Domo Announces Mark Dillon As VP, Channels
SILICON SLOPES, Utah – September 18, 2012 – Today Domo, a new software-as-a-service (SaaS) venture started by Omniture co-founder and former CEO Josh James to redefine the business intelligence (BI) market, announced that Mark Dillon has joined the company as vice president, channels.
Dillon brings more than 20 years in software sales to Domo, with more than a dozen years in software-as-a-service (SaaS). Most recently, Dillon served as vice president of worldwide channel sales at Adobe Systems, following six years with Omniture. There he built the company’s global partner sales organization, working with top agencies, system integrators and technology partners.
Under Dillon’s leadership, Omniture’s channels program was awarded a 2008 Five Gold-Star Ranking by VARBusiness. In 2009, Dillon was named a VARBusiness Channel Chief for his leadership in delivering the first partner certification and training program in the web analytics space.

This is the opportune time for Domo. Domo is addressing a huge pain point in the marketplace and I’m looking forward to using my channels experience to strategically accelerate Domo’s growth.”
