Lee Turner

Spend management platform Coupa has named Leagh Turner as its new CEO, effective Nov. 13, the company announced.

Turner is joining Coupa from human resources technology provider Ceridian, where she has been co-CEO for nearly two years and was president and COO prior to that. She helped to double Ceridian’s revenue during her time there and is “an excellent leader with extensive experience scaling companies for growth, empowering teams and fostering a culture of community and authenticity,” according to Coupa board chairman J. Charles Goodman. Prior to her time with Ceridian, Turner also had senior leadership roles at SAP and Oracle.

Longtime CEO Rob Bernshteyn announced his departure from Coupa earlier this year, and Goodman served as interim CEO. Turner will join Coupa’s board of directors.

Coupa, which was acquired by software investment firm Thoma Bravo this year, entered the travel bookingspace last year with a module built from its acquisition of Pana.
