NASHUA, N.H. – January 5, 2021 - Akumina, the leading global Employee Experience Platform (EXP) software provider and one of INC Magazine’s Top 200 fastest growing companies in North America, announced today the appointment of former Bottomline Technologies executive Samantha Kenney as Vice President of Global Marketing to spearhead the organization’s overall go-to-market strategy and execution.

“Samantha’s determination, insight, and analytical approach to action is exactly what we need at Akumina to ensure the continued success of our Marketing team and our business as a whole,” said David Maffei, President and Co-Founder of Akumina. “If the intelligence and energy that Samantha has demonstrated in her first weeks are any indication, the coming years will be historic for our company. We couldn’t be more thrilled to have her on board.”

Prior to joining Akumina, Kenney served as Vice President, Digital Marketing & Strategy at Bottomline Technologies, where she developed and executed the global digital roadmap for the organization. As an in-demand speaker on a national scale, Kenney’s expertise in driving business success in the digital space is expected to propel Akumina as they continue their rapid growth.

Kenney expressed her enthusiasm for the work ahead, remarking, “I strongly believe that Akumina is the most robust solution in what is a rapidly growing employee experience software market.

This company will continue to achieve incredible success in the coming years, and I look forward to contributing to it.”
