Salesforce Names COO Keith Block co-CEO With Benioff

Salesforce late Tuesday named Keith Block co-CEO, the latest promotion in his ascent to what many believe will be logical successor to company co-founder Marc Benioff. The 57-year-old Block, who is Salesforce vice chairman, has been Chief Operating Officer since February 2016. In his new role, Block will work alongside co-CEO Benioff, who remains chairman of the company he co-founded in 1999.
