KiteDesk Adds Key SaaS Veterans to Management Team

New CMO, CSO Join Fast-Growing Startup

TAMPA, FL and SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 21, 2015) - KiteDesk, creator of smarter sales prospecting software for sharp salespeople, today announced key personnel moves, adding Eric Quanstrom as CMO and Richard Fuller as CSO to the fast-growing startup's management team.

"We're delighted to have attracted the caliber of leader we've added in Eric and Richard," said Sean Burke, KiteDesk CEO. "They both possess amazing startup chops and more importantly -- an intense focus on serving our sales audience."

Quanstrom, most recently CMO for SaaS sales companies Pipeliner CRM and Nimble, brings a wealth of ideas to the newly-created Chief Marketing Officer post.

"When I saw what KiteDesk was doing for outbound sales teams -- in many cases 2X-5X qualified leads per rep, by creating a better sales prospecting tool than any I've seen -- I knew I had to jump aboard," said Quanstrom. 

The task of building a leading sales team for a company dedicated to helping outbound-driven sales organizations proved an irresistible challenge to Fuller, who has held sales leadership roles with Oracle, TenFold and VersionOne.

"Despite being an overused cliche, we are truly drinking our own champagne by using KiteDesk -- as our tool really energizes sales, creating more quality leads for each team member," said Fuller, the company's new Chief Sales Officer. "I'm really excited for Sales Leaders that have teams using KiteDesk because now they get to say their prospecting teams are really nailing it."

KiteDesk's smarter sales prospecting tools provide the convenience of a Web-based app, Chrome extension and social media toolbar-prospecting anywhere/everywhere across the Internet with the power of actionable data (including accurate emails and phone numbers) for qualified leads.

"Our vision is to enable a different approach to outbound lead generation," said CEO Burke. "Leaders like Eric and Richard have proven they can execute to make this a reality as we continue to grow the number of KiteDesk-enabled sales organizations."
