Kristina Nissen, SVP of Sales at Salesforce, has been in executive leadership for over 20 years leading enterprise sales teams supporting Fortune 500 and global enterprise customers. She is best known as a servant leader who is a fierce advocate for people, potential and equality.
Kristina joined the US Army Reserve out of high school, becoming a medic with the 447th Medical Company. She was inspired by the service of her father, a Vietnam Veteran, along with the opportunity to change her life through pursuit of a higher education with support from the GI Bill. As a first generation college student, she attributes much of her success to the impact her time in service made on her life and career. She’s deeply grateful for the lessons in leadership she learned while serving as a Sergeant in the Army Reserve.
Prior to her career in technology, she was a CPA, holding degrees in both Accounting & Business Management. She currently resides in Overland Park, KS with her two children Sydney and Avery.
