Vladimir Gerasimov

Director, Product Manager

After enjoying the windy steppes of Kazakhstan, freezing-cold Siberian winters and endless rains in Seattle, Vladimir settled down in sunny San Francisco where he helps to drive various products at Salesforce HQ. He started his career as an engineer and soon developed a strong interest for cloud technologies. After spending three years at Microsoft working on Sharepoint Online, he joined Salesforce to help to deliver global picklists – one of the most requested features in Salesforce history. Always feeling passionate for customer success, he transitioned to product management, and for the two and a half years he was in charge of custom metadata types, custom objects, custom fields, picklists and a newly developed dependency API.
