Seasoned Executives Build on the Company’s Acceleration to Address the $19B Workplace and Asset Technology Market
iOffice + SpaceIQ, the global workplace technology company, today announced continued investment in executive leadership with the appointment of Tara Baker as Chief Financial Officer, Meg Swanson as Chief Marketing Officer, Dan DeRosa as Chief Product Officer, Carol Howard as Chief People Officer, and Carla Nichols as Chief Customer Officer. This expansion of the leadership team follows the appointment of CEO Brandon Holden.
