She will oversee the sales, marketing, and customer success strategy and resources while building out the sales operations infrastructure, including channel partner programs, to support global expansion and sustainable growth across multiple regions.  

David Holmes, Fergus CEO said Ms Swanson's experience advancing global go-to-market strategies and her track record for delivering strong recurring revenue growth made her a perfect addition to the Leadership team.

“Barb will play a key role in accelerating our global momentum. Her deep knowledge of the technology industry and proven experience scaling SaaS businesses will be instrumental as we enter our next phase of growth. We are thrilled to have her as part of the team," he said.

Commenting on her appointment, Barb Swanson said: "Fergus is a great example of a software business that is solving genuine problems for customers.
