Upland Software Hires Brian Wilson as Vice President of Sales
Veteran of cloud project and portfolio management software market brings strong understanding of user needs and competitive landscape to Upland executive team
AUSTIN, Texas, July 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Upland Software, the world’s largest cloud provider of enterprise software for project, portfolio, and work management, today announced that Brian Wilson has joined the company as Vice President of Sales. In this role, he will direct Upland’s global field and inside sales force in aligning clients’ business goals with Upland’s family of best-of-breed applications.
Brian comes to Upland with over twelve years of enterprise technology sales experience. Most recently, he was a Vice President of Sales at Innotas, a cloud provider of project and portfolio management (PPM) software.
“Brian’s experience in the cloud PPM space, proven sales management track record, and focus on a consultative, customer-centric approach will be tremendous assets in helping us achieve our organic growth goals,” commented Ludwig Melik, President of Upland Software. “We are thrilled to have him on the team. One of the exciting aspects of the Upland vision is that it allows us to attract top talent, drawn by the opportunities and challenges of creating the first cloud project, portfolio, and work management provider with real scale.”
Upland’s strategy is to build a family of cloud products that address a comprehensive range of PPM needs from strategic planning to work execution, whether in IT or across the business, managing projects or ad hoc work, or focused on “top-down” portfolio analysis or “bottom-up” productivity. Cloud software has transformed the market with its rapid speed-to-value, scalability, low total cost of ownership, and reduced financial risk, as well as its inherent ability to deliver a real-time data integration and collaboration platform to distributed workforces on a local or global scale. Bringing together strong, established cloud products not only creates economies of scale, but also opportunities to leverage talent, product innovation, and best practices across the Upland family of applications.
“What drew me to Upland are the convictions we share about the transformative potential of project, portfolio, and work management as a business discipline; the power of a cloud delivery model; and the integral role of the sales process in laying the foundations for long-term customer success,” Brian Wilson explained. “I am also excited to work with such a seasoned, talented sales team. It’s great to be on board.”
Prior to Innotas, Brian held various sales and management positions at Seagate Technology and Fujitsu Computer Products. He holds a Bachelor’s degree from the University of California, Davis in Communication with a minor in Managerial Economics.
