We are honored to present this month’s episode of Leadership Reimagined, “Leading with Humility and Humor” with Dan Springer, the Chief Executive Officer and director of DocuSign. Dan has nearly 30 years of executive leadership, driving innovation and hyper-growth across the Software-as-a-Service industry, and leading with humility.

Dan Springer speaks candidly about his journey as a full-time dad to CEO of DocuSign; transitioning a historically non-diverse executive leadership team to new levels of diversity; significant initiatives in reducing the carbon footprint; and what it means to manage one’s ego and its impact on employees.

As Dan reflects on the everlasting impact of this pandemic, he shares his optimism when he states, “I think I am a better listener and more open to the insights around the innovative ways we can run our business and create the employment brand where people can come here and do the work of their lives.”

Prior to joining DocuSign in 2017, Dan served as Chairman and CEO of Responsys, Managing Director of Modem Media, CEO at Telleo, Chief Marketing Officer at NextCard, and began his career as a consultant with McKinsey & Company. Dan serves on the board of directors for DocuSign and UiPath.
