Artificial intelligence (AI) technology company Evisort has appointed Silicon Valley tech sales veteran Mark Stephenson as Chief Customer Officer (CCO), a newly-created position.
The addition of Mark to the Evisort C-Suite is a bold strategic move for the company, further sharpening its focus on providing successful outcomes for corporate and legal customers.
Mark’s hire comes one month after Evisort closed a $15 million Series A funding round led by Vertex Ventures and M12, Microsoft’s venture fund, with participation by Amity Ventures and Serra Ventures. Evisort’s business objectives are to scale to $100 million in annual recurring revenue and maximize profitability, and Mark’s leadership will be essential in achieving these goals.
Overseeing marketing, sales and customer success, Mark will have complete accountability to build strategy and execution around the full customer lifecycle. He will help clients optimize use of Evisort’s “google for contracts” software-as-a-service (SaaS) contract analytics solution which has embedded AI capability to read and understand meaning in legal documents like contracts. Mark will help clients create greater agility and effectiveness around how contracts and legal documents are generated, approved, processed and renewed.
Mark has over 25 years of sales leadership expertise in technology solution sales at high-growth, venture-backed firms as well as at scale enterprises such as Cisco and HP. Prior to joining Evisort, he and his team at Avi Networks rapidly scaled the business until the company’s successful acquisition by VMware in 2019.
“Uniquely qualified for the CCO position, Mark will ensure a world-class experience for Evisort customers as we evolve from a deep research company to a technology business,” remarked Jerry Ting, CEO and founder of Evisort. “Mark understands how to lead teams to translate technologies like ours into compelling business value for clients. He will be Evisort’s dedicated customer advocate and a great leader for our sales, marketing and customer success teams.”
“I look forward to working with Evisort’s leadership to build a world-class team and establish lasting customer relationships,” said Mark. “My CCO role underscores Evisort’s total focus on providing new AI technology enablement for contracts. Our mission is not to sell per se, but instead to provide a valued service to rapidly drive business productivity around contracting. Evisort can deliver contracts at the speed of business - improved business productivity awaits!”
