In her new role, Nelson will utilize her wealth of experience as an executive in Fortune 500 organizations, as well as her experience bringing cutting-edge software solutions to the world's biggest brands, to lead Dachis Group's end-to-end go-to-market strategy and execution.
Nelson is now part of a veteran executive management team with decades of experience building successful marketing technology and services organizations. This includes Gary Skidmore, former President, Direct Marketing of Harte Hanks, as Chief Operating Officer; Peter Kim as Chief Solutions Architect, who was most recently Managing Director, Business Transformation at R/GA; Dominic Zuccarini as Executive Vice President of Global Sales, who was previously Vice President of Field Sales for Involver (acquired by Oracle) and Erik Huddleston as Chief Technology Officer and EVP of Products, who was formerly CTO at Inovis (acquired by GXS).
