Susan St. Ledger

Chief Revenue Officer and President, Worldwide Field Operations at Splunk

 

St. Ledger spent the early years of her career in technical roles, including her first gig as a software engineer. This experience, combined with her 25 years of leadership experience at companies like Sun Microsystems and Salesforce, uniquely position her to understand every aspect of the digital platform Splunk sells. She told SiliconANGLE last year that “at the heart of every problem, is a data problem,” citing data as the key to solving some of today’s largest problems, like wildfires and the opioid crisis. In her current role at Splunk, she oversees global sales, as well as customer success and marketing. In September of 2020, Okta announced that St. Ledger will be joining their executive management team as President of Worldwide Field Operations, starting in February 2021. St. Ledger is known for being a lifelong learner and maintains a “career bucket list,” packed with things she wants to explore and skills she wants to develop. Plus, she’s a big proponent of early education and the importance of mentorship. St. Ledger also sits on the board of cloud infrastructure automation software HashiCorp.
