Share

Planview, a global leader in Portfolio Management and Work Management solutions, today announced that Mark Fields, former President and CEO of Ford Motor Company, has joined Planview’s Board of Directors as Chairman.

“Today’s business environment is increasingly complex, and it’s more important than ever for companies to adapt quickly to meet the demands of the market,” said Fields. “To do so effectively, companies must create a clear connection between the strategy and work across the organization so they can move with agility – without losing sight of the most important business outcomes and impact.”

Since stepping down as CEO of Ford in 2017, Fields has served as advisor to both established and emerging companies, particularly in the technology sector. He currently sits on the boards of Qualcomm, CLEAResult, and Tanium, and recently served as Interim CEO of Hertz. Fields previously served on the board of IBM and is currently a senior advisor to TPG Capital.

“Mark brings first-hand knowledge of enabling strategic transformations at global businesses,” said Razat Gaurav, chief executive officer, Planview. “His tremendous leadership experience at organizations with scale will help Planview as we accelerate our next phase of growth and build the future of connected work. We’re thrilled to have him leading our board, and I am personally excited to learn from his broad experience base.”

“Planview has a proven track record of category leadership and operational excellence. This, along with strong vision from Razat and the Planview executive team, and the backing of TPG Capital and TA Associates, has driven the company’s tremendous growth -- and will continue to do so in the years ahead. I look forward to being a part of Planview's next chapter,” added Fields.

Fields’ appointment as Chairman at Planview follows a series of significant milestones for the company. In January, Planview announced record Fiscal Year ‘21 results, continuing a trend of strong growth momentum. In February, Planview announced that it was recognized as a Leader in the recent report: The Forrester Wave™: Strategic Portfolio Management Tools, Q1 2022.
