Tien Tzuo, Founder and CEO

Tien Tzuo joined Zuora after 9 years at salesforce.com. Tien was one of the “original forces” at salesforce.com, which he joined in 1999 as the 11th employee, when the company was still operating out of a house on Telegraph Hill in San Francisco. In his 9 years at salesforce.com, Tien built salesforce.com’s original billing system and held a variety of executive roles in salesforce.com’s technology, marketing, and strategy organizations, including building out the product management & marketing organization, serving as Chief Marketing Officer for two years, and most recently as Chief Strategy Officer.

Tien personally oversaw the vision, direction, and design of the first 17 releases of salesforce.com’s award winning product line, including overseeing the launch of salesforce.com and the AppExchange. In 2004, Tien was named CMO of the Year Finalist by the CMO Council and BusinessWeek Magazine. Tien is also widely recognized as one of the thought leaders in the software-as-a-service industry. His podcast on the Secrets of Salesforce is widely cited and has been downloaded over 250,000 times since it was first published.

Prior to salesforce.com, Tien was at CrossWorlds Software, where he launched CrossWorlds’ Telecommunications business unit focused on integration with billing systems such as Portal, Kenan, Amdocs, and MetaSolv, and at Oracle Corporation where he managed several of Oracle’s largest Telecommunications accounts, including MCI, NYNEX, Bell Atlantic (now Verizon), and AT&T. Tien holds a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Cornell University and a master’s in business administration from the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
