HCL is at a critical point in its journey, says new CMO
HCL Technologies has appointed Jill Kouri as Chief Marketing Officer to help companies reimagine their business for the digital age.
A top marketing executive with nearly 30 years of corporate and agency B2B services experience, Kouri will lead the company’s global marketing programs.
“As HCL continues to drive its strategy to be the digital partner of choice for global enterprises and reinforce its industry-leading ESG practices, it is imperative to strengthen our marketing leadership,” C Vijayakumar, CEO and Managing Director, HCL Technologies, said of the new appointment on 28 July 2021.
“Jill brings rich experience in areas from purpose articulation and global brand building to demand generation and sales enablement, and we are thrilled to welcome her to our leadership team.”
Kouri joins HCL Technologies most recently from JLL (NYSE: JLL), where she was Chief Marketing Officer, Americas, for seven years. Prior to that, she spent 14 years in increasingly senior marketing leadership roles at Accenture.
“While I was familiar with HCL Technologies at a high level, I was completely in awe of the organization’s rich history, culture and focus on innovation and entrepreneurial mindset,” Kouri said. “HCL is at a critical point in its journey, having reached the US$10 billion revenue mark, and I am excited to lead the efforts to create more widespread brand awareness and affinity, all while driving a very strong growth agenda.”
Kouri is a very strong advocate and driver for purpose and D&I initiatives. She is a board member with FGM Architects, and is involved in several non-profit initiatives including Dress for Success, where she is part of the Midwest Advisory Council.
