In this new role, Ashley leads the Sisense product and marketing organizations, setting strategy and vision for the Sisense analytics platform and communicating its value to the industry.

Ashley has also served in key roles at Amazon, Oracle, and NASA.
An innate builder, Shelly Landsmann joins Sisense as Vice President of International Sales and Global Alliances, and is responsible for the development of worldwide customer channels aimed at both fortifying and building new partnerships with the major cloud vendors. Prior to Sisense, Shelly served as Microsoft Israel’s CEO, where she led the business and operations of Microsoft throughout Israel. She also served in roles such as CMO of Enterprise Services and as Public Sector lead.
As General Counsel, Sarah Ward leads Sisense’s global legal team and legal strategy with an eye toward helping Sisense scale. Previously she was Assistant General Counsel, playing a large role guiding MongoDB through its IPO process. Before that, she was Senior Corporate Counsel for Securities and M&A at Criteo.
