SAN FRANCISCO, May 24, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- As it continues
to digitally transform how agreements are prepared, signed,
acted-upon and managed around the world, DocuSign (NASDAQ:DOCU)
today announced the appointment of former Cisco SVP and chief data
officer Shanthi Iyer as its new
chief information officer (CIO).
With over 20 years' experience in a multitude of technology
leadership roles at Cisco, Iyer will spearhead DocuSign's efforts
to support its rapid scale by driving operational excellence,
improving employee productivity, and accelerating customers' ease
of doing business with the company. Iyer will report to DocuSign
COO Scott Olrich.
"With a year of remote work behind us, hybrid work environments
on the horizon, and the rise of the anywhere economy, it's a unique
and exciting time to take on the CIO role at DocuSign," said Iyer.
"We're at an inflection point where technology, data and analytics
can be used in new ways to truly simplify life and accelerate
business for our employees, customers and partners."
"As we grow and scale, it's vital that we optimize our systems,
processes and technology infrastructure to support the needs of
today—and the rapidly evolving needs of tomorrow. It's equally
important that we have the right executive leadership in place to
oversee and drive that evolution," said Olrich. "In Shanthi, we
have someone who can ensure that DocuSign is world-class in all of
those areas, and I'm looking forward to working with her."
Iyer started at Cisco in 1997 as an Oracle database
administrator, working across the company in multiple
infrastructure, services, commerce, sales and supply chain
roles—ultimately becoming the chief data officer and SVP of the
Data & Analytics group. Prior to Cisco, she worked at Applied
