Allan brings more than 25 years of high technology sales and service expertise to his role leading Bolt Data. With an extensive history of building lasting relationships with clients, Allan leads Bolt Data’s efforts to expand our leadership with customers investing in the Salesforce ecosystem.
A constant theme in Allan’s early career in customer and field service was how technology could be harnessed to both delight customers and improve service performance simultaneously. Based on a chance meeting he was presented with an opportunity to leverage that background to design service applications at Clarify, an early CRM vendor, and see his vision come to life.
Prior to Bolt Data, Allan served as VP of Professional and Strategic Services for ServiceMax, the leading provider of Force.com field service solutions. Prior to ServiceMax, he served as VP of Operations and CIO at Netformx, the leader in sales enablement solutions, and led strategic sales, product development, services at Encover, a provider of service sales solutions. In 2001, he co-founded Movana LLC, a provider of outsourced service contract sales solutions acquired by Encover. Previously, he spent 10 years at Clarify as architect, director of product design and marketeer. Prior to Clarify, Allan directed field services and logistics for several Silicon Valley high technology firms.
