Campbell, Calif.-based 7, which bills itself as the "intuitive consumer experience company," has hired former Symantec exec Bill Robbins as its new chief operating officer. Robbins was executive vice president of worldwide sales and services at Symantec from 2009-2012.
Robbins, who brings more than 20 years of sales, operations and leadership experience to his new role, will lead 7's strategic, sales and global operations functions, reporting directly to founder and CEO PV Kannan.
"With his strong strategic sales, enterprise expertise, and market-tested leadership abilities, Bill will help 7 to navigate through continued growth and global expansion," said Kannan. "He will help fulfill our mission to make the customer experience intuitive."
Robbins also held leadership roles as the head of sales and operations organizations within Veritas, prior to that company's acquisition by Symantec.
"I am excited to join the executive team at 7," said Robbins. "With the global activities and opportunities that lie ahead of us, I look forward to moving 7 to the next stage in its growth as we continue to redefine the entire customer service industry."
