Workday has promoted two senior execs to new roles. The company, which provides enterprise cloud applications for finance and human resources has elevated Doug Robinson to Co-President and Barbara Larson to CFO.

Robinson, who had served as the company’s EVP of Global Sales, will assume his new post effective immediately. He will work alongside Co-President Robynne Sisco to enhance the company’s global sales organization.

Larson currently works as the company’s SVP of Accounting, Tax, and Treasury and won’t begin her new job until February 2022. When she steps into her new office next year, she will fall under Sisco in Workday’s org chart and lead the company’s accounting, tax, treasury, planning, and investor relations functions.

“I’m confident that Barbara, with her vast experience across corporate finance and financial products, and Doug, with his deep knowledge of the market and industry needs, will help accelerate our growth and inspire our teams as we scale,” Workday Chairman and Co-CEO Aneel Bhusri stated in the company's announcement.

News of the duo’s promotions comes on the back of a strong quarter from Workday, which reported total revenues of $1.33 billion, up 20.0% year-on-year. The company also just announced it will acquire external workforce management firm VNDLY for $510 million to provide clients with a single unified system of record to manage their entire workforce.
