NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sisense, the leader in simplifying business analytics for complex data, today announces two new strategic hires to support the company’s continued global expansion. Both cloud industry veterans, Sunil Sampat and Eyal Tocker join Sisense as VP of Enterprise Sales and VP of EMEA and APAC, respectively. The new executive hires support Sisense’s continued growth in the first quarter of 2017, and notable expansion in the enterprise market with new Fortune Global 500 clients.
Sunil Sampat, an industry veteran with 20 years of experience in sales leadership roles at leading cloud companies such as Okta and Dyn (acquired by Oracle), has joined as VP of Enterprise Sales to support Sisense’s continued penetration and expansion into the enterprise market.
Another seasoned cloud leader, Eyal Tocker, joins the Sisense team as VP of EMEA and APAC. Tocker is responsible for driving international growth for the company with a strong background within the EMEA and APAC markets. In his most recent role, Tocker served as VP of International Sales at public company Imperva Incapsula, where he successfully built and scaled the international side of the company’s business, doubling the business year-over-year.
The appointments of Sampat and Tocker come on the heels of strong momentum in early 2017, with the company seeing adoption by leading cloud and traditional Fortune 500 companies as well as small to mid-sized businesses.
With the recent growth, the company is also celebrating the move to three new and expanded offices in New York City, Tel Aviv and Scottsdale, Arizona. The offices have been custom-designed to reflect the innovative DNA of the company and purpose-built to foster collaboration amongst and between the global locations.
