Darrell Gehrt, Vice President of Sales brings more than a decade of experience in senior management roles at fast-growing SaaS companies, where he has built and led successful organizations. Darrell joined Cvent pre-IPO in January 2013 to run sales for the Web Survey Division where he led a rebrand effort to Inquisium, including a more robust go-to-market plan, website, and growth strategy.  In 2016, Darrell’s responsibilities expanded and today he also owns revenue responsibility for the mobile division including integrating sales teams of two mobile acquisitions.
