Blackline Safety prepares for accelerated growth
As Blackline Safety growth accelerates, Sean Stinson moves into Chief Revenue Officer position, according to a company press release.
The CRO role will increase Blackline’s alignment within the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) space as businesses around the world increasingly pursue digital transformation programs that leverage data to support decision-making. Mr. Stinson has worked with Blackline for more than seven years, previously serving as VP Sales and Product Management. In his new role, he will lead product management, user experience, sales, business development, client success, customer care and data science.
“Over the last several years, Blackline has entrenched itself as a global leader in IIoT safety wearables and cloud services,” said Sean Stinson, CRO for Blackline Safety.
“As we look to the future, Blackline is aggressively investing into wearable technology, high quality user experiences, cloud software and data science solutions that promise to increase enterprise safety, agility, efficiency and quality. Our enhanced structure will help Blackline bring new innovations to market while supporting our clients as they increasingly enter the digital age.”
Today, Blackline promoted Glen Silver to VP Sales, North America from his previous position of Director of Sales, North America. He is responsible for overseeing Blackline’s network of Business Development Directors, Regional Sales Directors and Regional Sales Managers and will report to the CRO.
As Blackline’s Product Management team has continued to expand, Kirk Johnson will now lead the group as Director of Product Management, previously serving as Global Product Manager. In his new role, Mr. Johnson will lead an expanded team of product managers and product marketing managers responsible for understanding customer needs, directing the product portfolio and working with Blackline’s marketing communications team to best position its offerings in different markets and applications.
Blackline also appointed Lohrasp Seify to the position of Director, Blackline Vision data science. Mr. Seify has been instrumental in the creation and leadership of the Blackline Vision team and suite of data science services. Mr. Seify will continue to expand his team as businesses continue to transform digitally, leveraging the growing base of data from Blackline’s safety wearables, in addition to integrating data from other services.
