Drift, the Conversation Cloud company, welcomed Scott Ernst as its new CEO. Ernst joins the company's executive team as Drift’s Co-founder and former CEO David Cancel steps into the role of Executive Chairman.
Ernst brings more than three decades of experience at the intersection of marketing technology and consumer data. He was most recently the CEO of Tubular and has experience taking Macromill through a successful IPO, which had an enterprise value of over $1 billion.
"I am humbled and honored to be Drift's new CEO," said Ernst. "I have been a customer and advisor of the company for years, so having the opportunity to take the helm at such a critical point in the company's history is incredibly exciting. The opportunity ahead of us has never been bigger. I look forward to partnering closely with David, the rest of the board and the entire Drift team to lead the company into its next phase of growth as we further our momentum in the marketplace and execute on our mission to transform the way businesses buy from businesses by harnessing the power of conversations and human connection."
