David Fuoto, Chief Customer Officer

David Fuoto, Chief Customer Officer

After spending his early life in the United States Marine Corps, David has spent the last 20+ years helping customer facing teams in technology organizations, ranging from start-ups to the Fortune 50, to deliver customer delight. He combines that with his most recent roles supporting companies in successfully balancing growth though Merger & Acquisitions with maintaining the success of the existing, to his new role as Chief Customer Officer for Crownpeak.

Married with 2 grown children, and an overly pampered rescue dog, David, his wife, and the dog live in the Raleigh, NC area. When not working, he and his wife spend as much time as possible on the golf course despite, or maybe because of, being challenged (him more so than her) by the game.
