PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 08, 2016 — TargetX, the leading provider of campuswide CRM solutions for higher education, announced the appointment of Vivian Wong to Chief Technology Officer.
After a year of major new product releases, acquisition of the leading enrollment and analytics firm, and significant client growth, the announcement signals TargetX’s commitment to both continued product development and customer satisfaction, core areas of expertise for Wong, who has a proven track record in delivering high quality products on time.
Vivian Wong is a dynamic, outcome driven and accomplished technology leader who brings a wealth of experience and talent in developing world-class software and guiding the outcomes of global engineering teams. Prior to joining TargetX, Wong served as Senior Vice President of Engineering at Service Max, a cloud-based solution for field-service providers built on the same leading platform as TargetX — Salesforce.
“I was so excited when the CEO of TargetX, Sasha Peterson, described his vision for product development at TargetX,” says Wong. “The TargetX culture, completely focused on helping their customers, colleges and universities, communicate more effectively with students, really spoke to me. I love the fact that the mission at TargetX is about making an impact in the field of higher education and the world.”
“It’s perfect timing to bring Vivian Wong’s energy, expertise and technology leadership to TargetX,” says CEO of TargetX, Sasha Peterson. “She has led multiple global engineering teams all over the world at places such as PeopleSoft, Taleo, Oracle and Service Max. Throughout her career, Wong has remained focused on customers, aligning her passion for product development and scalability with customer needs, which matches our approach at TargetX perfectly.”
“I’m not the kind of engineer who sits behind a desk,” continues Wong. “I enjoy interacting directly with customers and building products around their strategic and operational needs. I’ve been in the enterprise space for most of my career. My area of focus is really about bringing scalability in three different areas—people, process and product.”
