Jon White Joined Highspot in November 2017 as Senior Director of Product Management
Highspot, powering modern businesses with the industry’s highest-rated sales enablement platform, announced Jon White has been promoted to Vice President of Product Management. White brings more than a dozen years of product leadership in innovative technology companies, including Moz and Xerox. White will lead the Highspot product management team, working under co-founder and Chief Product Officer, David Wortendyke.
“Jon White is an outstanding product innovator who brings rich leadership experience in building products that customers value,” said Robert Wahbe, co-founder and CEO of Highspot. “Jon’s customer focus and deep product experience will help us further accelerate Highspot’s rapid growth.”
White has been building software in product, engineering and leadership roles since 2000. He joined Highspot in November 2017 as Senior Director of Product Management.
“I joined Highspot because I was amazed at how much customers love and use the product—an incredibly hard thing to achieve in enterprise B2B,” said White. “I’m looking forward to building upon this success by looking for more ways to delight our customers and adding value for sales and marketing teams that want to win over modern buyers.”
Prior to Highspot, White managed a product and user experience team building marketing analytics software at Moz, a Seattle-based SaaS startup, as well as at WDS, which was acquired by Xerox. During his time at WDS, White also managed engineering teams in Singapore, Seattle, and the United Kingdom. Before WDS, White held software engineering roles at various organizations, including the British Government’s Defence Evaluation and Research Agency (now QinetiQ).
Highspot has been aggressively expanding its leadership team and staff hiring to accelerate and support its organic customer growth. The company has more than doubled its product, engineering, and technical staff in the last 12 months and has plans to continue its hiring pace through the new year.
