Former SAP Executive Ted Purcell Joins Clarizen as SVP, Worldwide Sales

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 11, 2013) - Clarizen, the leader in enterprise work collaboration and project management software, today announced that Ted Purcell has joined the company as senior vice president of worldwide sales. Purcell will lead Clarizen's worldwide sales operations, as the company continues to rapidly expand its global customer base. Purcell will play a critical role in scaling the global sales business with a special focus on new customer growth and making customers successful.

"This is a very exciting time in Clarizen's history with the release of v6, to help bring our vision of the future of work to life," said Clarizen founder and CEO Avinoam Nowogrodski. "I am delighted to welcome Ted to the Clarizen team to help deliver on this vision. I am confident that with his focused leadership, and his strong strategic and innovative thinking, Clarizen will continue to outperform our sales goals -- in both new bookings and expansions."

Purcell joins Clarizen directly following the launch of Clarizen v6 -- the largest product announcement in the company's history. He will apply his rigorous operational focus and his deep understanding of cloud, enterprise, B2B and consumer business to amplify v6's go-to-market strategy and to scale Clarizen's global organization.

"I was very attracted to Clarizen's approach of changing the way that companies work," said Purcell. "I'm extremely excited to join the team, build on the great customer momentum and culture already in place, and to share in the vision of leading the future of work."

Purcell joins Clarizen from SAP, where he held a variety of sales and senior sales leadership roles at a key time during the company's transition in the US and EMEA. He was a key executive in driving customer success and explosive growth in emerging areas and markets of their business, across the modern pillars of their strategy in Big Data, Mobility, and Cloud. Earlier in his career, Purcell held sales and business development leadership roles at leading technology companies, Covalent Technologies (ultimately acquired by VMWare), Shutterfly, and Pure Software (acquired by Rational Software and IBM).
