Insight Venture Partners Adds Experienced Senior SaaS Executives to Accelerate Growth and Innovation at Conga
Tuesday, November 10, 2015
Broomfield, Colo., Nov. 10, 2015 — Conga®, developers of the Conga Suite for Salesforce, today announced the appointment of two senior executives to drive the growth strategy of the company and broaden the range of solutions it offers.
Matthew J. Schiltz, with 20 years of CEO experience in the SaaS, cloud and technology sectors, joins Conga as its new CEO. Bob DeSantis, former chief revenue officer of several technology companies, assumes the role of COO. Both will leverage their years of experience to guide Conga to its next level of success. Schiltz and DeSantis join at a pivotal time for the company, as earlier this year Conga secured a $70 million investment from Insight Venture Partners to fuel growth, product development and expansion into enterprise accounts.
Conga’s mission-critical document generation and reporting applications fully automate tedious manual processes, delivering significant cost savings, reducing errors and increasing velocity for their customers. Conga Composer has been on the Salesforce AppExchange for eight years.
“Conga is an amazing company, and I am really excited that we are going to take it to the next level,” says Schiltz. “When I was CEO of DocuSign we worked closely with the Conga team, and I was always impressed with the quality of their solutions and their outstanding customer satisfaction.”
Conga is the latest growth-stage cloud company that Schiltz and DeSantis have led – the duo first worked together building DocuSign, the multi-billion dollar global leader of the electronic signatures market. Most recently they accelerated Blue Box Group into a leading private cloud provider, which is now the core technology of IBM’s OpenStack cloud strategy. Prior to Blue Box Group, Schiltz and DeSantis led Tier 3, which is now the product and operations solution of CenturyLink Cloud.
“Matt and Bob have an impressive track record in growing cloud and SaaS companies like Conga, and we could not be more excited to welcome them to the Insight portfolio,” says Nikitas Koutoupes, managing director at Insight Venture Partners.
Co-founders Mark Whiteside and Michael Markham will transition their duties to Schiltz and DeSantis and will remain on the board of Conga.
