Jostle, a startup in the social intranet marketplace, this week announcd the appointment of Deb Lavoy as the vice president of marketing.
Prior to Jostle, Lavoy worked as the Director of Strategic Marketing for Waterloo's OpenText.
Jostle hopes Lavoy will help it expand its enterprise market presence and accelerate customer acquisition. This year, the Vancouver-based company has increased its customer base seven-fold.
“Lavoy shares our passion for helping leaders enable their people and create vibrant workplaces. She will help us communicate how our new kind of enterprise software quickly delivers aligned organizations and engaged employees,” said Brad Palmer, Jostle's CEO.
“I’ve been out there, deeply embedded in the social workplace ecosystem—looking at tools, approaches, philosophies, and results; Jostle is different,” says Lavoy. “Jostle both celebrates work and the people who do it, while helping to build a stronger leadership, stronger organizations, and better business outcomes.”
Jostle’s intranet platform helps organizations to connect employees, facilitate teamwork, and drive their culture. The startup says it sees three times the industry average in customer engagement (an average across all customers).
