Salesforce announced that it is promoting Bret Taylor to president and chief operating officer of the company. Taylor has been the company’s president and chief product officer since November 2017. He joined Salesforce in 2016 when the company acquired Quip, the cloud-based word processing app that he co-founded with ex-Google tech lead Kevin Gibbs in 2012, for a reported $750 million. Prior to Quip, Taylor was chief technology officer of Facebook which acquired FriendFeed, the social networking company that he co-founded with a group of former Google employees. In his new position, Taylor will oversee Salesforce’s global product vision, engineering, security, marketing and communications, and report to chairman Marc Benioff. TechCrunch spoke to Brent Leary, founder at CRM Essentials, who said that the announcement could be part of a succession plan for Benioff and co-CEO Keith Block whenever they decide to move on.
