Salesforce elevated Franklin to president and chief advertising officer in January. 

Previous to the brand new position, Franklin led the staff that launched Salesforce’s gamified on-line studying platform referred to as Trailhead, which helps individuals launch STEM careers. 

It has been an attention-grabbing yr for Salesforce, culminating in December with its high-profile deal to purchase Slack. 

Franklin joins Remotely to debate democratizing and diversifying tech, the position of the CMO in a post-COVID world and advertising classes from the pandemic.
