Marketer and digital specialist Andy Lark has joined the board of Kiwi cloud search software specialist SLI Systems.
Lark says he's joining the business at a time when it has technology leadership and momentum in the market. “SLI is exceptionally well positioned to take advantage of the swing to e-commerce as customers’ preferred channel for shopping. I've seen the power of SLI in accelerating e-commerce through improvements in search, traffic and analytics."
Lark runs Group Lark, working on digital and social media for brands. He was most recently the chief marketing and online officer at Commonwealth Bank of Australia.
The Kiwi is also the former vice president and general manager of large enterprise marketing and online at Dell and has led marketing teams at LogLogic, Sun Microsystems and Nortel Networks.
SLI Systems was established in 2001 and listed on the NZX this year.
SLI co-founder and CEO Shaun Ryan says Lark has played a key role in defining the company's marketing strategy for the coming year.
