Salesforce's top marketing executive to depart

Salesforce chief marketing officer Stephanie Buscemi is leaving the company, according to a Tuesday tweet, a key departure that comes as the enterprise software giant prepares to acquire Slack, Salesforce's most costly acquisition to-date.

Buscemi joined Salesforce in 2014. Sarah Franklin, one of the leaders of the company's successful skill development program known as Trailhead, is taking over as CMO, according to a Salesforce spokesperson.

Buscemi's departure is the latest in a string of executive defects, most notably former co-CEO Keith Block's decision to step-down in early 2020. But Buscemi's is particularly noteworthy given the pending $28 billion acquisition of Slack and the importance of marketing its new offerings.
