ServiceSource Announces New Executive Appointments As Robert G. Ashe Joins Board Of Directors

ServiceSource® (NASDAQ: SREV), the global leader in recurring revenue management, today announced that Robert G. Ashe, a proven industry software CEO at Cognos and former IBM executive, has joined its Board of Directors. Ashe’s appointment adds key talent to continue building leading edge functionality into Renew OnDemand™, the world's only cloud application designed to increase recurring revenue, and to rapidly deploy customers on this new SaaS platform.

“Adding experienced industry thought leadership to our Board of Directors is critical as we continue to expand our vision of recurring revenue management. From his work at IBM and Cognos in growing innovative and market-leading businesses, Robert Ashe brings years of critical experience to our Board of Directors,” said Mike Smerklo, ServiceSource CEO. "We look forward to utilizing his great wealth of industry knowledge and expertise to help us scale and grow our Renew OnDemand SaaS business, as well as our managed services."

Robert Ashe was President, Chief Executive Officer and Director of Cognos, an industry leader in business intelligence and performance management. From 1984 through 2008 Rob held executive positions leading Cognos on a highly successful growth and development path. In 2008, Cognos was acquired by IBM for $5 billion. In January 2010, Rob was promoted to General Manager of Business Analytics at IBM. Rob retired from IBM in January 2012.

ServiceSource also appointed Tim Fleming as SVP of engineering and Dave Canelis as SVP of global professional services.

“We are fortunate to have attracted proven leaders with such outstanding track records as Tim and Dave,” said Mike Smerklo. “Their experience and expertise will be invaluable as we work to rapidly grow and deploy Renew OnDemand.”

Tim Fleming joins the ServiceSource executive team as SVP of engineering with 25 years of diverse executive and product development experience in the software and SaaS industry. Tim helped establish E*TRADE as a leading ecommerce company by building the technology organization while developing a highly successful international product offering. Tim also modernized Visa’s global endpoint infrastructure, transforming the existing legacy product to an open systems-based, distributed computing-based access solution. Under Tim’s leadership, Visa increased penetration by more than 400% in 2 years, reducing overall endpoint costs by more than 60%.
