Schreiber brings more than 20 years of enterprise software and SaaS experience from a unique combination of customer success and technology leadership roles. She comes to BlackLine from SaaS cybersecurity company Forcepoint where she was chief customer success officer. Previously, Schreiber spent 10 years in executive positions at Oracle driving customer success following the acquisition of GoldenGate Software where she led technical services and support. Prior to that, she held management roles at Charles Schwab, Apple and Bank of America.
“I feel privileged to be part of a market-leading company that is loved by its customers. While the sky-high retention rates are a strong indicator, BlackLine’s commitment to customer service is best made clear by the words of the controllers and accountants who use the software every day. The overwhelmingly positive reviews on sites like Gartner Peer Insights, G2 and TrustRadius are unlike anything I’ve seen before,” said Schreiber. “My passion comes from the fact that I used to be a technology customer myself. I understand the thought processes, potential concerns and fears around purchasing decisions. BlackLine’s model for a customer-first approach stands out in the enterprise software market, and I look forward to continuing to guide customers to successful outcomes along their journeys to modern accounting.”
Schreiber replaces Karen Flathers who left the company at the end of February.
“Karen has been instrumental in helping scale BlackLine’s customer success organization,” Mr. Huffman added. “During her tenure, we made significant investments in the customer team capacity around customer success, training and delivery, putting in place a solid foundation for Lisa to take the customer experience to the next level.”
