Okta names Splunk’s Bill Hustad as Global Channel Chief

Okta has appointed Splunk’s Bill Hustad (pictured) to the role of SVP of Global Partners and Alliances, replacing recently departed Steve Dodenhoff.

His new remit is to lead Okta’s global partner team, where he’ll be responsible for Okta’s indirect GTM strategy, execution and bookings globally.

Speaking about his responsibilities, Hudson said: “I'll be spending a lot of time externally with our partners, learning and asking them about what’s working, and how we've been creating customer satisfaction together. From there, I’ll take action and communicate our efforts, performance and the opportunities ahead.”

“A broader partner ecosystem will help us expand to new countries and geographies. Also, partners can actually start creating full-stack solutions for customers, using both Okta technology and other technology partners, that can drive value in the marketplace.”
