Workday, maker of software for corporate human resources and finance departments, announced a trio of executive appointments on Thursday that it hopes will help it accelerate revenue growth.

The Pleasanton, Calif. company (WDAY) appointed Mike Stankey as vice chairman and elected him to its board. Stankey will focus on expansion into new markets and leadership development, among other things. He was previously president and chief operating officer.

It also promoted Mark Peek and Phil Wilmington to co-president. Peek, previously the company’s chief financial officer, will focus on finance and operations; Wilmington, previously worldwide head of sales, will lead sales and customer service.

All three will report to CEO Aneel Bhusri.

As Fortune wrote in April, the company recently has been gaining traction among large companies who are slowly learning that it offers more than just HR software. But its stock recently tumbled some 5% to $88 after it released better-than-expected quarterly earnings.
