"I want to thank John Donahoe and ServiceNow's board of directors for conducting such a high-quality global search and providing me with an exceptional slate of candidates to consider," he says.

"Gina is the right person to join me and our leadership team, help continue ServiceNow's remarkable momentum, and drive our next phase of shared growth and success with our customers."
