    Dave Wright is Chief Strategy Officer at ServiceNow, and serves as the company’s evangelist for how to improve workplace productivity. He enables ServiceNow customers to eliminate their reliance on email, spreadsheets and other manual processes so their employees can work smarter, not harder.

    Over the course of his more than 25-year career, Wright has worked with thousands of organizations to implement technologies that can create efficiencies, streamline business processes and reduce costs. He also saw how those same technologies can become a roadblock to growth, and cites email as a primary culprit for what he calls the “Productivity Paradox.”

    Prior to joining ServiceNow in December 2011, Wright spent more than six years with VMware, Inc. as vice president of Technical Services for EMEA. From 2003 to 2005, Wright headed up the technical division for Northern and Southern Europe at Mercury Interactive. Prior to that he spent six years at Peregrine Systems, Inc., where he held a variety of senior technical and marketing positions. Wright also worked for Boole & Babbage, Inc. and Candle Services (later acquired by IBM).
