This week we continue our Meet SpringCM series, where we highlight the departments and people driving the growth and success behind SpringCM. Back in June, we introduced you to our sales team.
Today, we’re showcasing our product team. Although small, the product team is responsible for the look and feel of the SpringCM platform. They’ work with other SpringCM departments and customers to improve the customer experience with the platform, keeping useability and design in mind.
The product is constantly evolving, and for the better, thanks to the hard work of the product team.
Since being founded over ten years ago, SpringCM has been rapidly growing over the past couple of years. In fact, in the last year SpringCM has added a new board member, opened an office in San Francisco and has colleagues working in London to help EMEA growth. Everything starts and ends in Chicago, and from the very beginning it has been the central hub for SpringCM.
To showcase our growing team at SpringCM this is the first of a series of blog posts spotlighting the departments and people who continue to bring new innovations to the company.
This week we’re highlighting three members of our sales department, which is made up of over 30 individuals and is continuing to grow. On a daily basis, our sales team is busy engaging with prospects and customers, so we set out to find out what brought them to SpringCM and what motivates them to come to work every day:
We’re excited to announce a new member to the SpringCM Board of Directors.
Salesforce veteran Dan Dal Degan has joined SpringCM to help accelerate the pace of innovation and guide the company’s rapid growth within the Salesforce ecosystem.
“With 30 years of experience leading technology companies, including 11 years during the hyper growth period at Salesforce, Dan is uniquely qualified to help take SpringCM to new market heights,” said Greg Buchholz, CEO of SpringCM. “Dan has a proven track record of building powerhouse companies and his expertise will help us continue to innovate new solutions that elevate our customers’ businesses.”

When he left, the company had more than 12,000 employees and over $4 billion in sales. During his time at Salesforce, Dal Degan started the central region and through his sales efforts was responsible for more than 15% of total worldwide bookings.
