Enterprise Growth and Demonstrated End to End CX Capabilities
Reputation’s global footprint has grown to seven locations with more than 500 employees worldwide. The company has expanded its enterprise and mid-market customer base significantly, having recently added notable customers to an already impressive client roster. Reputation credits this increased interest in its RXM platform to the evolution in how companies do business and communicate with their customers. The influence of social media and unsolicited online reviews has never been more critical, giving consumers unprecedented access to knowledge about the brands they interact with. In turn, brands are relying on Reputation’s modern and open platform to transform feedback data from reviews, likes, listings, comments and clicks into their competitive advantage.
“Shannon has a demonstrated track record of building scalable, performance-oriented legal teams and key industry partnerships – she is a valuable asset for Reputation,” said Joe Fuca, CEO of Reputation. “Shannon’s deep working knowledge of the enterprise SaaS space, a passion for technology, and extensive global legal experience is exactly what our company needs to further cement our success as a built-to-last organization.”
Hernández joins Reputation from Sophos, where she served as Assistant General Counsel and Interim General Counsel. While there, she led the legal teams handling go-to-market legal strategy, complex commercial and technology transactions, product counseling and M&A, and oversaw the company’s $4 billion acquisition by a private equity fund. Before Sophos, Shannon led the legal team at Symantec responsible for supporting Symantec’s enterprise software, SaaS and hardware groups with respect to product legal strategy, complex licensing, technology partnerships and M&A.
