Veteran Leaders Position Kofax for Continued Innovation and Growth
Irvine, CA, Aug. 15, 2018 – Kofax®, a leading supplier of software to automate and digitally transform information intensive processes, today announced the addition of Kathleen Delaney and Chris Huff to the company’s executive management team. Delaney will serve as Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) and Huff assumes the newly created role of Chief Strategy Officer (CSO), with both reporting to Reynolds C. Bish, Kofax’s CEO.
“With Kathleen’s and Chris’ expertise on our executive management team, Kofax will be able to sharpen our focus on the RPA and process automation markets we serve,” said Bish. “They both bring tremendous experience and expertise that will drive a more agile customer focus.”
Delaney is an accomplished executive with relevant experience driving across branding initiatives, corporate communications, demand generation, product marketing and digital marketing functions. Prior to joining Kofax, Delaney served as CMO at HireRight, a global provider of employment background checks. She was previously CMO for Vistage Worldwide, a global membership organization serving business leaders. In both of these roles she successfully transformed and significantly improved the companies’ customer engagement and marketing strategy. Delaney has also held executive level marketing roles at Aon Risk Solutions and Dow Jones and Company.
"Kofax has a rich portfolio of software products and solutions to automate and digitally transform human and information intensive processes while dramatically improving customer engagement and increasing competitiveness, growth and profitability," said Delaney. “I look forward to optimizing its marketing initiatives to deliver even more value for our customers.”
Huff was most recently the leader of Deloitte Consulting’s U.S. Public Sector Robotics and Intelligent Automation business, where he was instrumental in starting and growing that practice as the robotic process automation (RPA) market emerged and experienced exponential growth. As such, he is uniquely qualified to drive value for customers with Kofax’s RPA software and ensure better alignment and execution across all functional areas. A thought-leader and recognized expert in the field, Huff previously spent two decades in senior financial management roles at several federal government agencies.
“I’m excited to join Kofax at this point in the rapidly evolving RPA market. The company’s broad portfolio of intellectual property will provide us with significant competitive differentiation and advantage as organizations begin to recognize the need for more comprehensive solutions incorporating RPA, information capture, process automation and other capabilities,” commented Huff. “With Kofax’s history of market leadership, the company provides a solid foundation to expand and provide even greater value for its customers.”
