Portland-based Act-On Software, a growth marketing automation platform, hired Gregg Ames as chief commercial officer and Syed Ahmed as senior vice president of engineering, both will report to Act-On CEO Kate Johnson. Ames joins Act-On after driving revenue and sales growth at Marketo, Oracle, and Turning. Ahmed has extensive experience leading engineering and operations teams, most recently as CTO and VP of engineering at Contiq. Ahmed also spent four years leading a high growth period at Tapclicks, a marketing operations start-up. Ames and Ahmed join Act-On as the company looks to continue its growth trajectory and push into new markets as the demand for large businesses to transform to digital-first initiatives continues. The hiring represents another milestone this year following Act-On's announcement of $20 million in growth financing, their unveiling of an automated SMS channel, and the hosting of Growth ‘21, a growth marketing conference.
