Artesian Solutions, a provider of cloud-based Social CRM and brand surveillance software, has today announced the election of Dr. Steve Garnett as chairman of its board of directors.
Garnett, chairman of Europe at salesforce.com, said: “Artesian is certainly the company to watch in the Social CRM software space. I have watched the company grow, establish a large number of customers very quickly and deliver significant customer success, a key attribute of a SaaS business. I’m very confident in Artesian’s future, as it is clear to me the business delivers commercially valuable insight that can change the way large UK enterprises engage with their customers, for the better. I’m excited by Artesian’s vision, its team and I am really looking forward to helping the company on its journey.”
Andrew Yates, Artesian’s chief executive officer and co-founder, said: “As chairman of our board of directors, Dr. Steve Garnett will help steer and support Artesian’s ambitious plans. His proven experience in transforming early stage businesses into some of the world’s most successful software companies will be hugely beneficial to us, and also our customers. There are many challenges associated with scaling-up a business – especially when you are already experiencing 200% year-on-year growth – so I’m delighted that Dr. Garnett will help guide Artesian during this very exciting era of Social Business.”
