Elizabeth Pinkham - EVP, Global Real Estate
Elizabeth Pinkham is responsible for Salesforce’s global real estate strategy, overseeing the company’s real estate portfolio and workplace design, as well as creating one-of-a-kind experiences for Salesforce’s employees, customers, partners, and the community.
Under Pinkham’s leadership, she’s unveiled ten Salesforce Towers across the globe spanning the company’s headquarters in San Francisco to Indianapolis, Atlanta, Chicago, New York, Dublin, London, Tokyo, and Sydney. Bringing her brand influence to the workplace experience, she introduced the Ohana Floor, an open flexible hospitality space located at the top of the company’s Towers. Typically a space for executive offices, Pinkham took a unique approach to designing these floors by opening them up to the community. During the day, the space is available for employees and their guests and on weeknights and weekends, the Ohana Floor is open to non-profits and education groups to host their events at no cost.
A Salesforce veteran of over 20 years, Pinkham was previously responsible for global strategic events. She oversaw a wide range of brand and event experiences, including management of the company’s annual Dreamforce event in San Francisco since its first program in 2003 to Dreamforce 2016, which drew 171,000 registered attendees and 16 million plus online viewers.
Before joining Salesforce, Pinkham held marketing positions at Oracle and Sybase. Pinkham holds a B.A. from the University of California, Berkeley.
