Domo Appoints Steve Wellen As Chief Operating Officer
New Operations Role Fortifies Domo’s Customer-Driven Management Team
SILICON SLOPES, Utah – August 27, 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 the appointment of Steve Wellen as chief operating officer (COO).
Wellen brings more than 30 years of global sales, management, and client service experience to Domo. Most recently, Wellen served as vice president of worldwide client services for Adobe Systems, responsible for more than 800 professionals in presales, consulting, training, solution architecture and operations. He joined Adobe from Omniture, where he was part of the team responsible for 100 percent year-over-year growth for five straight years. While at Omniture, Wellen was also responsible for the successful integration of customers and client service teams from a variety of newly acquired companies into Omniture’s business. He started his technology career in enterprise software sales with industry giants SAP, Oracle and Siebel.
“In SaaS, customer retention is at the heart of business success,” said James. “The only way to retain customers is to ensure that we are consistently delivering an amazing experience and new value. Steve is on anyone’s dream team. His operational prowess will be a huge asset as we scale our business and focus on ensuring lifetime customer commitment. After working together for seven years at Omniture, I’m ecstatic to work with him again.”
“Domo is addressing a huge pain point that, to date, traditional enterprise software has been unable to fix,” said Wellen. “I am thrilled to help Josh and the Domo team massively scale operations and serve the overwhelming population of business executives who are looking to get more value from their business data.”
