SAN FRANCISCO--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Zenefits today announced the appointment of Jeff Carr as Chief Revenue Officer, effective immediately. Known for his expertise in building strong sales and customer success organizations, Carr will lead the company’s go-to-market strategy, working closely with newly appointed Zenefits CEO, Jay Fulcher.
Carr is a technology veteran, bringing to Zenefits more than 20 years experience leading a variety of venture-backed startups and successful public companies. His career includes executive roles at PeopleFluent (CEO), Saba (President), Taleo (COO, EVP, Sales), Motiva (CEO), RightWorks (President) and PeopleSoft (President, EVP).
“Jeff is a hands-on, dynamic leader with a proven track record for creating customer-centric sales and service organizations. He is a well known and highly regarded executive with a tremendous amount of experience in the HCM industry. He is joining Zenefits at a pivotal time as we execute on our all-in-one HR platform strategy and evolve as a SaaS company,” said Fulcher.
Carr’s appointment comes on the heels of Jay Fulcher joining as Zenefits CEO just this week and the recent launch of Zenefits’ HR One winter product release, which introduced 10 new partners and powerful new compliance, documents and mobile applications to its industry-leading HR platform. In his role as CRO, Carr will be responsible for expanding Zenefits’ market reach, connecting small and medium sized businesses with the industry’s most comprehensive HR solution and offering the flexibility, accuracy and efficiency they need to thrive.
“I’ve spent much of my career in the HCM technology field and have followed Zenefits with great interest. Zenefits stands out for its vision and execution of a disruptive, all-in-one HR platform. The other thing that really caught my attention was Zenefits’ unique app store ecosystem, which will soon have more than 75 pre-built integrations, including Box, Salesforce and Lyft. Zenefits has the opportunity to truly change the playing field for small and medium sized businesses. I’m looking forward to this opportunity to help the company grow and scale to meet its massive potential,” said Carr.
