AUSTIN, Texas A Cloud Guru ("ACG") today announced that Katie Bullard has joined the organization as President and will lead the company’s growth acceleration efforts and be responsible for sales, marketing, customer success, and partnership operations.

Most recently, Bullard was President at DiscoverOrg / Zoominfo and was named one of the 50 most powerful women in technology in 2019 by the National Diversity Council and a Top 20 Women in Business to Watch in 2018 by SLMA.

“Katie brings years of deep industry expertise successfully scaling and leading high growth technology businesses, and will be a fantastic addition to senior leadership team," said Sam Kroonenburg, co-founder and CEO of ACG. "Katie’s experience leading global companies, driving strategic vision, and executing with operational rigor will be invaluable to ACG as we continue to scale and grow.”

Bullard brings to ACG a 15-year proven track record of driving transformative growth, sustained operational excellence, and customer-centric culture. In her last 3 roles at Accruent, Mitratech, and DiscoverOrg / ZoomInfo, she helped lead revenue growth at each one from under $50m to well over $100m; most recently driving DiscoverOrg’s growth from under $60m to almost $400m in 3 years.

Bullard says, “I am so fortunate to join the talented ACG team at this momentous time in their growth. I’ve never seen a company that has done such a phenomenal job creating massive customer affinity and value in such a short period of time, and I’m looking forward to helping to teach the world to cloud.”
