SAN DIEGO – (COMMERCIAL LINE) – Wrike, the most powerful work management platform, announced today the addition of two new members to its executive team, better positioning the company to handle substantial growth in the coming years. The category of work management is growing rapidly, as organizations face increasing work complexities as they seek to increase efficiency and productivity. To broaden market reach and manage demand, Wrike hires Thomas Scott as Chief Financial Officer. Scott will be responsible for driving Wrike’s next phase of growth as more companies turn to the platform to transform their workflows into a digital age. Brian Clark has been appointed Chief Revenue Officer to help double Wrike’s annual recurring revenue and expand its global sales strategy to reach organizations in new industries.
“We found that 86% of business leaders plan to invest in tools that create a single source of truth for work within their organization,” says Andrew Filev, founder of Wrike. “Powerful work management platforms, such as Wrike, bring all teams together and work in one place to increase visibility and maximize efficiency. This is why we are seeing rapid growth in demand for labor management, especially as organizations face the pressures of economic uncertainty. This is a pivotal time for our company and Thomas and Brian will be vital additions to our leadership team. Their combined and diverse experience will propel us into our next phase of growth. ”
Thomas Scott joins Wrike with over 20 years of experience as a top financial manager in startups and publicly traded companies, including Zebra Technologies, Fetch Robotics, Corning Optical Communications and Spidercloud. Scott has experience building and leading disparate teams to support fast-growing businesses. At Corning, he led a global team responsible for five acquired business units. Most recently, Scott led Fetch Robotics through its successful release at Zebra Technologies.
“Over the past 25 years I have worked with a number of fast growing companies in the technology and telecommunications industry and have helped these organizations roll out new technology solutions and scale globally,” says Scott. “At Wrike, I was presented with the opportunity to empower what they are doing and bring an indispensable platform to market. There is nothing more exciting than this. ”
Brian Clark has a solid track record of driving the company’s sales and growth. Clark joins Wrike from InMoment, where he has tripled his business as a CRO. Previously, he was one of SiriusDecisions’ first employees and CROs, where he played a pivotal role in shaping the go-to-market marketing and sales strategies that drove market leadership and significant revenue growth. The success of SiriusDecisions ultimately led to the acquisition by Forrester Research. In this new CRO role at Wrike, Clark will be responsible for bringing Wrike’s incredibly diverse and powerful use cases to customers and prospects alike through its growing global sales force.
“I am thrilled to be joining Wrike at a time when the company is looking to expand its business to multiple verticals,” said Clark. “I couldn’t miss the opportunity to join a high-energy team in a competitive space and help them drive Wrike’s sales strategy to meet the growing market demand for work management software. We will make this an incredibly successful next chapter for the organization and our customers. ”
