Impartner, a channel management platform provider, has promoted Kerry Desberg to Chief Marketing Officer (CMO). In this role, Desberg will be responsible for leading the strategy, planning and development of Impartner’s global marketing initiatives, continuing to build a worldwide marketing organization that can support the company through its next phase of growth.
Desberg, who was previously Impartner’s global marketing director, brings more than 30 years’ experience across the marketing and communications spectrum to the CMO role. Prior to joining Impartner, Desberg held marketing and communications leadership positions with Fortune 500 corporations and agencies, including Procter and Gamble, Owens Corning, Danaher, Lockheed Martin and Fleishman Hillard.
Desberg,who is widely known in the channel, also serves on The Channel Focus Women’s Leadership Council Advisory Board.
“I’m thrilled to take on the role at this point in the company’s history,” said Desberg. “It’s an incredible opportunity to continue to expand our market share worldwide through breakthrough marketing strategies and our powerful and fast-growing team of world-class marketers.”
Earlier this year, Impartner announced that it received $20 million in growth capital financing from Vector Capital, a global private equity firm specializing in transformational investments in technology businesses. The financing will allow Impartner to further accelerate its growth by increasing sales and marketing expenditure and acquiring complementary technologies.
Desberg replaces Dave R Taylor, who has accepted an unannounced role with another company.
