New York, December 21, 2018 —ExO Works, the advisory firm which helps companies execute innovation using the Exponential Organizations methodology, is excited to welcome Tony Saldanha as Vice Chairman of the company.
As Vice Chairman, Tony Saldanha’s role will focus on assisting the leadership team of ExO Works and their clients to develop innovation strategies and roadmaps that complement ExO Works’ core offerings. This addition to the ExO Works team aligns with the company’s mission to be an innovation partner for clients, focus on long-term relationships, and shift organizations to adopt exponential behaviors and mindset. This new approach also supports ExO Works’ continued development of the premium ExO Sprint process.
“Tony was one of the first adopters of the ExO Sprint. He had the same frustrations, aspirations, and needs our Sprint clients are coming to us to address. That experience, coupled with his aptitude for championing new models, will help us achieve 10x results with these Sprints,“ said Salim Ismail, Co-Founder & Chairman of ExO Works.
ExO Works’ core offering, the 10-week premium ExO Sprint, provides organizations with the coaching, framework, and support they need in order to compete and succeed alongside the world's fastest-growing companies. This process leverages the collective expertise of the ExO Lever Ecosystem of technology specialists—who advise, inspire, test, and fund a portfolio of initiatives capable of moving the needle for even the largest of organizations.
“Now the question Tony’s helping us answer is, what happens after the premium ExO Sprint? How can we empower and support new and current innovation strategies? That’s the next phase of fulfilling our 10x purpose and turning more companies into exponential organizations,” said Mike Lingle, ExO Works Chief Growth Officer.
Tony brings three decades of experience as a globally recognized business leader to ExO Works. Over a 27-year career with P&G, Tony ran operations in its multi-billion dollar IT and Shared group, and for his last role, created and led an industry-wide disruptive innovation group for shared services. His team at P&G ran the first-ever ExO Sprint.
"I am delighted that Tony is joining us as Vice Chairman as ExO Works moves into its next phase of our growth journey. Tony had a stellar track record of delivering innovation at P&G that moved the needle in meaningful ways—from revenue, operational efficiencies, and customer satisfaction perspectives. With Tony's help, we are continuing to fine-tune our premium ExO Sprints while further optimizing our growth strategy. Our clients will benefit greatly from the experience Tony brings to ExO Works,” says Emilie Sydney-Smith, CEO of ExO Works.
