SupportLogic, the world’s first continuous Service Experience (SX) platform for customer support and service teams, today announced the appointments of John Kelly as Chief Revenue Officer and Sreeni Iyer as VP of Engineering.
Both Kelly and Iyer join SupportLogic as it continues to gain market traction with enterprises looking to protect customer revenue by reducing churn and support escalations through AI-based detection and use of customer signals that directly improve the service experience.
John Kelly has led successful, high-growth sales teams as a Chief Revenue Officer at both scale-up SaaS businesses and large global enterprises. Over the past decade, he has held Chief Revenue Officer roles at Hired, InsideView, and Findly, and prior was the Chief Operating Officer at Baynote. Previously, he was a senior executive leader at Oracle and SAP, personally leading multi billion-dollar global sales, customer support and operations teams.

He has held CTO and VPE positions at successful AI and big data SaaS startups such as Wiser Solutions, Levadata, Slamdata and Precog. Prior to that he held management positions directing software infrastructure and platform development efforts at Walmart, Shutterfly, and Schlumberger.

“John and Sreeni both bring tremendous leadership and domain experience to SupportLogic. On the heels of a fantastic commercial growth year, we are continuing to strengthen and invest in both our product and our go-to-market strategies,” said Krishna Raj Raja, SupportLogic Founder and CEO. “We have been fortunate to add seasoned executives every quarter over the past year and both John and Sreeni greatly strengthen our team and execution ability in 2021 and beyond.”
“I am excited to join SupportLogic to lead our commercial growth efforts. Beyond fixing product issues, support and success teams are the first stop for ensuring customer satisfaction, retention and growth. In my experience leading large global support teams, customer escalations and case backlog are two critical business issues,” said John Kelly, Supportlogic Chief Revenue Officer. “SupportLogic uniquely addresses both of these challenges, allowing our customers to get in front of their business. The impact is immediate and measurable in key areas such as retention (churn), CSAT scores, and team productivity. I am impressed with our strong customer roster, executive team and investors.”
“Unstructured data exceeds structured data by orders of magnitude. SupportLogic is a game changer in delivering predictions and intelligent recommendations with explainability,” said Sreeni Iyer, SupportLogic VP Engineering. “We are quickly evolving our expertise in processing actionable signals and maximizing signal-to-noise ratio to enable a more proactive approach to customer support and service.”
