ATLANTA, April 25, 2023 – Allbound Inc. (“Allbound”), the leading provider of partner relationship management (PRM) software, is excited to announce the appointment of Paul Szemerenyi as the CEO of the company. With more than 20 years of executive leadership experience, Mr. Szemerenyi has a proven track record of developing and scaling world-class, high performance go-to-market organizations that deliver strong and consistent results.
Most recently, Mr. Szemerenyi served as Chief Revenue Officer at Bizzabo and has held senior leadership positions at hyper-growth organizations such as Appsense, Braze, and Fuze.

He began his career as an officer in the Royal Navy where he served on nuclear submarines and also serves as a member of the Invictus Growth Partners Guild.
Mr. Szemerenyi said, “In any market environment, channel sales often represent an enterprise’s largest revenue driver, and they have been critical to scaling the businesses I have led. As a former Allbound customer, I know first hand the power of the platform, people, and culture. Now as CEO, I am excited to enable channel partnership success for global enterprises.”
The Allbound PRM platform allows companies to accelerate sales and marketing in reseller, referral, and tech-integrated partnerships. Customers have seen tremendous results with Allbound, having sold more than $100 billion through their platform and shortened sales cycles by over 60%. According to Forrester, the estimated market size for channel software like Allbound’s will grow at a 15% CAGR from $3.2 billion in 2022 to $5.7 billion by 2026, driven by increasing numbers of global partnerships and the proliferation of hybrid work environments.
