isolved hires James Norwood as Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer
HR software platform isolved has welcomed James Norwood to its team as chief marketing and strategy officer. In his role, Mr. Norwood will be responsible for leading the company's high-growth marketing efforts, including go-to-market and product strategy, demand generation, brand awareness and advocacy. "Anyone who has worked with James, knows the passion and purpose he brings to an organization, which makes him widely respected by customers, partners, colleagues and competitors alike," said isolved CEO Mark Duffell. "With James at the helm of our talented marketing and product marketing teams, I'm convinced even more organizations will be able to employ, enable and empower their people with isolved People Cloud." Mr. Norwood is a 30 year veteran in the enterprise software space. He comes to isolved from digital experience platform Episerver, where he served as EVP strategy, chief of staff and CMO. He has also held leadership roles at KANA Software, Verint and Epicor Software, and he is a board director at SugarCRM. "Human Resources was often the last department to benefit from digital transformation initiatives, but today's work environment has raised employee experience to the top of the progressive business agenda," said Mr. Norwood. "From the moment I engaged with isolved I realized they were the hidden gem of the HCM cloud technology space, a company providing comprehensive capabilities and services you normally associate with enterprise vendors but a rapid time to value and total cost of ownership more typically found with small to medium sized business solutions. It's a success story that needs to be told."
