UiPath appoints Robert Enslin as co-CEO
Romanian-born unicorn UiPath has appointed Robert Enslin, a former Google Cloud executive, to split chief executive responsibilities with UiPath founder Daniel Dines.
Enslin will be joining the executive team as Co-Chief Executive Officer starting May 16, 2022, the enterprise automation software company said.
With UiPath expected to surpass USD1 billion in revenue and ARR in the fiscal year 2023 in a total addressable automation market of USD60 billion, the partnership of Dines and Enslin “positions UiPath to extend its market leadership to meet the growing demand for automation,” the company said.
Enslin, who brings more than 30 years of enterprise software experience, served as President of Cloud Sales at Google Cloud. In that role, he led global field operations, tripling the size of the sales organization and driving Google Cloud’s growth at scale. Enslin also spent 27 years at SAP in various leadership roles across sales and operations. In his final role with SAP, Enslin served as President, Cloud Business Group and Executive Board member, where he led the development and delivery of SAP’s entire portfolio of cloud applications and services, including SAP Concur, SAP Ariba, SAP Customer Experience, SAPSuccessFactors, and the Qualtrics business. He has also served as the honorary global Chairman of the Els for Autism Golf Challenge.
“During this time of accelerating digital transformation, UiPath has never been more strategic for our customers who are focused on leveraging automation to achieve competitive differentiation and operational excellence. I’m bringing Rob on as my partner as we focus on growth at scale and building a company that reimagines how business is done. Rob brings the right balance of experience and skills to scale our operations, allowing me to focus on our company culture, vision, and product innovation, areas I am passionate about – and that bring considerable value to our employees and customers,” Daniel Dines, UiPath co-founder and Chief Executive Officer, said.
“Partnering with Daniel to lead the company he co-founded more than 15 years ago is an enormous privilege. I have long been a fan of UiPath and the meaningful value the company creates for its customers and partners through its end-to-end automation platform. I firmly believe that there’s a huge opportunity to reinvent how business is done and that digital technology should be at the center of the new way of working. I’m committed to helping UiPath build on its momentum as we look ahead to the company’s next phase of growth,” Robert Enslin said.
