She was previously with Accenture, where she held the role of Marketing & Communication Lead for its North America technology group and prior as Global Brand Positioning and Agency Management Lead.

"Over the past 10 years LGIMA has experienced significant growth, and these professionals have been brought on as part of our on-going strategic efforts to further support expansion," said Robert Moore, CEO of LGIMA, in a statement.
