Marketing software giant Cision today announced that it has appointed Autodesk veteran Gregg Spratto as the company’s global chief operating officer.

Spratto was stationed at CA-based software/services company Autodesk for 20 years, joining in 1998 as a materials manager before later serving as M&A integration director, global product operations director and senior director before ultimately being named vice president of operations.

Cision in a statement said Spratto's appointment was borne out of a focus to integrate its recently-acquired technologies into its signature Cision Communications Cloud platform, which integrates earned media with paid and owned channels into a single platform, allowing communication pros better insights and the ability to establish a stronger multichannel content strategy.

Spratto will be based in Cision’s New York office.
