Josh James to Join InsideSales.com Board of Directors
We were very excited to hear Josh James joined the Board of Directors of our client InsideSales.com today. James, founder and CEO of Domo, is the leader who founded and operated Omniture until its acquisition by Adobe for $1.8 billion. James is also an investor in InsideSales.com and took part in the company’s last funding round led by Hummer Winblad Venture Partners and other SaaS industry leaders.
InsideSales.com is the leading sales automation and analytics platform for inside sales professionals. Its InsideSales.com platform supports a High Velocity Sales model enabling sales reps to respond to Internet generated leads in five minutes or less. The product was designed for B2B and high-end B2C sales environments. It has been one of the most popular applications on the salesforce.com AppExchange for over five years.
In regards to the Board move, James said, InsideSales.com is bringing an entirely new experience to sales automation by integrating gamification, social media and texting into their platform. We’ve seen what InsideSales.com can do to shorten Domo’s own sales cycles. I’m excited to see InsideSales.com continue to deliver new value to its growing customer base. I’ve known Dave Elkington for a long time and I look forward to sharing more insights with him and his team over the coming years as they build their business.
In 1996, James co-founded the first enterprise SaaS business, Omniture; took it public in 2006; and sold it to Adobe in 2009. It was the number one returning venture investment out of 1,008 venture capital investments in 2004. In 2010, James started SaaS-based Domo to redefine the business intelligence market and transform the way business is managed. James has been involved with InsideSales.com for several years as a friend and mentor of Dave Elkington, CEO and Founder.
Having Josh more formally involved in the business will be absolutely invaluable. His insights and feedback have helped us build our current momentum,” said Elkington. Josh’s experience building and managing exponential growth will be instrumental in directing our hyper-growth to become the next Utah-based billion-dollar business.
