Award-winning firm will offer full breadth of Salesforce consulting solutions for financial services organizations

Palm Coast, Florida, March 19, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Coastal Cloud, the top-ranked Salesforce consulting partner, has announced a new financial services practice, appointing industry veteran Jonathon “JP” Owens to run the new group.

Coastal Cloud’s financial services practice offers multi-cloud solutions for all the sector’s sub-verticals, including banking, wealth and asset management, capital markets, and insurance. 

JP Owens, Coastal Cloud’s new Managing Director of Financial Services, has more than a decade of experience working with financial services institutions, helping to identify new ways to drive transformation, growth, and business impact. His successful track record of modernizing companies draws on his industry knowledge, his technology acumen, and his data expertise.
“Financial services organizations are undergoing massive digital transformation right now, powered by the entire Salesforce ecosystem, and especially Data Cloud and AI. That’s why it makes perfect sense for Coastal Cloud to double down on the financial services industry as a cornerstone of our next phase of growth,” says Eric Berridge, CEO of Coastal Cloud. “I’m thrilled to welcome JP Owens to the Coastal Cloud team— he is a leader that has a stellar reputation both within Salesforce and with customers.

Additionally, JP has been a Salesforce Marketing Champion since 2020, and is the host of the Transcending CRM Podcast, where he explores how the Salesforce ecosystem drives dynamic growth for both businesses and individuals.

JP’s most recent role was as Managing Director of Silverline’s Banking and Lending Practice, where he worked with financial services institutions that oversee between $1-$125 billion in assets. Previously, JP served as the Director of Digital Product Experience at First Financial Bank, where he led multiple functional teams across digital transformation, marketing, and strategy. 

“As someone who has spent the past decade at the intersection of digital transformation and financial services, I’m so pleased to be bringing my experience to Coastal Cloud, a firm that clients absolutely love, and the most acclaimed consultancy in the Salesforce ecosystem,” says JP Owens, Coastal Cloud’s Managing Director of Financial Services. “For years now, I’ve admired Coastal Cloud and what Tim, Sara, Eric, and our hundreds of colleagues have built. I can’t wait to contribute to the culture of customer success, and drive innovation to deliver business impact for our clients.”
