Ryan Bott

Global Vice President of Sales Enablement, Sodexo

Ryan Bott is a modern revenue leader, recently voted in to the Top 25 Most Influential Sales Leaders globally and has built some of the most successful revenue teams in technology. As a unique leader, he challenges all those around him to level up and perform their best.

Ryan has led demand generation, sales and partner teams at Intel, Avocent, Western Digital and several Silicon Valley/Silicon Slopes startups. But none were more successful than an IPO at Fusion-io. Scaling a team from 6 to 150 people, and revenues from $10M to $350M in 20 months, is a leader-building event that Ryan was able to oversaw.

Along the way Ryan’s also built major partnerships with Salesforce.com, IBM, Lenovo, and Amazon, and as a VP of Sales multiple times he now runs a large part of a global revenue transformation at Sodexo-the likes of which have rarely been seen. From implementing Salesforce in 72 countries and 6 months, to launching and scaling sales enablement, and to implementing inside sales globally, this is the tallest order to date. Sodexo is a $23B company and Ryan carries a $2B new business number to prove the transformation is working. Ryan has an MBA from Arizona State, speaks several languages and enjoys a wonderful family of 5 children, flyfishing and playing soccer around the world.
