Act-On Software names new Chief Customer Officer Jeffrey Coleman

The new role at Act-On helps represent customers throughout the organization, ensuring their perspectives, outcomes, and experiences are reflected in day-to-day decisions.

 Act-On Software, the only pure-play marketing automation platform, is excited to welcome new Chief Customer Officer Jeffrey Coleman.

Coleman comes to Act-On with more than 20 years of technology experience, with notable stints at Barclays Global Investments (now BlackRock), Jive Software, and SurveyMonkey. He most recently served as Chief Customer Officer at Clearbit.

“This is a new role for us at Act-On and reflects our continued focus on the success of our customers,” Act-On CEO Kate Johnson said. “Jeff has an extensive background in customer success and I’m confident he will help us elevate the experience we provide to our customers.”

“Jeff’s background and experience align well with our strategic direction in continuing to acquire, enable and support mid-market and enterprise companies,” Act-on Chief Commercial Officer Gregg Ames added. “The work we’re doing with larger businesses will be enhanced with his leadership and experience.”

Coleman emphasized Act-On’s industry-leading, customer-centric model that inspired him to take a new position. His role will help represent Act-On customers throughout the organization’s decisions and focus areas.

“I will be laser-focused on making decisions that drive value for customers,” Coleman said. “Are customers able to use the technology we’re deploying to deliver results for their business? Focusing on the customer experience and outcomes is ultimately what leads to renewals, upsells and referrals, and new opportunities.”

Coleman’s hands-on experience to move the industry needle lends to those goals.

His work to build customer success at SurveyMonkey helped scale the enterprise businesses from about $1 million in 2014, through the IPO, to well over $100 million in 2021.

“I’m excited to be joining Act-On,” Coleman said. “I have been very impressed by Act-On’s customer-first approach, by the attitude of everyone I met, and by Act-On’s values and how they’re being lived out across the organization.”
