Sydney, Australia – Experience management tech Medallia has announced that it has appointed its newest country manager for ANZ, Heather Paterson, former director of the Asia Pacific and Japan in the New York-headquartered Intralinks.
Medallia provides a SaaS platform, the Medallia Experience Cloud, which services the market in the understanding and management of experience of customers, employees, and citizens via the capturing of experience signals from in-person daily journeys, digital channels, and IoT interactions.
As the company continues to invest across the APAC region, Paterson will be tasked to lead the Australia team, where she is also said to spearhead the launch of ground operations in New Zealand, expected over the coming quarters.
Gavin Selkirk, Medallia’s APAC vice president and general manager believes Paterson’s strong leadership background makes her the best person to lead the country’s growth.
“Heather’s results-driven approach, ability to build and manage teams and [her] strong background in financial services technology – an important and growing sector for us – means she’s ideally suited to run our business across Australia and New Zealand,” said Selkirk.
“Australia was Medallia’s first office in the region, and as it continues to grow, we look forward to building our New Zealand presence which Heather will play an integral role in building,” Selkirk added.
