Tara’s extensive experience leading large organizations to fantastic performance is remarkable, and she’s just the right person to make our ambitious expansion plans a reality. We’re determined to keep bringing in extraordinary, high-profile outside talent to keep Optimove one step ahead of the pack and continue providing prospects and clients with the best CRM Marketing offering and service possible.”
“I’m excited to join Optimove to help lead the company through the next phase of its rapid growth,” said Tara Bryant. “In Optimove, I’ve found a company with next-generation, game-changing AI technology, strong momentum, and an excellent team. The core Optimove offering of personalization and orchestration of customer journeys at scale is key to any brand’s ability to prosper in the modern marketing landscape. I look forward to playing a major role in the company’s next big leap, which will undoubtedly be successful if the company’s recent growth is any indication.”
The hiring comes on the heels of the company’s recent high-profile appointments of Scott McNabb as VP Revenue, Americas, Jeremy Remus as Head of France, Peter Miles as Director of Sales, and Jeff Cleminson as Director of Client management.
