SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 8, 2015) -  EverString, a leading provider of predictive analytics for sales and marketing, today announced the appointment of several high-profile business and technology leaders as outside members of its Advisory Board:

  • William Sheedy, Executive Vice President at Visa
  • Jeff Epstein, Former CFO of Oracle
  • Diane Yu, Co-Founder and CTO of FreeWheel
  • Clint Oram, Co-founder and CTO of SugarCRM.

These latest additions to EverString's Advisory Board increase the company's leadership depth as it continues through hyper-growth. EverString functions as an intelligence layer for B2B organizations, offering Predictive Scoring and Predictive Demand Generation to empower the next generation of marketers.

The expansion of the company's advisors comes on the heels of several major announcements and milestones for EverString. The company recently announced its inclusion on the JMP Securities Hot 100 List of Best Privately Held Software Companies, as well as a first-of-its-kind partnership with marketing enablement leader N3. EverString's team of more than 100 employees has grown more than fourfold during the last year, including a number of key hires with experience from Marketo, Salesforce, BlueKai, NetSuite and others, to support its rapidly growing customer base.

"Predictive marketing capabilities are no longer a 'nice-to-have,' but are now a necessity in maintaining a competitive edge in B2B sales and marketing," said Jeff Epstein, operating partner at Bessemer Venture Partners. "The predictive marketing space is growing rapidly and EverString's latest momentum, coupled with its comprehensive and mature technology offerings, has propelled the company into a leadership position. I am excited for the opportunity to contribute to the company's plans for continued rapid growth and innovation."

Previously the Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Oracle, Epstein currently lectures at Stanford University in addition to his role at Bessemer Venture Partners. Epstein recently joined the board at CouchBase, and also serves on the boards of Kaiser Permanente, The Priceline Group, Shutterstock, Global Eagle Entertainment and several other private companies.

Another newly appointed EverString Advisory Board member, William Sheedy, currently serves as a global executive of corporate strategy, mergers and acquisitions, and government relations at Visa. Sheedy joined Visa in 1993 and has held a number of prior roles at the company including President of the company's North America region and later Group President of the Americas where he oversaw Visa's business across nearly 50 countries. Sheedy will help EverString navigate the complexity of scaling the organization and entering new markets.

The other additions to the Advisory Board, Diane Yu and Clint Oram, are seasoned executives in the advertising, marketing, CRM and sales industries. Yu is co-founder and CTO of FreeWheel, a video ad tech firm acquired by Comcast. She previously served as the VP of Engineering at digital marketing provider DoubleClick. Oram is co-founder and CTO of SugarCRM, a customer relationship management platform. Prior to co-founding SugarCRM, he held senior roles in the development, professional services and product management organizations at Epiphany, Octane Software and Hewlett Packard.

"As we continue to accelerate our growth and drive predictive marketing understanding and awareness, we are thrilled to have the advice and support of these business and technology visionaries to support our mission," said J.J. Kardwell, president of EverString. "We have aggressive goals for our business expansion and product roadmap, and we have strategically built out our board to guide us through this period of rapid growth as we strengthen our place at the forefront of the predictive marketing landscape. These latest additions to our extended team have a thorough understanding of the importance of EverString's offerings, and we're excited to leverage their extensive experience at industry-leading companies."
