Access Intelligence (AIM: ACC), the technology innovator delivering Software-as-a-Service (“SaaS”) solutions for the communications and marketing industries, is pleased to announce the appointment of Lisa Gilbert as non-executive director with immediate effect.
Lisa has significant experience in the technology sector having worked for IBM for 25 years, holding a variety of roles globally. She is currently VP of Brand Sponsorship & Content at Kyndra, an IBM Company after moving from being General Manager of the IBM Marketing Services Center.
Lisa’s recent roles within IBM have ranged from VP Marketing of IBM Growth Markets based in Shanghai, China where she led 300 staff across China, APAC, Latin America and EMEA. Other roles include Chief Marketing Officer at IBM Japan, Chief Marketing and Communications Officer at IBM UK and Ireland and Vice President, Marketing Transformation at IBM North America.
Lisa Gilbert further enhances the strength and expertise on the Board of the Company following the appointments as non-executive directors of Sarah Vawda, corporate development director for Johnson Matthey, in March 2021 and Katie Puris, Head of Global Brand & Creative at TikTok, in June 2021.
Christopher Satterthwaite, Chairman of Access Intelligence, commented: “Lisa’s incredible tenure at IBM, spearheading innovation and digital transformation across the business globally, makes her an invaluable asset to our board at such an exciting time in our evolution.
She is a truly transformational leader and we are very lucky to have her as a guide in the next phase of our growth. Her wealth of experience within APAC is hugely beneficial as we establish the next generation of media intelligence products that delivers the best service to our growing global customer base after the takeover of Isentia.
We’ve made some fantastic additions to the board lately, and I am delighted to add Lisa to our number as we continue to push our gender divide towards a predominantly female board – a rare sight amongst technology businesses.”
Lisa Gilbert, Non-Executive Director of Access Intelligence said: “I am thrilled to be joining Access Intelligence at such an exciting time in its growth trajectory. With the most recent acquisition of Isentia, giving Access Intelligence a true global footprint, I believe the time is right to join the team to collaborate on go-to-market, branding initiatives and beyond.
I’ve spent a large part of my career scaling organisations globally and I can recognise a business that will change the landscape. Access Intelligence is in a prime position to be a market leading innovator, and disruptor for the industry.”
