Neil Delaney, Chief Revenue Officer at Plan A: "I’ve been privileged to work with, and help scale, world-class SaaS companies whose goals were to help companies communicate more effectively. It’s an even greater privilege to use what I’ve learned over 15 years in SaaS to help companies truly transform how they operate and to help them build a decarbonised and sustainable economy. There’s no greater challenge on the planet right now and I really feel that the people, the product, and the overall purpose in Plan A can make a profound difference. I’m excited about the role I get to play in helping bring this impact to bear."
Lubomila Jordanova, CEO of Plan A adds: "I am incredibly happy to bring Neil on board the Plan A journey as our Chief Revenue Officer.

Plan A introduces new Partnerships team
In the wake of Neil's arrival, Jan-Jaap Verhoeve, former CCO of Plan A, will henceforth lead the newly formed Partnerships team as VP Partnerships. In his new role, he and his team will manage strategic partnerships to accelerate the rollout of Plan A's software and services through indirect channels and thus foster the sustainable economic transformation of businesses at a global scale.
