In his role, Schodorf will provide counsel and support around Egnyte’s short-term and long-term sales strategy, including hiring, execution, and revenue growth.
“Tom is not only a tremendous sales leader with an outstanding track record, he is a high-quality person that is grounded in a value system that aligns with what we have built at Egnyte,” said Vineet Jain, CEO and co-founder at Egnyte. “We believe Tom is the perfect fit to help guide our company, most notably the sales organization, as we expand our business and build upon the relationships we’ve made with our 14,000+ customers worldwide.”
Schodorf started his 35-year sales career at IBM, going on to spend seventeen years at BMC Software where he finished his tenure as the VP/GM of their Identify Business Unit. Most recently Schodorf spent five years as the SVP of Sales and Field Operations at Splunk. He holds an MBA from the University of Dayton as well as a Bachelor’s in Finance from Ohio State University.
“Egnyte has been an atypical SaaS company to this point, one that prides itself on delivering a world-class product and customer experience without a ‘growth-at-any-cost’ model, which has made them on of the hottest private companies on the market today,” said Tom Schodorf, the newest member of Egnyte’s Board of Directors. “I am honored to join Egnyte at such an exciting time, with cloud adoption at an all-time high and a massive market opportunity in front of us. I look forward to helping Egnyte accelerate the growth of their sales organization and scale their business operations, getting their platform in the hands of millions of users worldwide.”
