Moore has served on the ServiceSource Board since November 2016 and has over three decades of strategic, operational and executive leadership experience at world-class technology and services companies, including Cisco Systems, Inc. and Electronic Data Systems (EDS).

With Moore’s transition to Executive Chairman, Bruce Dunlevie, ServiceSource’s lead independent director, will replace Moore in his Board committee roles, including as chair of the compensation committee and member of the audit committee.
Dunnam joined ServiceSource in September 2018 as Executive Vice President responsible for leading the Company’s digital transformation initiatives and working across all functions in the organization to advance ServiceSource’s solution set, service delivery model and client value. She has more than 35 years of experience building and scaling global inside sales and customer success teams for major cloud and software companies. In her expanded role as COO, Dunnam will lead a worldwide team and be accountable for optimizing and standardizing an end-to-end delivery model with best-in-class operational rigor and discipline. Dunnam will continue to report directly to Christopher M. Carrington, CEO of ServiceSource.
“We are very pleased to announce these new appointments, which we believe will improve our execution, drive financial performance and enhance shareholder value,” said Carrington. “We look forward to benefitting from Gary’s deep industry expertise and strategic transformation experience, and we are excited to expand Debbie’s mandate to increase accountability for globally-consistent client outcomes and results.”
Mr. Carrington continued, “We are focused on ensuring that the deep bench of talent we have at both the Board and management level are best positioned to execute our ongoing initiatives and move the Company forward. Of note, together with the appointment of Rich Walker as CFO and Denzil Samuels as Chief Marketing & Growth Officer, we have announced four strategic appointments in the past three months. Combined with our strong existing leadership team, we believe we have the right skills, experience sets and focus to successfully address the challenges and deliver on the opportunities in front of us.”
“During the past two years, I have gotten to know Chris and the management team well and I am excited to now take a more active role as Executive Chairman,” said Moore. “I look forward to providing my input and guidance as the Company continues its strategic transformation. I am confident that our team under Chris’ leadership can improve operational performance and financial outcomes to the benefit of all of our stakeholders.”
“In my time at the Company, I have been continually impressed by ServiceSource’s high-caliber team and developed an even greater appreciation for the Company’s industry leadership and market opportunity,” said Dunnam. “ServiceSource is well-positioned to address the entire B2B digital customer journey experience, helping clients grow closer to their customers in the cloud and subscription economy.”
