Coupa has announced that acclaimed CEO, Rob Bernshteyn has departed as CEO and Chairman after 14 years at the helm. Since 2009, Rob has led the company to a 100% revenue growth and 95% customer renewal rate for four consecutive years.
Often credited for changing the face of Business Spend Management, with a leadership style that combines dynamism and passion, he led the company from a position of less than $250k ARR to becoming a billion dollar business.
More than 10 years ago, we had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing Rob during the early period of the company's entry into the UK. You can read that here.
Rob came to Coupa from SuccessFactors, where he was a member of the executive management team, in charge of Global Product Marketing & Management while the company scaled from an early start up to a successful public company.
Before SuccessFactors, Rob directed Product Management at Siebel Systems, where he helped build Siebel ERM into one of the company’s fastest growing product lines. Rob also worked for McKinsey & Company, and spent four years at Accenture.
Rob emigrated to the United States as a child after escaping with his family from Soviet Russia.
