Gabe Perez

General Manager, Power Applications
Coupa Software
As General Manager, Power Applications at Coupa Software, Gabe Perez is responsible for overseeing and driving the sales and success for Coupa's Power Applications (Sourcing, Supplier Information Management, Contract Lifecycle Management, Analytics and Inventory)
Gabe has deep knowledge of Coupa’s products and the customer consideration process, and he combines the two to speak directly, authentically and compellingly to their needs and concerns as they make what for many is a bold decision—purchasing cloud software from a relative newcomer to the enterprise space. He is a futuristic thinker willing to challenge the status quo, and skilled at emboldening others to do the same. He is good at rooting out the hidden assumptions and unstated fears that prevent organizations from moving forward with positive change.
Gabe is well positioned to help people see the bigger picture of how Value-as-a-Service is changing the way companies do business and how Coupa fits into that picture. It is not simply a replacement for current software. Like many software upstarts, it helps companies address areas of inefficiency that legacy software has left untouched.
Gabe has been at Coupa for more than 5 years. He has held a many roles, from being a project manager to running our presales team globally, prior to that he worked at Ariba where he participated in many global rollouts of their software.
