UserZoom, the leader in Experience Insights Management (XIM), today announced that Laurie Schultz has joined its Board of Directors. Schultz brings over three decades of business development experience to the company, having a proven track record of delivering technology solutions to the market.
She most recently served as Director and CEO of Galvanize, a leading provider of cloud-based security, risk management, compliance and audit software, and became the first Canadian female CEO to lead a technology company to unicorn status, after the company was sold to Diligent in April 2021.
“We’re thrilled that Laurie is bringing her talents and wealth of experience to our board of directors,” said Alfonso de la Nuez, Co-CEO and Co-Founder, UserZoom. “Laurie’s impressive track record in bringing enterprise software solutions to market and beyond is a tremendous asset to our board, and we look forward to working together as we continue to expand UserZoom’s presence in the market, as well as XIM’s emergence as its own solution category.”
“I’m very excited to join the team at UserZoom,” said Schultz. “In today’s digital experience economy, providing best-in-class experiences is a must, and successful businesses remain competitive by measuring and improving their digital experience through actionable insights. Not only is UserZoom at the forefront of this movement, but the company’s people-centric and transparent culture also aligns very closely with my values.”
Under her leadership, Galvanize raised over $100M in debt and equity, securing the company’s position as a market leader across all major analyst reports and one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers (2018-2021), Most Admired Cultures (2018-2020) and Best Managed Companies (2019-2021).
