Today we announced that David Faugno, former Executive Vice President at Qualtrics, has joined our Advisory Board at SeekOut. This addition comes at an exciting time in our industry where finding and engaging talent is top of mind for companies everywhere.
“I am delighted to welcome David Faugno to our Advisory Board,” said Anoop Gupta, CEO and Co-Founder at SeekOut. “David has amazing experience, including his time at Qualtrics, where he helped scale the company to a global business doing over $1B in revenue and a leader in Employee Experience (EX). As SeekOut continues its hyper-growth journey, we will benefit tremendously from David’s experience in scaling companies.”
David has more than 25 years of global financial and business operations experience across multiple technology sectors. At Qualtrics, he developed a passion for engagement after seeing the platform’s ability to help customers tune into and optimize the experiences of their teams first hand.
“Nothing matters in business more than people, and I am excited to help the great team at SeekOut scale the business and deliver to customers the help they need to build and grow their own teams,” said David Faugno. “SeekOut is uniquely positioned to leverage its incredible momentum to define and lead the emerging Enterprise Talent Optimization category, while improving the careers and lives of many from diverse backgrounds.”
David’s extensive experience and track record with M&A, global business operations, and strategic leadership has earned him accolades, such as 2012 Francisco Partners portfolio CFO of the Year and 2013 Silicon Valley Business Journal CFO of the Year as CFO of Barracuda Networks (CUDA). David currently sits on additional advisory and corporate boards as Audit Committee Chair at Meltwater (MWTR), Browserstack and Eagle Eye Networks, and as an advisor to SentinelOne (S), and 1Password. He also serves as a Venture Partner at Accel.
We are excited to welcome David to the SeekOut team as we continue to invest in creating products that help companies engage and grow their talent.
