Cloud accounting software veteran Mark Woodhams will be joining BlackLine, Inc. (Nasdaq: BL) as senior vice president of global sales effective July 1st. In his new role, Mr. Woodhams will be responsible for leading BlackLine’s worldwide sales organization as the financial automation software provider continues to transform the way finance and accounting departments work.
A seasoned sales executive in the enterprise software industry, Woodhams has more than 35 years of experience with leading cloud and financial and professional services companies including NetSuite, Oracle, Hyperion, CapGemini and Citicorp.
Woodhams comes to BlackLine from NetSuite where he most recently served as vice president for EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa), overseeing sales and operations in the region for the global cloud ERP and accounting software leader.
“Mark’s financial and professional services sectors expertise will be extremely valuable as we seek to extend and strengthen our partner networks in targeted regions around the world,” Therese Tucker, BlackLine CEO, said. “More importantly, we expect his extensive and very specific SaaS accounting software experience to prove integral to our long-term growth. There are relatively few people in the world who have Mark’s level of experience and expertise scaling cloud accounting software sales organizations.”
Woodhams will report to Marc Huffman, BlackLine’s chief operating officer, who also joined BlackLine following a long and successful career at NetSuite.
“It’s exciting to be joining a fast-growing company that still has such a huge, untapped market opportunity ahead,” Woodhams said. “I look forward to helping BlackLine continue to enable customers to achieve their business objectives by helping them take advantage of best-of-breed cloud accounting software tools.”
The company also announced that Chief Revenue Officer Chris Murphy will be leaving BlackLine effective July 1st.
“Chris joined BlackLine at a critical point in the company’s growth trajectory,” Ms. Tucker added. “We appreciate his hard work over the past several years scaling our sales organization and helping us build the market leading position we have today.”
