As CTO, Allphin will leverage his impressive track record in the world of software-as-a-service (SaaS) to help guide InsideSales.com's advancements in AI-fueled sales acceleration infrastructure operations. Sait, who has worked with InsideSales.com for the last eight months as an executive advisor in growth, marketing and strategy and positioning, will now lead cross-company growth initiatives, including product strategy, global marketing, product marketing and driving the company’s go-to-market strategy.
“Having these proven experts in business and technology as part of our executive team is already paying huge dividends, ensuring our customers get the right solutions to accelerate their growth,” said Dave Elkington, CEO of InsideSales.com. “Both Ryan and Suaad bring deep experience to help us on our mission to be the leader in the AI-fueled sales acceleration industry.”

While at McAfee, Allphin created and ran several segments, including the company's flagship endpoint management platform (#1 position in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant), growing it to over $800 million and supporting over 60 million endpoints. Allphin replaces Steve Brain, who will focus on earlier stage product development at another technology company.
