We’re relentlessly focused on expanding and enhancing Verkada’s platform and product offering. As we head into 2024, we’re making new investments into our go-to-market function that will both expand and enrich our relationship with customers and partners, ultimately ensuring that our innovative solutions are helping protect as many communities as possible.
Three new leaders are joining our Marketing team to shepherd this growth and expansion: Richard Rogers joins us to lead of Global Demand Gen and Field Marketing; Priyanka Srinivasan as Product Marketing; and Adee McAninch as Global Channel Marketing.
These investments follow a 69% growth in the marketing team’s size in the past two years and a host of new initiatives and programs – from our inaugural user conference, VerkadaOne, to our reimagined Partner Program. Richard Rogers will build on momentum from VerkadaOne in his role as Senior Vice President of Global Demand Gen and Field Marketing, and continue to help us meet customers where they are with Verkada-led events across all major regions. Priyanka Srinivasan will continue to elevate how we bring new products and features to our customers as Vice President of Product Marketing. As we continue to invest in our partner ecosystem – which has grown by 40% in just the past year – Adee McAninch will be dedicated to developing our offering and relationships in the channel as Senior Director of Global Channel Marketing.
