Zilliant, an end-to-end pricing and revenue operations and intelligence software company, announced the appointment of Pascal Yammine as CEO. Yammine previously held the position of SVP and General Manager of Salesforce Revenue Cloud and has over 20 years of experience.
“Pascal’s experience and leadership in growing and scaling businesses, particularly in the adjacent CPQ market, make him uniquely qualified to lead Zilliant in our next phase of growth,” said Scott Pasquini, managing director and co-head of Telecom, Media and MDP Technologies (TMT) Services Team. “The price optimization and management software market has reached a tipping point as a result of digital commerce, inflation and global market volatility. With solid revenue growth, record levels of new customer acquisition and continued support for MDP, Zilliant is establishing itself as a breakthrough leader in the price management space.”
“We invested in Zilliant because of the company’s history of leadership and innovation in its industry, and Pascal’s appointment as CEO only raises our ambitions for Zilliant’s future,” added Zaid Alsikafi, managing director and co-head of MDP’s TMT Services team. “We look forward to working with Pascal and the rest of Zilliant’s leadership team to continue to deliver measurable value to Zilliant’s customers and drive the company’s continued long-term success.”
“Price optimization and management are critical functions, especially in the face of market volatility, inflation, supply chain challenges and the acceleration of digital commerce,” Yamin said. “I am excited by the growth potential and trajectory of the market and look forward to working with the Zilliant team at this pivotal time to strengthen our leadership position and accelerate our vision to power intelligent commerce.”
“On behalf of the entire board, I would like to thank Greg for his leadership over the past 19 years,” said John Lewis, executive chairman of the company’s board of directors. “During his tenure, Zilliant became recognized as an industry leader in the B2B market for price optimization and management software by IDC and Quadrant Solutions and established itself as a customer-focused organization that delivers the fastest time to value and the highest return on investment. We look forward to Greg’s continued active involvement as a board member, investor and strategic advisor.”
“It has been an honor and a privilege to lead Zilliant and work with such talented and passionate colleagues, customers and partners,” said Peters. “We are transforming pricing and revenue operations and the intelligence market, and Pascal brings first-hand experience that is a perfect fit for this next stage of the company’s growth. I have had the privilege of knowing Pascal for several years and am excited about the experience he brings to grow our business and fuel our passion for customer success and rapid innovation.”
