Govini Taps Tomaselli to Guide Public Sector Revenue Growth

Govini, the leading business intelligence provider to companies that sell goods and services to the public sector, today announced that it has appointed DC technology industry veteran John Tomaselli as the company’s first Chief Revenue Officer. Govini, which already serves a client roster of the top government contractors, is investing more aggressively in the public sector market to track with strong growth and to maximize a new $20 million investment round.

Tomaselli previously served as chief operating officer at SAP National Security Services. During his tenure he led direct and indirect sales, business operations, and go-to-market strategy and execution. Prior to that role, he served as SAP’s vice president of business analytics and data technology solutions for SAP Public Services, and other strategic vertical markets at SAP. He also held executive roles with P&L responsibility at Business Objects, Xerox and other leading technology firms.

“John is a well-respected leader in our industry and throughout the D.C. region, with an extraordinary track record at one of the world’s leading government IT contractors,” said Eric Gillespie, founder and CEO of Govini. “John knows better than anyone how hyper-competitive the federal market has become, and how Govini’s data and analytics stand to fundamentally change the way companies find and win government business. Bringing John on board is a key investment in the drive to assemble our team of the best and brightest in public sector.”

The appointment follows Govini’s recent announcements about the opening of a permanent office location in Washington, D.C. to support its rapidly expanding team, and a $20 million round of funding from investors including Accel Partners, Salesforce Ventures, and Symphony Technology Group.

As a Salesforce partner, Govini will also be presenting at the Salesforce World Tour Washington, D.C. event at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center on May 28.
