SAN MATEO, Calif.—July 13, 2015—NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP and omnichannel commerce software suites, today announced that it has appointed Frank Iannotti as the Senior Vice President of Enterprise Accounts and Doug Kennedy as the Vice President of Global System Integrators. Veterans of the enterprise software industry, Iannotti and Kennedy will be responsible for strategy and alignment across enterprise sales and partnerships with global systems integrators, building off the strong momentum that NetSuite has seen in the sector as a growing number of enterprise businesses, including American Express Global Business Travel, Shaw Industries, TGI Fridays and HP Software, turn to NetSuite's leading cloud platform.
"Both Frank and Doug bring a wealth of industry knowledge and expertise in enterprise sales and global partnerships that NetSuite needs as it enters its next phase of growth," said Mike Arntz, SVP of Sales Americas. "To bring in just one of them would be a tremendous addition to the NetSuite team, but the chance to bring two accomplished executives like this is a great opportunity for the company."
Iannotti has more than 20 years of management experience in the technology sector in a variety of leadership roles and joins NetSuite from Salesforce.com, where he was the Area Vice President for Enterprise Accounts. Iannotti has also served in senior sales leadership positions at SAP Americas and PeopleSoft, where he oversaw highly successful enterprise sales teams. At NetSuite, Iannotti will be responsible for driving growth among NetSuite's base of enterprise customers.
"In my years in the industry, I've seen firsthand NetSuite's amazing growth rate and a rapidly growing roster of enterprise customers," Iannotti said. "I'm looking forward to being a part of that growth and contributing to NetSuite's next chapter."
Kennedy comes to NetSuite from Microsoft, where he managed channel operations for Microsoft's Dynamics applications business. He has worked in the computing industry for 29 years and held several executive and senior positions at both Microsoft and Oracle, leading a wide variety of programs and initiatives that span partnering, channels, sales, marketing, customer lifecycle management and customer/partner support services. At NetSuite, Kennedy will be responsible for extending and managing NetSuite's relationships with global system integrators (GSIs).
"Global Systems Integrators are increasingly discovering the agility, scalability and value that cloud-based applications can bring to their customers," Kennedy said.
