With more than 20 years of experience, Adams has devoted her career to building high-performing organizations across technology verticals.

Adams went on to serve as Chief People Officer at Qlik, one of the fastest-growing technology companies in the world, and was, most recently, Chief Culture and Talent Officer for McGraw-Hill Education.
As Sprinklr’s Chief Culture and Talent Officer, Adams will focus on ensuring that the company’s values and culture drive corporate and individual success. She will also help implement concepts laid out in her book, “It Takes More than Casual Fridays and Free Coffee,” which explains how people and companies can recognize opportunities to engage and energize their teams, develop creative strategies to meet changing market requirements, and build high-performing cultures.
The addition of Adams to Sprinklr’s executive team follows a number of milestones for the company in the past year, including:
