NorthOut, Inc., a leading Artificial Intelligence (AI) and emerging technology experiences firm, has named Eric Healy as its Chief Executive Officer. Healy brings two decades of experience working on leading consumer brands at worldwide advertising, marketing and technology organizations.
Healy joins from MyWebGrocer (MWG), a Palo Alto private equity backed, retail software and services company catering to the enterprise needs of multi-billion dollar, independent grocers and CPG brands who seek to advertise across MWG powered, digital ecosystems, where he served as President and Board Member.
Healy’s prior experience includes having served CEO of Publicis Groupe-owned, Rosetta, where he was charged with accelerating Rosetta’s position as a leading customer engagement agency; Vice President, Business Lead at Sapient Corporation; EVP, Corporate Development at Aegis Media North America; SVP, Director of Interactive at IPG-owned Mullen; and Vice President, Strategy Group at Digitas, where he ran the agency’s Retail practice. Earlier in his career, Healy also held client side roles at The Rockport Company and its parent, Reebok International Ltd. serving as Director of Interactive and Director of Global eCommerce, respectively.
“Eric is a proven, multi-disciplinary executive with a track record in driving aggressive business growth, forging C-level relationships, codifying next generation technology solutions and positioning organizations for future success,” said Monesh Jain, NorthOut founder and executive chairman. “We’re excited to capitalize on Eric’s passion and deep industry expertise as our customers increasingly turn to the use of artificial intelligence and emerging technology experiences to compete and win during a time of widespread industry disruption.”
In his role as CEO, Healy will share responsibility for articulating and implementing NorthOut’s strategic vision as well as overseeing key functional aspects of the organization including business development, partnership development and the marketing of the NorthOut brand. Healy is intimately familiar with the challenges that NorthOut customers face in creating highly relevant experiences with end consumers, while demonstrating business value through the increased use of artificial intelligence and cognitive solutions.
“NorthOut was created on the premise that then-contrarian artificial intelligence and cognitive technologies would be more transformative than the Internet itself. In today’s age of unprecedented technology acceleration, the ability to maintain competitive advantage requires new strategies and an unbridled focus on next generation technologies and related innovation” said Healy. “Given NorthOut’s unique blend of strategy, modern experience design and cognitive computing skills, we are well positioned to enable our customers to successfully embrace new technologies, provide new business efficiencies and simultaneously monetize every interaction with tomorrow’s consumers.”
