PALO ALTO, Calif., Sept. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Jive Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: JIVE) today named David Puglia as its new chief marketing officer (CMO). Puglia will lead the company's worldwide marketing strategies, including branding, end-to-end marketing functions, product marketing, corporate communications and other go-to-market initiatives. He is joining Jive's seasoned executive team to further advance the company's vision of helping people work better together in today's digital world with colleagues, customers and partners.
"We're on a transformational journey at Jive, and making significant progress on the company's priorities. With David on board, we'll accelerate go-to-market execution by tightly integrating our marketing efforts and further align them with the company's business strategy," said Elisa Steele, CEO of Jive Software. "As a four-time CMO, David has solid experience and innovative approaches to take Jive's strategies to the next level and maximize the impact of our skilled team and valuable assets."
Puglia has more than twenty years of leadership experience in enterprise technology, with an impressive track record of effectively delivering a company's brand and vision to the market, including tenures at Alcatel-Lucent, RSA/EMC and Oracle. He will join Jive October 5 and report directly to Steele.
"It's rare to find a software company that truly recognizes the latent business value inherent in putting people at the center of their solutions, as opposed to focusing only on the technology. As a previous Jive user myself, I've seen first-hand how that mindset is turning online communities into an indisputable must-have for businesses of all shapes and sizes," said Puglia. "Jive has proven time and time again – at companies like Adidas, Credit Suisse, DIRECTV, Go Daddy and Thomson Reuters – how powerful it is to unlock the insights of employees, partners and customers by giving them one easy place to connect, communicate and collaborate."
