Pipefy Announces Two New Executive Leaders to Continue Its Focus on Customers and Grow the Company’s Global Footprint
SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pipefy, the business process management solution that empowers “doers” to build their own automated workflows and transform the way they work, today announced that Rahim Walker, former executive at Planview and SurveyMonkey, has joined Pipefy as Vice President of Sales, USA, and Kiko Guimaraes, formerly of Amazon Web Services and Red Hat, as Vice President of Enterprise Sales, LATAM. As executive members of the team, Walker and Kiko will report to Pipefy’s President and COO, Ananth Avva. x“Rahim and Kiko are both proven leaders whose personal values align seamlessly with Pipefy’s corporate standard,” said Avva. “They share similar track records of taking a ‘client-first’ approach to sales strategies, growing lasting customer relationships and accelerating growth opportunities in nascent markets. Both are a great fit for Pipefy and I’m happy to have them on board.” Walker brings to Pipefy nearly 10 years of senior leadership experience in dynamic, hypergrowth software companies where he developed a strong track record of building high-performance sales teams and collaborative client partnerships resulting in accretive shareholder value creation. “Pipefy is a natural fit so I’m honored to lead the next chapter of our journey in partnership with Ananth,” said Walker. “Simply put, we have a phenomenal opportunity to support underserved customers in dire need, citizen developers and business process owners who’ve been forced to cobble together manual workflows within rigid, inflexible and costly legacy systems. The pace of business transformation and customer expectations, both internal and external, is so accelerated the term ‘agile’ almost doesn’t do their work life justice. Pipefy is poised to become the defacto platform and standard upon which these “doers” can design and create more nimble, responsive and frictionless experiences to coordinate and engage their end-to-end enterprise.” Kiko brings more than 20 years of leadership experience representing foreign companies in Brazil and the broader LATAM region, where he has been responsible for direct and indirect sales management, revenue, quality of service, and customer satisfaction. “After a long history at larger companies, it is an honor to join Pipefy - a company that has established a new paradigm helping enterprise customers,” said Kiko. “As Sales Executives, we're constantly obliged to manage expectations and realities with the highest of standards. My focus at Pipefy will be aligning our corporate values to a long-term vision, taking Pipefy’s sales to a new level. I’m thrilled to support a great organization focused on solving challenges for customers in an extremely agile and affordable way.
