ThousandEyes Names Former Zscaler, VMware, Citrix Sales Leader Matt Piercy as VP of EMEA Sales
ThousandEyes, the Internet and Cloud Intelligence company, announced the hiring of enterprise software veteran Matt Piercy as vice president of EMEA sales to lead executive engagement and strategic partnership initiatives in the region and scale a high-performance, people-centric sales organization.
“Optimizing the Digital Experience for customers, partners and employees is a strategic priority for CIOs at high-performing organizations. The service delivery channels for these important interactions leverage the Internet as a critical dependency, which is driving significant demand for the visibility and intelligence that ThousandEyes provides,” said Paul Kizakevich, senior vice president of global sales at ThousandEyes. “We are excited to have Matt Piercy join our team to ensure our customers and partners can successfully navigate this changing landscape, while scaling our internal operations to support market demand.”
With more than 25 years of sales and general management experience in EMEA, leading customer-centric organizations both pre- and post-IPO at Zscaler and VMware, Piercy is a trusted leader known for his ability to build and scale high-performance sales organizations at disruptive enterprise technology companies. Under his leadership, Zscaler EMEA operations accounted for approximately half of the company’s global revenue as he built an organization to support customers in 16 countries, helping establish the company as a market leader in cloud security.
“I’ve seen firsthand the pain that global enterprises suffer when they move to the cloud, because as they gain agility, they trade off visibility and control of their services delivered to customers and employees,” said Piercy. “I’m thrilled to join ThousandEyes to help businesses navigate today’s increasingly complex digital landscape and to finally gain the visibility and intelligence they need to deliver better digital experiences and maximize their cloud investments.”
