Sales and marketing veteran Brian Coyle started this October 2015 as KantanMT’s new Chief Commercial Officer.
KantanMT exclusively informed Slator that Coyle leads the sales and marketing teams and is also responsible for hiring more people into the teams. He will also lead the continual roll out of the KantanMT Platform, but will not be involved in product development. Coyle reports directly to the Board of Directors.
Coyle brings over 25 years of experience in sales and marketing to the Ireland-based machine translation (MT) software provider. Coyle ran his own consultancy Coyle & Co. Management Consultants for the past 18 years, directing business strategy, management and development, and marketing and sales. Prior to this, he has played senior management roles in the sales and marketing departments of companies like cloud accounting service provider accountsIQ and document management service provider Kefron, among others.
Coyle’s appointment is the second major people move of KantanMT in the past couple of months. Just this September 2015, the company also welcomed marketing veteran Brian Baird to their Board of Directors. The company has also been actively hiring staffers, having recently added four members to its team focusing on MT project coordination, MT development, and content and software development. As of September 2015, the company is still trying to fill three more open positions, according to its LinkedIn page.
