Marketo CEO joins Facebook PMD Gigya’s board of directors

phil-fernandez-marketo-ceo-smallFacebook Preferred Marketing Developer Gigya announced recently that Phil Fernandez, the chairman and CEO of Marketo Inc., has joined the company’s board of directors.

Fernandez said in a press release:

As I’ve watched Gigya evolve over the years, it has become clear to me that this company has an incredible opportunity in its hands. Patrick (Salyer) and his team have built a strong and sustainable business by helping marketers gain a better understanding of their users through first-party data and I think they are well-positioned to dominate the market.

Fernandez, who co-founded the cloud-based marketing software company, will act as a trusted advisor to Gigya and help inform decisions regarding corporate strategy, product development, go-to-market plans and client services.

With more than 30 years of experience building and running high-growth technology companies, Fernandez was president and COO of Epiphany and previously COO at Red Brick Systems. He is the author of the book Revenue Disruption (Wiley, 2012), and is a well-known writer and speaker on topics related to digital marketing, marketing automation, and entrepreneurialism.

Patrick Salyer, CEO of Gigya, welcomed Fernandez:

Having Phil join our board is invaluable to Gigya. He has a tremendous track record of success building large, successful and independent companies. Bringing him onto our board provides us with direct access to one of Silicon Valley’s most influential and visionary leaders.
