by Kevin Cheng

We're thrilled to announce our next Advisor, Al Conhagen!

Al’s appointment is a significant milestone for Aviso as it adds a new life sciences operator and leader to Aviso’s extensive community of knowledgeable GTM executives to help guide the growth of the first and only end-to-end AI revenue operating system for revenue and GTM teams.

Al Conhagen brings a distinguished career in sales leadership to the table. An experienced Chairman of the Board, investor, advisor, Board of Trustees member and senior leader, Al has held successful leadership roles across companies such as Medidata Solutions, Callidus Cloud and PeopleSoft. At Medidata, Al was instrumental in helping the company become the market leader and industry standard for clinical trial software. Al’s success leading mid-market global commercial sales resulted in annual revenue soaring to $400 million and more than 2,000 customers.

“We sold clinical trial software across life sciences and large research centers, such as the National Cancer Institute, Mayo Clinic and Memorial Sloan Kettering. Whether pharma, healthcare, biotech, or medical devices, all organizations are run in their own unique ways,” said Al Conhagen, Advisor to Aviso. “As the life science industry continues to evolve, Aviso’s platform is uniquely designed to help commercial organizations deliver meaningful outcomes, from conception-to-prediction-to execution.”

Aviso stands at the intersection of ambitious revenue growth and operational efficiency, a balance that can be a challenge for fast growing organizations and one that was recently underscored as the most critical need in the latest CXO Business Confidence Survey from Constellation Research. As organizations grapple with the dual mandate of expansion and efficiency, they often find themselves hindered by the limitations of legacy tooling requiring additional point solutions. In response to this challenge, Aviso’s platform is built for several different GTM models and, “brings sales engagement, revenue operations, revenue intelligence, revenue ops data automation, marketing automation, customers success, and CDP together with a strong automation and AI foundation.” With the addition of the Aviso AI Chief of Staff, MIKI, customers can now do more with data and act on insights faster, more conversationally, and accurately all through the palm of their hand.

“Al’s bar of excellence is very high given his history of leading organizations to new heights. We’re excited to add Al’s life sciences expertise to the team to help our customers plan, operationalize and scale their launches and new GTM models faster,” said Trevor Rodrigeus-Templar, Aviso’s President & CEO.
