Clearbit, an industry leader in Marketing Intelligence software serving B2B organizations, today announced that Derek Schlicker has joined the company as Chief Financial Officer. With more than 15 years of enterprise SaaS (News - Alert) leadership experience, Derek brings deep financial, operational and M&A expertise to the rapidly growing Clearbit team.
"I'm delighted to welcome Derek to the team," said Ross Moser, Clearbit's CEO. "His experience driving scale and execution in SaaS operations will be a critical asset as Clearbit is accelerating our customer growth across all B2B segments."
Derek's CFO appointment is the latest of several additions to Clearbit's executive team since Ross Moser assumed the role of CEO in March. In May Kevin Tate joined the company as Chief Marketing Officer, while Jeffrey Coleman was appointed Chief Customer Officer in June. The company has grown by more than 50% so far in 2021.
"It's exciting to be joining a team with such strong momentum, and in a space that's evolving very quickly," said Derek about his new role as CFO. "We're in a market where companies are clearly feeling the pressure to better understand their customers and optimize their go-to-market operations. I see this as a massive opportunity, and we're already experencing outsized demand for Clearbit's platform."

"We've seen a fundamental shift in how business buyers prefer to engage with the companies that serve them," says Moser of today's market. "Companies that are able to target and embrace digital B2B buyers with efficient and personalized online interactions are dramatically outpacing the competition - and Clearbit is proud to be powering their success. The digital B2B funnel is here to stay."
