LOS ANGELES  – Feb. 22, 2021 – Marc Huffman, CEO of cloud accounting automation software leader BlackLine, Inc. (Nasdaq: BL), has been invited to speak this week at SaaStock Remote, the annual conference put on by SaaStock, a global community of software-as-a-service (SaaS) founders, executives and investors.

Organizations have experienced more change in the last year than in the past decade.  For BlackLine, this included quickly transitioning a workforce of more than 1,100 employees to a new world of remote work, pivoting to support customers during the global pandemic and handing the reins to new CEO Marc Huffman.  In a fireside chat with accredited leadership coach Wendy Rose entitled ‘It's Groundhog Day, Again!  Stepping Up, Succession Planning & Staying Motivated’, Mr. Huffman is expected to discuss the challenges he’s faced on the journey to CEO, the skills he’s developed to scale the fast-growing SaaS company and strategies for keeping employees motivated during disruptive times.

Huffman joined BlackLine in 2018 and became CEO on Jan. 1st, 2021.  He is expected to draw on his experience at BlackLine, as well as his prior role at NetSuite, where he most recently served as president of worldwide sales and distribution.  During his 14-year tenure, NetSuite grew from $3 million to $1 billion in annual revenues and became recognized as a global SaaS powerhouse.
