Jersey City-based AvePoint named Tom Lin chief revenue officer and Stuart Robertson chief operating officer, effective immediately, the Software-as-a-Service and data management platform provider announced Tuesday.
Co-founder and CEO Tianyi Jiang said the appointments underscore the company’s continued focus on sustained and scalable execution and growth.
“As we continue to evolve as a public company, we look forward to Tom and Stuart ensuring we have strong leadership, are empowering the right talent and scaling our proven ability to execute,” he said.
Lin, the company’s first sales executive, has been instrumental in growing AvePoint’s business over the last two decades. In his new role, he will focus on ensuring AvePoint’s global sales teams continue to bring strong value to each customer’s unique business context, while scaling globally.
AvePoint says it provides the most advanced platform for Software-as-a-Service and data management to optimize SaaS operations and secure collaboration — with more than 9 million cloud users. The company’s SaaS solutions are also available to managed service providers via more than 100 cloud marketplaces, so they can better support and manage their small and mid-sized business customers. Founded in 2001, AvePoint is a five-time Global Microsoft Partner of the Year.
“I’m passionate about building world-class teams focused on customer success, delivering business outcomes and creating winning cultures,” he said. “With my experience, I’m confident we will continue to implement the right programs and processes to capitalize on the tremendous growth opportunities in front of us as we move into the next phase of the company’s growth.”
Robertson, the company’s first chief people officer, will focus on building leadership strength, scaling the global organization and operational execution, and leading a culture where AvePoint colleagues thrive.
“Talent is everything for AvePoint,” he said. “Making sure we have the right leadership and team, set up to thrive is essential.
“Our people and operations teams already work hand-in-hand and are very well integrated, so this is a natural transition as Tom focuses on his new role as our chief revenue officer.”
