Salesforce taps Microsoft CRM boss Robert Stutz
Salesforce has poached Microsoft Dynamics's corporate vice-president Robert Stutz to head up its Analytics Cloud.
Having worked for the computing giant since 2012, Stutz is currently at the helm of its CRM business apps division, but is set to jump ship just before the release of its 2016 suite.
A veteran of both SAP and Oracle – serving as the former's vice-president of industry solutions for five years and the latter's vice-president of Siebel, he will undertake the role of chief analytics officer at Salesforce.
Commenting on the appointment, Salesforce's president of products Alex Dayon said: "Bob not only has deep enterprise software experience, he's also a proven leader who'll drive the vision and execution for the Analytics Cloud as we build it into a billion-dollar business for Salesforce."
