In his previous role as chairman and CEO of Responsys, which he held for ten years, Mr Springer transformed and scaled the business from private start-up to a leading cross-channel marketing automation platform globally and a publicly traded company.
He has more than 25 years of executive leadership experience. He is also experienced in driving innovation across technology and, specifically, the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) industry.
“DocuSign has delivered tremendous value for hundreds of thousands of companies and millions of consumers around the world by providing them with a faster, easier and more secure set of services for their digital transformation journey,” Mr Springer said.
"I’m thrilled to join a team of such highly passionate leaders and employees so deeply focused on customer success. I look forward to leading the next chapter of DocuSign innovations to bring even more value to our customers, developers and partners around the world.”
DocuSign’s former CEO Keith Krach will continue in his role on the board as chairman.
