RingLead, the leader in data orchestration and RevOps automation, today announced four strategic additions to its sales team. These key hires reflect RingLead’s continued momentum as the emerging market leader, as well as its expansion strategy across the enterprise business segment.
The unprecedented events of 2020 have dramatically and permanently changed buying and selling behavior as we know it. Organizations’ sales and marketing strategies have transformed from analog and siloed processes, to now, an absolutely necessary, hyper-automated, digital-first engagement with customers. Businesses have been forced to double down on data orchestration and transformation investments in order to deliver in this new chapter. The expansion of RingLead’s sales team, along with hiring efforts across other key departments, will enable the company to meet the growing demands of businesses.

“Recently, I became a member of the RingLead team and am beyond excited to be a part of their stellar sales organization. Having been in SaaS sales the last 9 years, I know first-hand the problems and chaos that having messy data in a CRM and Marketing platform can cause. I understand the frustrations and have felt the stinging pain of dealing with data decay and the time suck of sorting out duplicate leads and inaccurate information. I’m on a journey to help others with the same challenges I faced as a sales rep, enabling them with the ability to focus on revenue generating activities instead.” -TK Newman, Director of Sales
Over the past nine months, RingLead has continued to sign new customers despite the economic challenges triggered by the pandemic. That comes as no surprise to me. What I’ve seen in the industry is that a great many firms are ready for the next step in their evolution. They’ve embraced solutions like RingLead and ZoomInfo and are now ready to integrate multiple data streams into a business-development platform. It’s exciting to be a part of a company that is sharply focused on meeting that growing demand.” –David Eisenstat, Area Vice President of Sales

Having worked at VC and PE backed companies before, the vision and culture is very different.
