Automation Anywhere Names Ferguson CRO

RPA technology provider Automation Anywhere continues to tap enterprise software veterans for senior leadership positions.

The San Jose, Calif.-based company recently added Rob Ferguson as its chief revenue officer. Ferguson comes to Automation Anywhere from Salesforce where he served for a decade in sales roles for both North America and other global markets. Prior to Salesforce, Ferguson had sales-related stints at Oracle, Sybase and PTC.

“The promise of automation is to empower every team and every employee with more time to solve problems, build relationships, and drive business success,” said Mihir Shukla, CEO and co-founder of Automation Anywhere. “Rob is joining Automation Anywhere at a pivotal moment when automation and digital workers have become core to business transformation, and he will be the change agent to help companies transform the way they work.”

Effective July 1, Ferguson will assume responsibility for leading Automation Anywhere’s global sales efforts.
