John Kwiatkowski to Serve as Company’s Senior Global Sales Executive
INDIANAPOLIS (Jan. 13, 2016) – TinderBox, a leader in sales productivity technologies, announced today that former Salesforce and ExactTarget sales veteran John Kwiatkowski has joined the company as vice president of enterprise sales.
Kwiatkowski joins the company after more than 10 years at ExactTarget and Salesforce where he led many of the most strategic sales pursuits.
“John is proven sales leader who played a vital role in fueling ExactTarget’s historic growth and successful evolution into a multi-product enterprise software leader,” said Dustin Sapp, TinderBox co-founder and chief executive officer. “John’s addition brings more than a decade of successful sales experience to our team and provides a proven approach to further accelerate our success with many of the world’s leading companies.”
While at ExactTarget and Salesforce, Kwiatkowski exceeded sales quota nine consecutive years and delivered sales results that placed him among the company’s top five sales performers annually. His repeated success earned him the honor of ExactTarget’s global sales executive of the year in 2011.
“John’s strong track record of performance and his innate ability to lead make him an ideal choice to lead TinderBox’s enterprise selling team,” said Scott Dorsey, TinderBox chairman and ExactTarget co-founder. “John is now incredibly well-positioned to bring together his years of sales performance, leadership and the power of TinderBox to enable sales teams around the world to improve sales productivity and increase results.”
