Mindjet adds to visual collaboration leadership team with new Vice President of Marketing

  • 09 July, 2009 14:34

<p>Sydney – July 9, 2009 — Mindjet®, the leading provider of personal productivity and collaboration solutions that visually connect ideas, information and people, today announced the hire of Kate Milner as vice president, worldwide marketing. Joining Mindjet from Cisco WebEx, Milner comes on board at a time when Mindjet’s on-demand visual collaboration solutions are changing the definition of what it means to collaborate online.</p>
<p>Milner brings extensive experience in the collaboration and productivity space having worked at WebEx (acquired by Cisco) for several years. She will drive awareness for Mindjet as a collaboration and productivity company that is leading the movement beyond traditional collaboration offerings, such as Web conferencing and instant messaging, to environments based on a visual approach that are changing the way people manage information, work in teams and drive innovation.</p>
<p>Her tenure at Mindjet begins just on the heels of the recent hiring of Greg Brown, Mindjet vice president, Americas, who was also formerly with Cisco WebEx, and most recently served there as head of sales &amp; alliances in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA).</p>
<p>“Collaboration is much more than getting people in the same Web conference and taking static notes,” said Milner. “It’s about what you do in that session and the methods people use to work outside of the meeting that defines how and if people are truly collaborating. Collaboration does not just happen in the confines of a meeting - the meeting is just the starting point. Mindjet built its business on understanding that difference - that the way we visualise and relate to information can have a huge impact on how we work individually and in groups. It is this difference that is changing how we work today, and I’m delighted to join Mindjet’s team to be a part of the visual collaboration movement.”</p>
<p>In her role at Mindjet, Milner will be responsible for leading the company’s marketing efforts around the globe. She brings 15 years of marketing experience, and most recently served as director of marketing, Europe for Cisco’s WebEx Technology Group. Prior to Cisco’s acquisition of WebEx, Milner was director of marketing, EMEA for WebEx Communications, where she was responsible for marketing programs, market growth and market penetration across the region. In three years at WebEx, she more than doubled the market growth in Europe and made it the fastest growing region in the company. Milner was also previously co-owner of Liquid Marketing, an integrated marketing agency, where she built a practice spearheading marketing strategy, online and offline advertising and brand positioning for global companies.</p>
<p>“Kate’s expertise in driving brand recognition and demand will significantly help us to build leadership in the industry,” said Scott Raskin, CEO, Mindjet. “Her knowledge of the collaboration and productivity space will help us reach a broader market and spread the word for what Mindjet stands for - visually working with information to better drive sales processes, manage projects, collaborate with others, or simply get things done.”</p>
