CEO/Founder

Sameer Patel

On August 15th, 2016, I joined Kahuna as CEO and board member. Kahuna enables a new level of authentic engagement between brands and their customers wherever they are — the web, email, mobile, social channels —through personalized communication at scale. Powered by big data and machine learning, we help create delightful experiences for every customer with the perfect message, delivered on the right channel, at just the right time. Kahuna is trusted by Yelp, Yahoo!, GoPro, Dollar Shave Club and other leading brands. The company was founded in 2012 and counts Sequoia Capital, SoftTech VC and Tenaya Capital as its lead investors. Kahuna was named Best Places to Work 2015, San Francisco Business. And yes, we're hiring. Most recently, I served as GM at SAP / SuccessFactors overseeing the Collaboration and Hybris Commerce Community Software business. In 13 quarters, SAP Jam scaled to over 34 million subscribers and 1300 customers, and consistently grew at triple-digit billings vs 42% forecasted growth of this category. In a span of 4 years, SAP Jam was named "leader" by 16 research analyst firms. Prior to SAP, I've had 15 years of leading enterprise technology teams in management consulting and the systems integrator business. I'm privileged to have been quoted in publications such as CNBC, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, TechCrunch and Harvard Business Review, and I've keynoted events such as CeBIT; Social Business Forum, Milan; GigaOM Future of Work; IBM Connect and others.

I was a nationally ranked Squash Player and I still love the game.
