SAN JOSE, Calif. June 16 , 2020 -- Xactly, the leading innovator of cloud-based Sales Performance Management (SPM) software, today announced that Jamie Anderson has been hired as the company’s new Chief Sales Officer.

In his new role, Jamie will lead Xactly's global efforts to grow sales, increase profitability and enhance operating efficiency for the world’s top sales organizations.
