Khoros Announces Changes in the Leadership Team

Khoros has announced the expansion of its leadership team with three new executive appointments.

The company has promoted Dustin Williams to Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and Ryan Studer to Chief Product Officer (CPO), while Brian Nourani has been named the new Chief Revenue Officer (CRO).

Dustin Williams brings over 20 years of industry experience in engineering, DevOps, quality assurance, and organizational leadership. His pragmatic approach to complex problems has helped drive continuous organizational improvement, leading to sustained business growth and value to customers. Prior to the promotion, Williams served as Vice President of Engineering at Khoros.

Khoros's new CPO, Ryan Studer, served as CPO on the founding team of Topbox, leading product and engineering functions before Khoros acquired Topbox in 2021. For the past eight years, he has served as a customer experience consultant for several large enterprises and led SaaS product development teams.

“The past year has been transformative in our industry, and we need leaders that champion collaborative alignment across the organization to drive outcomes and ROI for our customers. I am excited to promote Dustin and Ryan and bring Brian to the team as we steer the company into a new phase of focus and innovation,” said Chris Tranquill, CEO of Khoros.

Brian Nourani brings more than 13 years of senior sales leadership experience providing strategic and operational guidance for revenue generation to the C-suite. Before joining Khoros, Brian served as Senior Vice President, Global Sales at Wrike, a Vista Equity Company, where he expanded the business in North America, EMEA, and APAC.
