Tomb brings more than 20 years of experience. Before joining Zoom, he was with Google Cloud as the vice president of sales, Google Workspace, SMB, data & analytics, geo enterprises, and security sales.
As the company continues to delve into a multi-product platform that enables communication, hybrid work, and an expanding number of business workflows, Tomb will help in this endeavour of the company.
“Greg is a highly-respected technology industry leader and has deep experience in helping to scale companies at critical junctures. His strategic thinking, can-do attitude, and value of care he brings to customers make him the perfect addition to our strong leadership team,” Yuan said in a statement.
Before joining Google, Tomb was the President of Sales and GTM for SAP’s cloud offerings, including Intelligent Spend, SuccessFactors, Customer Experience, Digital Supply Chain, Concur, as well as SAP Business Technology Platform.
Tomb also served as CEO of Vivido Labs Inc. before SAP and has held management positions at Accenture Consulting and Comergent Technologies Inc. He is also on the Board of Directors of Pure Storage Corporation.
“I strongly believe that Zoom has an impressive foundation with its multi-product platform, and I look forward to the tremendous opportunities ahead to help businesses around the world address their communications and collaboration needs,” said Tomb.
In May, in a bid to bolster its conversational artificial intelligence (AI) and customer support capabilities, Zoom communications has entered into an agreement to acquire Solvvy, a California-based company.
Velchamy Sankarlingam, President of Product and Engineering, Zoom Video Communications said that the addition of Solvvy’s AI and Machine learning technology will help to accelerate Zoom’s contact center solutions.
