Salesforce has experienced some significant executive upheaval so far this year, including the departures of several members of its C-suite.
In January, Stephanie Buscemi left her role as chief marketing officer and former chief financial officer Mark Hawkins retired. Internal candidates replaced them both: Sarah Franklin — best known for founding Salesforce’s online learning platform Trailhead — became the new marketing chief and Amy Weaver shifted from to finance from legal.
In March, former Tableau CEO Adam Selipsky announced plans to leave the company for a role as the CEO of Amazon Web Services, with Tableau product leader Mark Nelson filling his shoes. More recently, Salesforce’s chief equality and recruiting officer Tony Prophet retired after five years at the company, Insider learned.
Salesforce has also seen a number of top execs leave to join startups, including chief medical officer Ashwini Zenooz and Tableau CFO Damon Fletcher.
However, alongside the departures came some new executive additions, too, like new Service Cloud CEO Clara Shih.
CEO Stewart Butterfield is also set to join the company once the $27.7 billion purchase closes at the end of this month.
