NovaceneAI welcomes seasoned business development leader

As NovaceneAI enters its growth phase, it is welcoming Pierre Killeen to drive the company’s customer experience business line

A seasoned business development executive in the field of public affairs, Pierre Killeen excels at bringing innovative products and services into industry and government.

For nearly 30 years, Pierre has helped innovators bring new ways of doing things to market. Whether it’s bringing e-learning into the K-12 school system, pioneering digital consultations, driving sales for Canada’s leading market researcher, or helping direct-to-consumer brands navigate complex regulatory environments, he’s a veteran on the front lines of change.

Now, the business leader is turning his attention to AI for text analytics, joining NovaceneAI as its new Business Development Strategist. In this role, Killeen will be tasked with commercializing NovaceneAI technology for the Customer Experience Management market. For Pierre, this means identifying people and companies that can benefit from AI-powered text analytics and helping educate decision-makers about NovaceneAI’s ability to save them time and money and improve their insights into the customer experience.

“As we welcome Pierre to our team, it signals the next chapter for NovaceneAI,” says Marcelo Bursztein, Founder and CEO of NovaceneAI. “Now, we are working with Pierre to mature our product-market fit in this USD $11.5 billion market.”

Helping organizations and leaders embrace the AI revolution

Killeen joins Novacene with decades of experience in strategic communications, market research, government relations and regulatory affairs, with a proven track record in business development. He has served in senior roles at some of Canada’s leading research and communications firms.

“Throughout my career, I have come into contact with the need to help decision-makers cost-effectively generate actionable insights from large amounts of data,” he explains. “I felt there could be a promising business opportunity there for technology. Fast forward a few years and I am helping NovaceneAI, a company at the forefront of this revolution, commercialize its solution to this need.”

Bursztein is confident that Killeen’s expertise will bring great value to Novacene as it builds on its successes.

“We’re entering our fourth year of operation, and we have established ourselves within industries including retail, mining, and cybersecurity – as well as academia,” says Bursztein. “This is an exciting time for our company. We are now embarking on Novacene’s next chapter where Pierre leads, and grows, our customer experience area.”
