of revenue operations; and former Salesforce exec Katie Doyle was appointed VP of marketing.
Imbach has spent the last six years working as an investor and advisor in Seattle’s tech community, following stints in executive sales and business positions at LinkedIn and PayPal. Imbach was also an early investor in Outreach.
“Outreach was my first Seattle angel investment, and that decision came with a rigorous review of the company and its technology — looking back, it was one of the best decisions I’ve made,” Imbach said in a release. “Manny and the other founders embody all the critical characteristics that make up a rock star team, like talent, intelligence, interest in going big, and the grit to get through the inevitable challenges of running a start-up.”
Millen joins the company after more than five years as T-Mobile’s vice president of business sales, and Doyle comes from a position as the director of product marketing for Pardot, Salesforce’s marketing automation software.
“Coming from Salesforce, I understand both the strengths and weaknesses of CRM systems and how valuable and complementary Outreach is for sales executives on the front lines,” Doyle said in the release. “The systems sales reps have been using don’t help them work more efficiently, better connect with prospects, or sell more effectively. That’s where Outreach comes in, and how Manny and the team have been able to build such an impressive customer list so quickly.”
In the release, Outreach said the addition of Imbach, Millen, and Dyole will assist the company as it continues to expand into the enterprise market and increase its international presence. The release also said the company recently added several notable consumer customers, including Pandora, CenturyLink, Zillow and Glassdoor.
— Social media software startup Tagboard announced the addition of former Klout exec Tyler Singletary as the company’s vice president of platform. Singletary will lead Tagboard’s data platform strategy and product offerings as the company expands in those areas.
“Making sense of social data, especially across platforms, is a thrilling challenge. Tyler built Klout’s API platform from scratch, and his track record as a mastermind of social data products couldn’t be better suited to our plans,” Tagboard CEO Josh Decker said in a release. “This is a critical and incredibly exciting time for Tagboard as we evolve as a company. To have Tyler believe in our vision and join our growing team is a huge honor, and we are primed to utilize his expertise.”
Singletary served as Klout’s director of platform until the startup was acquired by Lithium Technologies. He then served as a VP and general manager at Lithium, leading Klout and consumer data efforts.
“I am excited to join a company that has a mission to provide quality legal help to everyone, and to help further grow the Avvo sales and support teams to a world-class level,” Tucker said in a release.
Tucker comes to Avvo from his position as VP of sales at Minds + Machines, a Seattle company that commercializes top-level domains. He also has experience leading sales, retail, and IT teams, including 14 years at IT hardware and software provider Zones.
— Seattle-based security and application delivery network provider F5 added sales management vet Aldo Dossola as the company’s VP of North America channels, overseeing the company’s indirect business in the North American commercial and public sectors.
Dossola has over 20 years in the enterprise software industry, and comes to F5 from machine data company Splunk, where he served as AVP of North America partner sales.
— Bay Area automotive price comparison platform TrueCar announced the addition of two new board members: Zillow VP and general manager of mortgages Erin Lantz and Neustar chief strategy officer Wes Nichols.
Lantz has been with Zillow since 2010, and before joining the company served as Bank of America’s SVP of program management.
