NEW YORK — Zack Jenkins, Senior Vice President of Sales and Account Management at Critical Mention—the leading all-in-one media monitoring and intelligence platform—has been named to The Software Report’s list of The Top 25 Software Sales Executives of 2021.
According to The Software Report, “the awardees of 2021 were selected based on a thorough review of hundreds of nomination submissions and a close evaluation of each nominee’s drive, intellect, integrity and contribution to company performance, among other factors. They are the top performing sales leaders, as reported by their peers and colleagues, in the software industry. Through their dedicated effort and consistent energy, they drive customer acquisition and expansion and make strong company growth a reality.”
Jenkins joined the Critical Mention team in 2011 as a sales executive, was later promoted to sales director, and was promoted again in 2018 to Vice President of Sales and Account Management. He currently shapes the organization’s sales and go-to-market strategy, as well as negotiating partner agreements. Before joining Critical Mention, Jenkins worked as a private wealth manager at Allen Partners. He received his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree in finance, entrepreneurship, and international business from Boston University and attended the Copenhagen Business School with a focus on international business.
“I am humbled to be included in such a prestigious list and honored to represent Critical Mention,” Jenkins said. “In reality, this recognition is really a tribute to our amazing Sales and Account Management teams, as well as all of the technical work that goes into making the Critical Mention platform the industry standard for PR, communications and marketing professionals.”
Jenkins’ inclusion on the list comes on the heels of Vishal Padhye, Chief Technology Officer at Critical Mention, being named one of PRWeek’s Top 25 Most Influential People in communications technology in February. As the company continues to hit new milestones for growth, President and CEO Don Yount sees these individual accolades as part of a larger story.
“Zack has done an incredible job leading our sales team and helping us to grow our business,” Yount said. “The recognition he is receiving now is a reflection not only of the fantastic work he has done but also of Critical Mention’s increasingly positive impact on our industry.”
