“My ultimate mission is to increase Celonis customer value to the 10 power. Not only think 10 years ahead, but also amplify our innovations in execution management by a factor of 10,” said Eugenio Cassiano, newly appointed SVP of Celonis Labs. “Celonis Labs will focus on moonshots, experiments and R&D to unlock the world’s processes, save billions of dollars in business inefficiencies, and pioneer the shift to a more sustainable future.”
