Coherent Hires Industry Vet to Drive Global Partners, Channels

Coherent, a company that unlocks the power of spreadsheets and helps to convert, control and connect them to enterprise workflows, has appointed Scott Musson to lead the company’s partner and channel motions globally.

As Chief Partnership Officer, Musson is charged with growing the global partner ecosystem. He previously has built partner alliances and channel programs for multiple hyper-scale tech companies including those which he helped scale to more than $1 billion in revenue.

Most recently, Musson led the full strategic partner program at enterprise data and search company Elastic. Prior to that, he ran partnerships and alliances at Cloudera and spent seven years at Red Hat during its critical growth ramp, implementing the complete structure around global strategic alliances.

Earlier in his career, Musson spent time at VMware, where he was responsible for all strategy, products and alliances with VMware‘s key OEM partners instrumental in driving the company’s hypergrowth.

“From our marketplace partners like Microsoft (Azure), Amazon Web Services (AWS), and Snowflake (Marketplace) to our systems integration partners like Accenture, Cap Gemini, Cognizant, Deloitte, EY, and PwC to industry-specific partners like Capco, Duck Creek, iJoin, OpenFin, and many others, Coherent helps partners build business practices around the massive market need to control spreadsheets and bring them into the modern age,” said John Brisco, Coherent co-founder and CEO.

“Scott brings world-class expertise, energy, and connectivity that, together with our partners, will help solve critical business challenges for our clients world-wide,” Brisco said.

“The market potential for Coherent Spark and for our partner ecosystem is almost incalculable,” Musson said. “What appealed to me was the immediate business value when Coherent Spark converts even the most complex business logic, including rules, calculations, and data from any spreadsheet, into enterprise-grade code, which can then connect to any application or business workflow. I have been fortunate to be part of some incredible software growth stories and Coherent has the right team at the right time to create a true tech legend.”
