Veeva Systems (NYSE: VEEV) today announced that Brent Bowman will become the company’s next chief financial officer. Bowman will assume the role of CFO after a transition period of approximately 90 days with current CFO Tim Cabral, who previously announced his intent to retire and assume a new role as an advisor to Veeva.
“We’re thrilled to add Brent to the leadership team,” said Peter Gassner, founder and CEO of Veeva. “Brent is a seasoned executive with more than two decades of experience in the technology industry. Most importantly, Brent shares our core principles of integrity, customer success, and operational excellence.”
“I want to thank Tim for his contributions to Veeva and our customers. He has been a great partner and friend to me over the past 10 years,” said Gassner. “We will continue to benefit from his leadership and the operational foundation he built during his time at Veeva.”
Bowman brings to Veeva more than 25 years of corporate and operational experience across the technology industry, including software, hardware, services, and semiconductors. He joins Veeva from 7.ai, where he has been CFO since 2018. Over his career, Bowman also held senior financial positions at Intel, Altera, and Sun Microsystems with responsibilities for financial planning and analysis, M&A, accounting, SEC reporting, internal audit, and treasury.
“I’m thrilled to join Veeva and look forward to contributing to a company known for customer success,” said Bowman. “It’s an exciting opportunity to join Veeva’s leadership team and support the company’s long-term growth, as well as life sciences’ mission to improve and extend human life.”
