"We found that 86% of business leaders plan to invest in tools that create a single source of truth for work within their organization," says Andrew Filev, Founder, Wrike. "Powerful work management platforms, like Wrike, bring all teams and work into one place to increase visibility and optimize efficiency. That’s why we’re seeing the demand for work management quickly gain momentum, especially as organizations face the pressures of economic uncertainty. This is a pivotal moment for our company, and Thomas and Brian will be vital additions to our leadership team. Their combined, diverse experience will propel us into our next phase of growth."
Thomas Scott joins Wrike with more than 20 years of experience as a top finance executive at startups and publicly traded companies, including Zebra Technologies, Fetch Robotics, Corning Optical Communications, and Spidercloud. Scott has experience building and leading dispersed teams to help support rapidly growing businesses. At Corning, he led a global team responsible for five acquired business units. Most recently, Scott led Fetch Robotics through its successful exit to Zebra Technologies.
"I’ve worked with a range of high-growth companies in the tech and telecom space over the last 25 years and have helped these organizations launch new technology solutions and scale globally," says Scott. "At Wrike, I’ve been presented with an opportunity to supercharge what they’re doing and bring a must-have platform to market. There’s nothing more exciting than that."
Brian Clark brings a strong track record of spearheading company sales and growth. Clark joins Wrike from InMoment, where he tripled the business as CRO. Prior to that, he was one of the first employees and CRO of SiriusDecisions, where he played a pivotal role in shaping the go-to-market sales and marketing strategies that drove market leadership and significant revenue growth. The success of SiriusDecisions ultimately led to an acquisition by Forrester Research. In this new role as CRO at Wrike, Clark will be responsible for bringing the incredibly diverse and powerful use cases of Wrike to customers and prospects alike via his global, growing sales force.
"I’m thrilled to join Wrike at a time when the company is looking to expand its business to more verticals," said Clark.
