Seismic, a leading global technology company, provides sales enablement artificial intelligence solutions to large companies the likes of IBM, Cisco, Allianz, Siemens and American Express. The company announced its success this year as it surpasses an annual revenue run rate of US$200mn.
With Great Success Comes Expansion
The company’s milestone revenue has proven the success of its most lucrative first quarter in the history of the company, which also saw the firm add 50 new clients to its customer base. Seismic has recorded 182% year-over-year sales growth in Europe and Asia and the Pacific (APAC), as well as a role change for Heather Cook, who took the position of Vice President of the APAC region. Seismic believes this role change will help kickstart its expansion into Australia, New Zealand, and other Asian markets. The company has acquired 200 personnel - for a total workforce of over 1000, of which it employed its first-ever Chief Product Officer.
