Today marks a significant milestone in the journey of Xactly. After 19 incredible years of leadership, we celebrate our founder, Chris Cabrera, as he retires from his position as Xactly’s CEO. While I am honored to be the next CEO of Xactly, it is impossible to take on such a role without first expressing my deepest gratitude. We thank you Chris for founding and building an amazing organization that has positively impacted so many people both professionally and personally. I look forward to working together as you continue your role as a valued member of our Board of Directors.

To our loyal customers: your successes and challenges steer our innovation and fuel our dedication to excellence. We have built Xactly on the foundation of your trust and by listening to your needs. This will not change. We will continue our investments in groundbreaking AI technologies leveraging our unique data assets. We aim to deliver solutions that exceed your expectations, and we will not waver in our commitment to delivering exceptional customer service.

To our valued partners: you are the allies who have supported us, solving customer challenges and amplifying our reach. We have worked together to push boundaries and achieve outcomes we could not have realized alone. We look forward to our continued collaboration and building our partnerships with a focus on transparency and mutual success.

And last, but certainly not least, to the amazing Xactly team: your talent, dedication, and passion have been the backbone of our phenomenal growth over the years. I hope you take pride in your contributions which have revolutionized the Sales Performance Management industry with revenue intelligence. I have personally witnessed your brilliance, from the customer-centricity of our go-to-market, services, success, and support teams to the innovative spark of the R&D organization to the unwavering commitment of our finance and HR teams. Your spirit has enabled our success, and I will count on that same spirit to drive our future innovation and growth.

This transition is not just about me stepping into a new role, it is about Xactly entering a new era of growth and impact. We will build on the foundation laid by Chris while embracing the opportunities that lie ahead. Together, we will write the next chapter filled with innovation, customer-centricity, and a relentless pursuit of building an enduring organization that supports world-class revenue performance for our customers.

Thank you for being a part of this journey. I look forward to working with everyone in the Xactly ecosystem to pioneer our path forward while honoring the rich history of this great company.
