ServiceSource Appoints Industry Veteran Gary B. Moore to Board of Directors
SAN FRANCISCO — Nov. 8, 2016 — ServiceSource (NASDAQ: SREV), the global leader in customer success and revenue lifecycle management solutions, today announced the appointment of Gary B. Moore to its Board of Directors. Moore brings over three decades of strategic, operational and executive leadership at world-class technology and services companies, including Cisco Systems, Inc. and Electronic Data Sytems (EDS), with an exemplary track record driving transformation, growth acceleration and shareholder value creation.
“Gary’s renowned expertise, leadership and rich industry insight will be a tremendous asset to the Board and instrumental in furthering ServiceSource’s strategy,” said Bruce Dunlevie, lead independent director for ServiceSource. “On behalf of the Board, the company and our shareholders, I’m pleased to welcome Gary and look forward to his positive contributions to ServiceSource.”
“Helping to build and lead one of the world’s largest services organizations at Cisco, I am intimately familiar with the challenges faced by technology companies – and businesses across all industry sectors – to deliver value and outcomes to customers,” said Moore. “ServiceSource has a unique and compelling value proposition that helps companies grow and thrive in the midst of cloud transformation and digital disruption. I am honored to join the company at this exciting time and am eager to help support the Board and management team to fully capitalize on the opportunities in front of us.”
Prior to his retirement in June 2015 from Cisco, Moore’s 15-year career at the networking, communications and collaboration company resulted in extraordinary growth and value creation, helping lead the business from revenue of $22 billion to more than $49 billion. Moore joined the company as SVP of Advanced Services in 2001, and subsequently became EVP of Cisco Global Services. Under his leadership, Moore built Cisco Global Services into a best-in-class services organization with more than 10,000 employees that grew from $3 billion to nearly $10 billion in annual revenue with world-class margins. In 2011, Moore was named Cisco’s first COO and then President, where he led Cisco through a transformation that re-engaged employees, returned the company to growth, enhanced margins and increased the stock price by 70 percent.
“ServiceSource continues to evolve and differentiate itself as a market leader powering the world’s revenue relationships. The addition of Gary to our Board of Directors will be a major advantage for the company as we accelerate our move forward in the emerging outcome economy,” said Christopher M. Carrington, CEO of ServiceSource. “We’re thrilled to have him onboard and anticipate benefitting greatly from his extensive experience and deep understanding of the revenue and customer growth challenges that our clients face every day—challenges that ServiceSource is uniquely positioned to solve.”
With today’s appointment, the ServiceSource Board now consists of seven independent directors.
