PORTLAND, Ore., Jun 18, 2019 -- Koan, the modern leadership software platform, today appointed Scott Campbell as Chief Revenue Officer (CRO). Campbell's track record of bringing disruptive new technologies to market has included Go-to-Market leadership at Jive Software (IPO 2011), Puppet, and Lytics, in each case scaling early revenue into category-leading companies.
Says Koan CEO Matt Tucker, “Scott is a brilliant leader with a long history of seeing companies through their break-out stage. I’m ecstatic to welcome him to Koan and thrilled to have him as my business partner for Koan’s next stage”.
For Campbell, whose experience also includes sales leadership at Tripwire and Rogue Wave Software (IPO 1998), Koan represents a unique opportunity: “Koan addresses a huge need in a marketplace that has had remarkably little innovation,” says Campbell. “Our modern approach to goal and team management is already having a dramatic effect on the ability of organizations to properly align activities to objectives, making a huge impact on these companies’ ability to execute to their plans. I’m thrilled to be joining the team and to have the opportunity to work closely with Matt again to take Koan to the next level.”
Organizations struggle with communicating and measuring progress on their objectives. Teams work in isolation, priorities get lost, and the shared documents and spreadsheets companies use for tracking are a mess and don’t scale. Koan is here to help with a modern approach to strategic business execution. From the executive level down to individual contributors, Koan combines status reporting and goals (OKRs) tracking to improve transparency, accountability and feedback. By aligning the entire organization with a suite of tools that employees love using, Koan helps every team work with purpose.
Koan was founded in 2016 and is based in Portland and Palo Alto. It’s led by Matt Tucker (CEO), the former co-founder and CTO of Jive Software (Nasdaq: JIVE) and Scott Campbell (CRO), who has a strong track record of scaling early stage revenue into category-leading companies. Koan is used and loved by over 100 paying customers, including Vacasa, Iterable, SurveyMonkey and New Relic.
