SAN MATEO, CA — February 6, 2017 — Engagio, a leader in the rapidly growing “Account Based Everything” revolution, today announced that technology and financial industry veteran Fred Ball has joined the company’s board of directors. A highly respected financial and business management executive, Ball recently served as EVP and Chief Administrative Officer of Marketo, and was the company’s CFO when it went public in 2013.
Ball joins Engagio’s board as the company has been expanding its position as a leading provider of account-based marketing and sales solutions since its founding in 2015. In his new board member role, Ball will focus on helping Engagio accelerate its rapid growth while strengthening the company’s culture of empowerment, continuous learning and innovation.
“We are thrilled to have Fred Ball join our board and look forward to benefiting from his deep experience and unique perspective in building and operating a category-leading technology company,” said Jon Miller, founder and CEO of Engagio. “Fred is not only a world class financial and management executive, but he also understands the importance of culture to creating a company that truly will go the distance. I personally look forward to working closely with Fred on a broad range of strategic, financial and cultural issues and opportunities for Engagio.”
“I am very excited to join Engagio’s board at this important moment in the company’s evolution,” said Ball. “I’ve had the pleasure of knowing and working with Jon since my days at Marketo. He is an exceptional visionary in how technology can revolutionize marketing and sales, but his plans for Engagio are even bigger than that. Under Jon’s leadership, Engagio is innovating powerful new workflow solutions that help companies engage, activate and grow their vital relationships. This is indeed an exciting time to be a part of the Engagio team.”
In addition to his recent roles at Marketo, Ball has held senior financial leadership positions with other major technology companies, including Webroot Software, BigBand Networks, Borland Software and KLA Tencor.
