Navy SEAL and Lone Survivor Author Marcus Luttrell Joins CallidusCloud's C3 2015 Conference

Navy Cross Recipient, Portrayed by Mark Wahlberg in the Blockbuster Film Lone Survivor, Shares His Story of Survival as Part of C3's Lineup of Visionary Speakers

DUBLIN, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 7, 2015) - Callidus Software Inc. (NASDAQ: CALD), a global leader in cloud-based sales, marketing, learning and customer experience solutions, announced Marcus Luttrell, Decorated Navy SEAL and author of the #1 New York Times best-selling book Lone Survivor, as a special guest keynote at the CallidusCloud Connections (C3) conference at the Wynn hotel in Las Vegas, May 11-13. Luttrell joins a powerful line up of visionary speakers led by CallidusCloud's president and CEO Leslie Stretch and featuring leading author and data scientist David McCandless.

Luttrell, whose story was dramatized in the 2014 film Lone Survivor, was part of a four-man team sent to take out a Taliban leader in June 2005. After a fluke run-in with herdsman alerted the local Taliban to their presence, the four SEALs engaged in a life or death firefight with a huge enemy force that encircled them. Three members of the team were killed; Luttrell, suffering from gunshot wounds and a broken back, managed to escape and was awarded the Navy Cross for his actions.

"Marcus rounds out an incredible lineup of speakers that combine inspirational stories with the most eminent thought leadership of our time," said Giles House, SVP and chief marketing officer, CallidusCloud. "C3 is the must-attend event of the year where sales, marketing, learning and customer experience leaders will gather to discover how to align their companies around the customer journey, harness incentives to drive sustainable revenue growth and use data to predict performance."
