Artificial intelligence contract management and quote-to-cash firm Apttus has named Raj Verma as chief operating officer effective immediately, the company announced this week.
As he takes over operations, the company said in a statement that Verma will focus on “helping prioritize Apttus investments aimed at driving growth and operational efficiency.”

Verma joins the technology company, which has its U.S. headquarters in San Mateo, California, from Hortonworks, where he served as president and chief operating officer. He has also worked at TIBCO and Parametric Technology Corporation.
“Raj is an experienced enterprise sales veteran with a pedigree of helping companies capitalize on large market opportunities and grow at scale,” said Kirk Krappe, CEO of Apttus.
Apttus has also promoted Ben Allen to chief marketing officer. “I have been continually impressed with Ben’s positive effect on Apttus’ business, particularly his ability to successfully implement go-to-market strategies and deliver solutions that address the business challenges our customers face,” said Krappe.
The executive moves follow last month’s hiring of Terry Schmid as the new chief financial officer of Apttus. Schmid joined after working for seven years at Imperva, an application and data security company that went through an IPO in 2011.
