Smartsheet Appoints Anna Griffin as Chief Marketing Officer to Support Global Growth

BELLEVUE, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Smartsheet (NYSE: SMAR), a leading cloud-based platform for work
execution, today announced that Anna Griffin has joined the company as
its Chief Marketing Officer. Reporting to Smartsheet CEO Mark Mader,
Griffin will lead global marketing for the company that is transforming
the way knowledge workers and organizations plan, track, automate, and
report on work.


“Anna is the kind of relentlessly innovative and creative marketing
leader who helps ensure we continue to lead a fast-growing, highly
dynamic market,” said Mader. “We have built a strong and trusted brand
on our ability to deliver real value to customers, and we look forward
to enrolling many more in the possibilities available to them through
collaborative work management.”

Griffin brings more than two decades of experience in senior marketing
roles, including leading the global re-branding of CA Technologies
during her five years as Senior Vice President of Corporate Marketing.
Before CA, she spent five years as Vice President of Global Marketing at
Juniper Networks, where she led a marketing transformation and
repositioning effort around the company’s transition from hardware
innovator to enterprise network software and cloud solutions provider.

She has also held executive-level positions at advertising and brand
communication agencies, leading campaigns, product launches and
repositioning for brands such as Apple, Bank of America, Royal
Caribbean, Sony, Saturn and Land’s End.

“I’ve been blessed throughout my career to work for companies at
defining moments in their histories, which is why the opportunity to
lead marketing at Smartsheet was so compelling,” said Griffin. “I’m
excited to be part of a company where marketing can help shape the
future of the business and capitalize on a massive opportunity to create
and lead a category.”

The appointment comes as Smartsheet strengthens its offering for
marketing leaders like Griffin. In January, Smartsheet announced the
acquisition of Slope, an application that makes it easy for marketing
teams and others to collaborate on and manage creative work.
