With over 20 years of enterprise software sales and engineering experience, Crook will lead Amplitude’s sales and partner organizations globally.
“Nate has extensive experience in sales and engineering at startup and enterprise-class companies, so he’s an ideal fit for this next chapter of Amplitude’s growth,” said Amplitude President Thomas Hansen. “His track record of scaling global sales teams, selling to the world’s largest companies, and partnering with developer teams to solve problems will help Amplitude unlock the power of its customer’s products.”
