Emailvision, a provider of cloud-based solutions for relationship marketing and customer intelligence, has named Brad Wilson as its CEO, succeeding company founder Nick Heys.
Wison spent nearly seven years as the worldwide general manager of Microsoft Dynamics CRM. In that post, he shifted the business to a cloud-first sales and delivery model, launching CRM as Microsoft's first commercial cloud service. Prior to Microsoft, Wilson was vice president of worldwide CRM marketing at Peoplesoft, and vice president of product marketing at marketing vendor Epiphany. Wilson is also a veteran of two Silicon Valley start-ups in the area of real-time analytics.
CRM magazine named him an "Influential Leader" three years in a row (2006-2008) and again in 2010 for his innovative ideas, achievements, and strong leadership in the CRM market.
"I'm proud to be joining a company with great people and industry-leading cloud products," Wilson said in a statement. "Nick has built an outstanding team at Emailvision, with a culture that focuses on product excellence and customer success. I look forward to working closely with them to continue to grow the business around the world."
"As the CEO of Emailvision for the past 13 years, I'm proud to have built one of the largest and fastest growing cloud companies in the world," Heys, said in a statement. "I'm very pleased now to welcome Brad Wilson into the company as the new CEO. His depth of industry experience and his track record in building and running global businesses makes him the right person to lead the next wave of Emailvision's growth."
