Steve Walske Joins 6sense Board of Directors
Provides Expertise to Support Growth of Leading Predictive Intelligence Solution for Enterprise Marketing and Sales Teams
Walske is renowned for building one of the most impressive enterprise software sales-driven organizations in the world. His disciplined, methodical practice is now emulated globally. As CEO of Parametric Technology Corporation (NASDAQ: PMTC), a supplier of mechanical design and manufacturing software, Walske took the company from founding to over $1 billion in revenue. Under his leadership, PTC had 40 consecutive quarters of increasing revenues and profits as a public company.
Walske serves on the board of several prominent Silicon Valley companies including Synopsys (NASDAQ: SNPS), Medallia and Platfora. He was formerly chairman at Bladelogic (acquired by BMC) and at Endeca Technologies (acquired by Oracle). In his current role as managing director of Myriad Investments, Walske advises VC-backed companies on sales processes and growth strategies for optimal revenue growth.
Walske is courted by many startups. His decision to join a board depends on whether he believes in the leadership team and thinks the business can scale. “I only get involved in startups that I am confident will be billion dollar companies,” said Walske. “6sense has the vision, the clear market differentiation, the leadership team, the technology and the enterprise-grade ‘happy’ customers to be one of those companies.”
“6sense is honored to offer Steve a seat on our board of directors,” said 6sense CEO and founder, Amanda Kahlow. “We have had a remarkable first year. We have doubled sales quarter over quarter, closing six-figure deals with some of the world’s top-tier enterprise companies including Cisco, Dell, NetApp, VMware, Lenovo, CSC, CBS Interactive and NetSuite. We have rock solid technology, an incredible ecosystem of data partners and proven market fit. It is time to scale, and I couldn’t think of anyone better to guide us along our journey to see our goals to fruition.”
