October 7, 2021 — Sisense, the leading AI-driven cloud platform for infusing analytics everywhere, today announced it has hired Paul Scholey as Vice President of International Sales and Kristina Agassi as General Counsel.
The appointments come in the midst of surging growth for the company, which now has $140 million in annual recurring revenue (ARR), 75% attributed to its infusing analytics strategy. The company is seeing 30% growth in targeted strategic accounts helping the 1B global knowledge workers that need to go beyond the dashboard and embed insights into their customer and employee-facing apps and workflows.
According to Gartner®, 51 percent of global knowledge workers1 are expected to work remotely by the end of 2021, and with more than 1B global knowledge workers in different places using different tools and apps to do their jobs, demand has skyrocketed for more personalized and customized analytics that deliver actionable intelligence without disrupting daily workflows.
“Thousands of companies have turned to the Sisense Fusion platform to transform their business and product offerings with AI-powered, infused insights that enable both employees and customers to make data-driven decisions,” said Amir Orad, CEO of Sisense. “Our appointment of Paul and Kristina comes at a time of dynamic growth and further expands our mission to help businesses drive more value to their customers.”
Scholey leads Sisense’s international sales, tapping his extensive experience in business intelligence (BI) and SaaS with a focus on growing and scaling early- to mid-stage SaaS businesses. Previously, he served as VP and GM of International Sales at BlueJeans, where he scaled the international business across Europe, Asia and Japan with local offices and teams across those regions. Before that, he ran the analytics businesses of Oracle in the UK, as well as served as VP of International at Pentaho in the UK, where he grew Pentaho’s international business 500% in five years.
“I am energized to join the Sisense team, so I can further expand global business and build a world class team that supports our customers to break analytic barriers and win in their respective markets,” said Paul Scholey as Vice President of International Sales.
As General Counsel, Agassi oversees Sisense’s legal, compliance and governance functions, drawing on over a dozen years of experience in the legal field. Previously, she was Group VP and Deputy General Counsel at Zeta, a global marketing software-as-a-service (SaaS) company with a data-driven cloud platform, leading the company through its IPO and managing acquisitions and divestitures, international operations, commercial transactions, financings, and more.
