Adam Miller, founder of Cornerstone OnDemand, a global leader in people development solutions, will step down from his position as CEO of the company, effective June 15, 2020.

Miller, who will become co-chair of the Cornerstone Board of Directors, will be replaced by Phil Saunders, the former CEO of Saba Software.

Miller said, “I founded Cornerstone with a mission to help educate the world, and we have never wavered from that goal. Cornerstone has brought learning to millions of people around the globe and has become one of the world’s largest cloud computing companies in the process.

“I am proud of all that we have accomplished, and after two decades, I am excited to commit more fully to my passion for social entrepreneurship and public service. I am confident that Phil is the right leader to continue building our mission and to help our clients prepare for the new world of work.”

Phil Saunders was most recently the CEO of Saba Software, and was instrumental in the company’s growth and position as a HR technology leader. Prior to Saba, Saunders spent 20 years at Gemalto (previously SafeNet), where he served in key sales and marketing leadership roles before becoming Chief Revenue Officer and board member.

Saunders added, “Our priority will remain serving our customers and people, as well as executing on our business integration and driving value for our shareholders.

“Going forward, we have even more opportunities for growth and the ability to make an even bigger impact in the lives of people at work, every day. I am energised by this challenge and look forward to guiding Cornerstone’s continued success.”
