14 | M R EP O RT know someone moving up in the industry? email us at on Total Expert's current momen- tum—aligning the company to a customer-driven growth strategy and continuing to create an inspiring place to work." Gaydos joins from Talkdesk, where he was COO for the past two years. Chad was instrumental in building out the executive team at Talkdesk, and key to the company's recent disruptive growth. Gaydos has two decades of executive leadership from Skillsoft, the world's largest corporate learning software provider, and SAP, the largest global enterprise application software company. At Skillsoft, he served as CRO and COO, leading all aspects of go-to-market in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and Asia-Pacific. In his role as COO for SAP's Regulated Industries business, Gaydos led the strategy, operations, revenue perfor- mance, customer relationships, and total customer satisfaction in federal, state, and local government, utilities, and healthcare markets throughout the United States. "As we enter a new year, Total Expert enters a new phase of growth. That's why I'm beyond excited to wel- come Chad Gaydos as our President. Chad is absolutely the right person for this critical job and has an incredible record of leading category-defining, high-growth companies at global scale to even greater success," Total Expert Founder and CEO Joe Welu said. "He shares my passion for helping customers win through innovation and digital transformation. As the financial services industry contin- ues to modernize, Total Expert is fortunate to be a key technology partner to many of the companies leading the pack. I'm confident that Chad's unmatched drive for customer excellence, combined with his deep experience scaling businesses for growth will unlock our next level and continue to create tremendous value for our customers." Modern financial brands are all seeking to build lifelong relationships with customers by delivering better outcomes at every stage of their financial journey. These organizations have an immense amount of custom- er data at their fingertips, but often lack the tools to act on it and improve the customer journey. By combining customer intelligence with CRM and marketing automation, Total Expert enables banks and lenders to easily transform customer data into valu- able insights, then use automation to take action through higher quality engagement across the customer life- cycle. The result is a data-driven but human-first approach for educating, engaging, and advising customers on the right products and services at the right time in their life.
