TextUs, the leading text messaging platform that allows businesses to have engaging two-way conversations at scale, welcomes Nick Madison, CRO, to its executive leadership team.
Nick brings more than 20 years of solution selling and leadership experience, having most recently led the sales efforts at Payscale, the industry leader in compensation data and technology. While at Payscale, Nick oversaw net new and customer sales globally as well as customer growth, managing a team of both individual contributors and sales leads.

Prior to joining Payscale, Nick spent more than 15 years in progressive sales leadership roles at ServiceSource, the global leader in outsourced inside sales and customer success solutions, trusted by global market leaders like Cisco, Microsoft, and Google. Nick’s expertise in enterprise selling and leading global sales teams will serve TextUs well as the company expands its foothold in larger organizations looking to optimize the motions of their recruiting, selling, marketing and workforce management efforts.
“I’m thrilled to be joining such a great team,” notes Nick. “TextUs is a leader in a critical and emerging space around how we better communicate with prospects, customers, and recruits. The platform drives significant incremental value by improving the ways organizations can engage with their target audiences and I look forward to continuing to define this space and deliver additional ways to help our customers,” he adds.
