Each brings a deep blend of experience and leadership in their respective areas and will be instrumental to our operations as we continue to scale Coveo,” said Louis Tetu, chairman and CEO.  “Our rapid growth over the past several quarters shows that demand for our intelligent search apps continues to grow, and Bob and Jennifer are important appointments to help guide that growth.”

“It’s an absolute pleasure to join the Coveo team and an opportunity to lead sales of an innovative software company that’s redefining how people work and upskill with information in the digital workplace,” said Walmsley. “I look forward to helping to manage Coveo’s viral growth with our world class sales organization.”

In her new role as VP of Customer Success, Jennifer MacIntosh leads customer engagement, viral adoption and customer value generation across Coveo’s enterprise search solutions and apps with a focus on changing how people work with information and knowledge.
