He brings a deep understanding of the business and is well-positioned to continue driving GoTo’s success with an outstanding suite of products and a strategy to invest in technology that will better serve corporations and organizations around the world.”
“I am excited about the opportunities that we have to grow GoTo. We have an outstanding team, loyal customers, and the right approach to investing in technology that will truly transform IT for our customers. We are on the right path to success and have a great future,” added Mr. Veldran.
Mr. Veldran brings more than 30 years of experience leading strategy, finance, and operations for Dun & Bradstreet, ADP, and Procter & Gamble.
