Alexandria, VA – July 9th, 2018 –
TransVoyant is pleased to announce Doug Kimball has been named Vice President, Product Marketing. Doug brings an extensive and successful background including full cycle marketing, strategic planning, demand generation, new product launches and product management. He most recently worked at JDA Software Inc. and resides in Bloomington, IL. With over 20+ years’ experience across supply chain and consumer goods industries, he is looking forward to bringing new perspectives and energy to sales enablement and market growth for TransVoyant.
Doug will report to David Panitz, Executive Vice President Customer Growth in the Product Marketing/Pre-Sales department. He will be responsible for leading product marketing strategy, execution, product positioning, collateral development, market awareness and sales enablement. This is a global leadership role with responsibility to recognize and adapt strategies and evangelize messages for different regions and market verticals. Doug will immediately impact TransVoyant and its customers by focusing on the “what”, “so what” and “then what” from the customer’s point of view.
While Doug is based in Illinois, he will regularly be at both TransVoyant offices in Minnesota and Virginia, and also at client sites with David and the sales team. When he isn’t running from plane to plane, he enjoys spending time with his wife and occasionally seeing his college aged twins, as well as teaching and training in his hobby of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
TransVoyant is at the forefront of the supply chain predictive analytics space.
