IVR Company Angel Welcomes Cloud Veteran to Team
February 06, 2012
As a pioneer of the cloud, Angel needs all the support it can get to maintain its momentum in the IVR and call center solutions space, and a significant part of this support has to do with its team.
A provider of enterprise-focused, cloud-based Customer Engagement Management solutions, Angel has now welcomed Steve Holton as senior vice president of sales and field operations. In this position, Holton – a cloud veteran – will oversee Angel’s entire revenue-generating functions, as well as its multi-channel IVR and call center solutions.
Holton has more than 19 years of experience in sales, marketing, account management, business development and support, having served in senior-level executive positions at Webroot, Entrust (News - Alert) and RightNow Technologies, where he served as vice president of sales. There, he was behind the launch and execution of the company’s “dust to IPO” go-to market plan, which produced $65 million in revenue and 27 consecutive quarters of revenue growth before it hit a milestone 2004 public offering.
"Angel helped pioneer the cloud and will continue to enable enterprise companies to use the cloud to support their brands and customer engagement needs," said Dave Rennyson, president of Angel. "Steve's successful experience in rapidly scaling SaaS (News - Alert) organizations, with a focus on acquiring and delighting customers, will enable Angel to accelerate its global growth in the enterprise space."
Undoubtedly, Holton’s experience has certainly prepared him for his new role at Angel, where customer experience management and SaaS solutions are the norm.
"My experience has shown that successful SaaS companies must be intensely focused on customer success, innovation and execution -- Angel is focused on all of these things," said Holton in a press release. "Angel is a fast growing company with disruptive CEM innovations that redefine what it means to truly thrill customers, and I look forward to leading Angel's accelerated global expansion."
