Clozd, a leader in win-loss analysis consulting and technology, announced today the appointment of John D’Agostino as an independent director to Clozd’s Board of Directors.
John D’Agostino brings more than 30 years of experience in B2B sales, including his most recent position as Global Head of Sales at Qualtrics. Previously, D’Agostino led the America’s division of Parametrics Technology Corporation (PTC). He is widely recognized as an expert in go-to-market and scaling global operations for B2B companies.
”John is the ideal board member for our company. In addition to being a world-class leader that can help us scale our company, John has a great understanding of our solutions from his time as a customer of Clozd while leading global sales at Qualtrics,” said Andrew Peterson, co-founder. “John has been a mentor and sounding board for our team from the beginning. It’s nice to formalize his role on our board and continue to grow our market and business together,” said Spencer Dent, co-founder.
Regarding his decision to join Clozd, John D’Agostino said:
Too much time is spent guessing and digging for truth. Clozd eliminates speculation and debate over what did or didn’t go well during a sales campaign or product release. Clozd is all about using the actual truth of why you win and lose as a baseline for how to succeed again or never fail twice. Winning requires honesty and the courage to expose it. I’m looking forward to helping Clozd build out the win-loss category.”
Prior to joining Clozd’s board, D’Agostino was the Executive Vice President of Global Sales at Qualtrics, a publicly-traded company and a leader in the Experience Management software space. D’Agostino led Qualtrics’ sales growth from $42 million ARR to $550 million ARR and helped take the company from a $350 million valuation to an $8 billion acquisition by SAP. Earlier in his career D’Agostino served as the Division Vice President for Americas Sales at PTC, a publicly-traded software company focused on industrial innovation.
