Evisort, a provider of artificial intelligence products for contract management and analysis, has named Michaela Dempsey, who has worked more than 20 years as a marketing executive for SaaS technology companies, as chief marketing officer.

Dempsey joins Evisort from Workday, where she led marketing for its spend management portfolio of technology products. Prior to Workday, Dempsey was vice president of global marketing for Scout RFP, a leading procurement platform for sourcing and supplier engagement.

She led the marketing team through the company’s Series A, B and C financing rounds, and its acquisition by Workday in 2019.

She has also been a senior marketing executive for Apteligent (which was acquired by VMware), Tidemark, Anaplan, Bill.com, Intellitactics, SMARTS, CrowdBurst, and RiverSoft.

In addition, she is executive director of the Global Council for Advancement of Women in Procurement.

As CMO, Dempsey will lead Evisort’s global marketing function, overseeing the Evisort brand, all market-facing strategy, growth and market demand, product positioning, customer advocacy, and global awareness.

Evisort says this hire continues its trend of hiring proven leaders to its team, including the recent addition of Dwight Krossa, former Microsoft executive and now vice president of product, and Steve Tucker, former contract lifecycle management sales leader at Docusign and now chief sales officer.

“As we continue to rapidly scale Evisort, we look for talented, passionate leaders who understand our customers, the market, and — most importantly — how to address the massive opportunities ahead of us,” said Jerry Ting, CEO of Evisort. “Michaela’s track record of building marketing organizations at three category-defining SaaS leaders make her the perfect CMO to help drive our next phase of accelerated growth.”
