Get to know Zilliant's new Chief Executive Officer Pascal Yammine.
The Next Era of Zilliant
Yesterday, we announced the appointment of Pascal Yammine as Zilliant’s new chief executive officer. Most recently the Senior Vice President & General Manager of Salesforce Revenue Cloud, Yammine was hand-picked by a group that included longtime Zilliant CEO Greg Peters to usher in an exciting new era for the company.
Peters led Zilliant for 19 years, overseeing remarkable innovation and growth that ultimately culminated in the company’s acquisition by funds affiliated with Madison Dearborn Partners in December 2021.
He now passes the torch to Yammine, who steps into the CEO chair of a company with grand ambitions and prospects for the future.
“I truly believe that our best days as an organization lie ahead. I’ve never been more bullish about our growth trajectory, and ability to execute on our vision and continue to deliver value for our customers,” said Peters. “Before stepping down, I wanted to ensure that we found the right successor, who shares my passion and excitement about our vision and who can lead Zilliant into this next phase of growth.”
Enter Pascal Yammine.
What Pascal Yammine Brings to Zilliant
Yammine is uniquely qualified to lead Zilliant. Not only does he have more than 20 years of leadership experience in enterprise software and technology consulting but has his finger on the pulse of intelligent commerce and SaaS-based commercial excellence. He brings proven proficiency in developing a vision for the future and building new initiatives that can be operationalized and scaled globally.
He has also demonstrated the ability to navigate rapid change to level-up a business to new heights. In his most recent role at Salesforce, Yammine successfully scaled the Salesforce CPQ business into the next $1B cloud.
“Pascal’s experience and leadership in growing and scaling businesses, particularly in the adjacent CPQ market, make him uniquely qualified to lead Zilliant in our next phase of growth,” Scott Pasquini, Managing Director and Co-Head of MDP’s Telecom, Media & Technology (TMT) Services team. “The price optimization and management software market has reached an inflection point in the wake of digital commerce, inflation and global market volatility. With robust revenue growth, record levels of new customer acquisition and the continued support of MDP, Zilliant is establishing itself as the breakout leader of the pricing management space.”
Yammine’s appointment as CEO is a game-changing move that matches Zilliant’s world-class software with leading expertise to further drive innovation and growth. As he put it:
Price optimization and management are critical functions, particularly in the face of market volatility, inflation, supply chain challenges and the acceleration of digital commerce. I’m excited by the growth potential and trajectory of the market and look forward to working with the Zilliant team at this pivotal time to further our leadership position and accelerate our vision of powering intelligent commerce.”
