Sitecore Embarks on US $1.2B Investment Plan to Accelerate Growth

Highly Accomplished Senior Executive and Business Leader to Drive Next Phase of Growth Across the Region

San Francisco, Jan. 19, 2021 — Sitecore®, the global leader in digital experience management software, announced today that it has secured backing for a large-scale growth plan fuelled by US $1.2 billion in investment. This massive investment, the largest-ever capital investment in the martech space, comes less than five months after Steve Tzikakis joined the digital experience delivery leader as CEO.

Sitecore is positioned for growth, achieving record revenues over the last three quarters. According to data from McKinsey,1 the industry jumped five years forward in consumer and business digital adoption in a matter of just eight weeks due to the shift in demand for digital experience solutions caused by the pandemic.

“An investment of this magnitude in our industry is unprecedented,” said Steve Tzikakis, CEO, Sitecore. “As companies and consumers search for more seamless ways to communicate, co-ordinate and collaborate during this momentous period, Sitecore’s investment will supercharge product innovation in order to better enable deeper and more engaging experiences across the entire customer journey.”

“Coates Hire has been on a digital transformation journey leveraging Sitecore’s platform since before the pandemic, but in the past year we’ve seen demand for more flexible and engaging digital experiences skyrocket for the infrastructure, construction and mining sectors,” said Kirsty McKay, group manager - portfolio delivery & digital transformation, Coates Hire. “Relying on Sitecore’s content to commerce offerings allowed us to succeed in very uncertain times. We can’t wait to see what customer-focused innovations come next from Sitecore.”

Sitecore’s investment plan arrives as the company celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. Founded in 2001, the market-leading digital experience solutions provider works with more than a third of the Fortune 100 and close to half of the S&P Global 100 and Dow Jones Global Titans. Sitecore also supports three of the top 10 retailers in the world, 16 of the 18 largest financial brands, half of the largest healthcare groups, and six of the 10 largest car manufacturers.
