“Our customers are at the forefront of everything we do at AuditBoard, so I’m excited to welcome experienced customer-centric leaders like Tom and Chris to the executive team,” said Mr. Arnold. “As the leaders of our customer-facing teams, they’ll ensure that we continue to focus on creating customer value and a world-class experience for our current and future customers as we scale.”

Prior to joining AuditBoard, he was Head of Global Customer Success, Cloud Security at Cisco, where he scaled its team from 20 to more than 200, and helped to drive annual revenue growth from $30M to more than $400M.
“AuditBoard is committed at its core to the success of their customers, from creating a purpose-built platform for enterprise audit, risk, and compliance teams to educating those teams on how to fully leverage the platform’s power,” said Mr. Doell. “That commitment resonates deeply with me, and I’m excited about scaling and optimizing the customer success function to accelerate the company’s growth.”
