VonSosen brings nearly two decades of CRM and Cloud technology marketing, strategy and corporate development expertise to InsideView. He most recently spent five years as VP of marketing -- leading fast-growing eCommerce start-up marketing strategies -- most recently at MarketLive and previously Infopia, where he helped build each company's brand, develop their partner ecosystems, expand revenue generation and drive product innovations. Prior to that, he played a fundamental role in launching the first SAP CRM on-demand solution as VP of solutions marketing at SAP. In the late nineties, VonSosen built Siebel's communications and energy CRM industry solutions as director of product marketing.

"In our current world's mandate of working smarter and faster with real-time data, InsideView is leading the charge in a market thirsty for innovation: sales and CRM," said VonSosen.
