It was certainly an eventful year for Salesforce and Benioff, as the company returned 29% to give it a $36 billion market cap, according to Tech Crunch. While there were many fresh faces in the software as a service space, Salesforce retained its market share and wasn’t threatened by the plethora of new cloud IPOs.

Some people say I am obsessed with hiring, and they’re right”, Business Insider said. Nancy Connery, head of Salesforce’s Human Resources says qualities it takes to be on the Salesforce team are intelligence, communication skills and integrity. If there seems to be a poor fit, Connery says she isn’t afraid to “fire fast.”
