Velocity Global, the world’s expert on work, today announced the appointment of Ann-Christel Graham as Chief Revenue Officer. In her role, Ann-Christel will drive the company’s revenue strategy and spearhead rapid, sustainable growth while also developing a world-class sales team. Ann-Christel joins Velocity Global with an impressive track record of driving growth for leading SaaS software companies, most recently as Chief Revenue Officer of Talend. As Velocity Global enters its next phase of growth, Ann-Christel’s proven leadership and execution across global teams, as well as her commitment to the customer journey, will prove invaluable. 

“We are thrilled that Ann-Christel is joining Velocity Global at this stage of growth. She has extensive experience with revenue and growth strategies, which are deeply rooted in a customer-first mentality,” said Frank Calderoni, CEO of Velocity Global. “She is not only process-oriented and diligent in her ability to build high-performing teams, but also passionate about being a strategic partner to customers and aligning their success with our own. I am confident Ann-Christel will make more than a meaningful impact and I’m excited to have her as part of our leadership team.” 

Ann-Christel joins Velocity Global as a seasoned sales executive, with a proven track record from over 25 years of driving growth for leading SaaS software companies across private and public markets. As Chief Revenue Officer at Talend, she was responsible for Sales, Customer Success, Renewals, Channel, and Revenue Operations teams globally, leading the teams through Talend’s cloud and SaaS transformation. Prior to that, she enjoyed a long career at SAP Concur, in a variety of roles responsible for managing complex, multi-million-dollar sales cycles to Fortune 1000 companies.  Ann-Christel’s ability to build high-performing sales teams stems from a balance of process-driven discipline, technical acumen, and innovative thinking to deliver consistent and predictable results.
