Christopher M. Carrington Steps Down

Gary B. Moore Named CEO

ServiceSource (NASDAQ:SREV), a global leader in outsourced inside
sales, customer success and recurring revenue growth and retention
solutions, today announced that Christopher M. Carrington has stepped
down from his role as CEO. Effective today, Gary B. Moore, a member of
the Company's Board of Directors since November 2016 has been appointed
CEO. Both Carrington and Moore will remain on the Company's Board of
Directors following the change.

"Chris has been a transformational leader for ServiceSource during his
four years at the helm," said Bruce Dunlevie, ServiceSource's lead
independent director. "Under his watch, the Company enhanced its value
proposition, broadened its solution suite, diversified its end market
mix and client base and strengthened its financial profile. We are
thankful for his many contributions during his tenure and are
appreciative for his ongoing involvement on the Board."

"We have been fortunate to benefit from Gary's leadership, guidance and
oversight at the Board for the past two years," continued Dunlevie. "In
addition to his extensive professional experience and domain expertise,
Gary has an intimate understanding of ServiceSource's business model and
market opportunity and is highly qualified to step in as CEO. On behalf
of the Board and the ServiceSource team globally, we welcome Gary to
this role as he leads the Company forward in its strategic
transformation and positioning for the future."

"I am enthusiastic and optimistic about ServiceSource's strategy and the
team we have in place to execute the Company's ongoing transformation
initiatives," said Moore. "ServiceSource is uniquely able to address a
clear and compelling market need as companies reimagine their B2B
customer journey experiences in a digital era. I am honored to lead our
talented employees and to have the opportunity to work with the entire
senior leadership team, including our three newest leaders—CFO Rich
Walker, COO Debbie Dunnam, and Chief Marketing and Growth Officer Denzil
Samuels—as we ensure the Company is best-positioned to serve our
clients."

"I am proud of the progress our people have made to transform and
reposition the Company in recent years," said Carrington. "Through my
ongoing involvement on the Board, I look forward to supporting Gary, the
leaders on his team and the more than 3,700 ServiceSource employees who
support our global clients' transformation of their B2B customer
engagement models."

Mr. Carrington's departure is not related to any disagreements regarding
strategy, financial disclosures, accounting or legal matters.
