Eitan Saban brings 20 years of technology leadership experience across product management, development, accounts support, professional services, marketing, and sales to his new GM role at DocuSign.

“DocuSign has become the eSignature global standard to accelerate business results for companies of every size, industry, and geography,” said Saban. “After seeing 11 of the top 15 insurance companies, ten of the top 15 wealth management companies, and high tech companies like salesforce.com, Microsoft, HP, NetSuite, and LinkedIn all standardize on DocuSign in hundreds of departments and use cases, I had to join the industry leader. Even more exciting is bringing the secure, powerful, and reliable DocuSign platform to APAC customers and partners.”
