Showpad Appoints Jon Borgese as Chief Marketing Officer
Former Front, LivePerson, and Intermedia exec will strengthen Showpad’s market leadership
Showpad, a global leader in sales enablement technology, has appointed Jon Borgese as its new chief marketing officer (CMO). Jon brings more than 15 years of marketing leadership experience from high-growth tech companies including Front, LivePerson and Intermedia.
As CMO, Jon will be responsible for building on Showpad’s strong foundation in the sales enablement category. This includes improving awareness of Showpad’s Enablement Operation System (eOS™) and corresponding messaging through the lens of customer challenges and pain points.
Most recently, Jon oversaw marketing at Front where he helped drive revenue growth that led to the company’s series D financing round and unicorn valuation. Prior to Front, Jon led marketing and sales development for LivePerson, a publicly-traded Conversational AI company. During his four-year tenure, the company doubled revenue.
“We’re thrilled to have Jon as part of our executive leadership team,” said Hendrik Isebaert, CEO of Showpad. “Jon brings a unique mix of skills and experiences.
