Emissary Hires MarTech Veteran, Eric Rosenthal, as Chief Revenue Officer

NEW YORK, March 17, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Emissary, the world's first sales intelligence knowledge network, is thrilled to welcome Eric Rosenthal to the team as Chief Revenue Officer.

Rosenthal comes to Emissary from Networked Insights, and brings deep sales experience at both startups and enterprise brands such as DoubleClick (now part of Google), OpenX, and AOL. And, as a former Emissary client, he has first-hand knowledge of Emissary's impact on navigating the complex sale.

In his new role, Rosenthal will oversee the sales, marketing, and customer success teams, as well as develop the company's overall go-to-market plan and growth strategy.

"What Emissary is doing — radically changing sales intelligence — is game changing," says Rosenthal. "As a former client, when my sellers used an Emissary on their deals, it drastically moved the needle. This is the kind of impact every CRO needs to strengthen their pipeline."

By directly connecting sales reps to former executives who worked at their target account, Emissary offers the most valuable type of sales intelligence — relevant knowledge of the buyer's needs.

With his revenue-boosting track record, seasoned expertise in marketing technology, and experience in growing startups, Rosenthal will be a driving force in leading Emissary's strategy.

"We are thrilled to have Eric join our team," says Emissary founder and CEO David Hammer. "He is a very talented leader with a deep understanding of our market."

Emissary has become a secret weapon for sellers at MarTech and SaaS technology vendors. With their network of executives who have Fortune 1000 company experience, Emissary helps clients like Outbrain, Chartbeat, Dstillery, Curalate, and Reltio sell smarter.

Emissary recently closed a $10 million Series A funding round led by Canaan Partners and G20 Ventures. This follows a previous $2 million seed round of financing from The New York Times, Google Ventures and Nextview Ventures. Emissary is founded by former Google Product Manager David Hammer, where he led the team that developed the renowned Doubleclick Bid Manager ad technology.
