Contentstack hires ex-Adobe, SAP exec as CMO

Digital experience platform Contentstack has announced the appointment of Gurdeep Dhillon as its new Chief Marketing Officer. Reporting to Founder and CEO Neha Sampat, Dhillon brings nearly 20 years’ experience across enterprise software and marketing leadership to the business.

Most recently, Dhillon helped subscription management platform Zuora into the next phase of the “subscription economy” as its CMO. Before that, he spent time in Adobe’s Digital Experience business as a leader of both the Marketo and Magento organisations, heading up a team of marketers responsible for fuelling growth within Adobe’s commercial segment.

Earlier, Dhillon was at SAP for almost 13 years, working his way up from Market Intelligence Intern all the way through to Global Vice President – Demand Generation for SAP Customer Experience.

“Even some of the best-known brands in the world are facing a relevancy crisis as they seek to gain a sustainable competitive advantage. Contentstack has the vision, product, and commitment to no-fail customer care that these brands can count on to deliver exceptional digital experiences,” said Dhillon. “The team has built something special – from the platform all the way to the culture. That made this an obvious choice for me.”

Sampat added: “Gurdeep is a great fit for our Contentstack tribe, both in expertise and values alignment. He understands the industry, and what it takes to capitalise on opportunity, and lead category creation. He knows digital experiences are the new competitive frontline for brands. Best yet, he is well regarded for his leadership style and ability to bring teams together to do the best work of their lives.”
