Melissa Puls

Chief Marketing Officer at Ivanti



As the head of global marketing for Ivanti, Melissa Puls was the driving force behind the IT company’s early 2022 rebrand, which crystallized its devotion to “Making the Everywhere Workplace Possible.” Puls and her team have generated hundreds of millions of dollars in deals, driving a B2H (business to human) approach that elevates both employees’ and customers’ needs to boost revenue and grow sales pipelines exponentially. Puls leverages more than 20 years of experience in go to market strategies in the technology industry and a proven track record developing successful marketing programs that deliver bottom-line results. Prior to joining Ivanti, Puls held CMO and marketing leadership positions with Progress, Iron Mountain, Infor and Avid. A proud second-generation CMO, Puls credits the influence of her mother — a Sr. Marketing Executive at Kronos (now SKG) — for her interest in and passion for marketing; indeed, Puls began her own career stuffing envelopes for Inside Sales at Kronos right out of college. A passionate advocate both for women in leadership roles and for remote work, Puls frequently writes for the Newsweek Expert Forum about global trends such as the Great Resignation, hybrid work and employee needs. Puls lives with her family on Cape Cod, MA.
