The talented workforce and commitment to customer and partner success sets it apart from other global brands. I’m thrilled to join and privileged to have the opportunity to lead the EMEA business during the next phase of growth.”
Smith succeeds Phillip van der Wilt who served in this role from January 2016 to July 2020. During this time, and under van der Wilt’s leadership, the EMEA business grew rapidly and established ServiceNow’s strong foothold across EMEA.
“Many thanks to Philip for his leadership in growing our EMEA region over the past four years and establishing ServiceNow as a strategic partner to many of the world’s leading companies,” said Kevin Haverty, ServiceNow’s Executive Vice President of Worldwide Sales. “With Paul on our team, we are set to continue our momentum and drive the next phase of growth. Paul’s strong experience and exceptional track record across the region will help ensure ServiceNow accelerates our leadership as the partner of choice for C-suite leaders driving digital transformation.”
Smith began his career with Procter and Gamble but soon followed a passion for the technology industry that took him to Microsoft and leadership of a number of innovative start-up businesses. He joined Salesforce in 2012 to lead their EMEA Marketing Cloud business, before going on to lead EMEA Cloud Sales until his appointment as EVP and GM UK&I in February 2019.
