Data, Privacy, and Salesforce’s Focus on Both with Patrick Stokes, EVP Platform Shared Services at Salesforce

Patrick Stokes, the Executive Vice President of Platform Shared Services at Salesforce, first got into technology the same way many other leaders first get into technology: through video games. Games such as Quake and Doom have a special place in Patrick’s heart not only because of how fun they are, but also because they are open-source. The open-source aspect is what sparked Patrick’s interest in technology and has kept him rising through the industry. Today Patrick is continuing to utilize his passion and drive his interest toward all of the innovative things he and his team are working on at Salesforce. He discusses that and more on this episode.
