Samsara names new Worldwide Field Operations president

IoT Connected Operations Cloud provider Samsara Inc. appointed Lara Caimi as President of Worldwide Field Operations. 

Caimi brings nearly 25 years of experience in the industry, once serving as Chief Customer and Partner Officer at ServiceNow and overseeing nearly 2,500 global employees across organizations including customer success, professional services, ecosystem training, customer experience and channel ecosystem. Prior to that, she took on a role of ServiceNow’s Chief Strategy Officer where she helped chart the growth strategy from ~$1.5B revenue to the current ~$7.5B+. 

“Samsara has seen rapid growth in just eight years since its founding,” Caimi said. “A key driver is Samsara’s industry-leading platform that is transforming how companies operate, though just as important are the teams that bring that platform to life for customers. I am excited to build upon Samsara’s success as we continue to scale to meet demand, and deliver next-level value for an ever-expanding customer base.”

Caimi will now report to Sanjit Biswas, CEO and Co-founder of Samsara.

“I am very excited to welcome Lara to our executive team as we head into our next chapter of growth,” said Biswas. “Samsara’s continued momentum reflects the large market opportunity ahead of us as we help digitize the world of physical operations. Lara’s proven leadership helping ServiceNow scale fourfold makes her the perfect fit to accelerate our business while providing a best-in-class experience for our customers.”

Caimi follows in the footsteps of Andy McCall, Chief Revenue Officer, after his retirement with more than six years with Samsara. McCall plans to stay on through the end of the year to ensure a smooth transition.

“I am extremely appreciative of all that Andy has done for Samsara throughout his years of leadership. Andy has built the sales and customer outcomes team into a world-class organization and has contributed tremendously to our trajectory. All of us at Samsara wish Andy the best in his well-deserved retirement as we welcome Lara to the company,” said Biswas.

Caimi has been a Board Director at Confluent since 2020 and holds a bachelor’s degree in Economics and English Literature from St. Olaf College, a MIB from the University of Sydney as a Fulbright Scholar, and an MBA from Harvard Business School. In the early years of her career, she partnered at Bain & Company, where she advised technology companies on various topics including growth and go-to-market strategy.
