“I really wanted to be with an organization that is fundamentally changing the way companies do business,” said Tracy Eiler, chief marketing officer at Cloud9. “In my early conversations with Cloud9 customers, I’ve heard some incredible stories about how fast they see Cloud9’s value in optimizing their sales process, and how they now have visibility into things they’ve never seen before. I’m so impressed. I really look forward to ramping our demand generation engine and helping to fuel the company’s growth.”
