As part of our series about the “Five Things You Need To Be A Highly Effective Leader During Turbulent Times”, we had the pleasure of interviewing Pascal Yammine, Chief Executive Officer at Zilliant.
Pascal joined Zilliant as CEO in 2022. He brings more than 20 years of experience in executive roles within enterprise software and business consulting, with proven leadership in developing strategic visions, developing new products and programs that can be scaled globally, and leading organizations through digital transformations.
Most recently, Pascal was the Senior Vice President & General Manager of Salesforce Revenue Cloud, where he led product direction, marketing, go-to-market and operations. In that role, Pascal scaled the Salesforce CPQ business into the next $1B cloud. He previously held various leadership roles in the Salesforce Customer Success Group, numerous senior consulting roles and executive roles in media and communications industries, ran his own successful consulting firm, and served as chief information officer of a communication service provider.
Pascal earned a Bachelor of Arts and master’s degree in Organizational Communication from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

Thank you so much for your time! I know that you are a very busy person. Our readers would love to “get to know you” a bit better. Can you tell us a bit about your ‘backstory’ and how you got started?
After receiving my master’s degree from the University of Illinois, I dipped my toes in the technology industry through my first job at Accenture and ultimately found myself as SVP and general manager of Salesforce Revenue Cloud before making the tenacious jump to CEO of Zilliant. I have a fanatical focus on customer success, and my background is truly rooted in staying close to the customer.
