In this newly created role, Ms. Griffin Smith will focus on the needs of customers and partners in the ever-changing digital world, ensuring that Acquia solutions deliver exceptional value today and in the future and that all programs and communications are addressing the unique needs of customers.

“Organizations today need to think and act differently as their customers' preferences, as well as technology and regulatory requirements, continue to change,” said Jennifer Griffin Smith, CMO at Acquia. “A brand’s digital experience across all channels is critical to consistently engaging those customers, employees, and citizens. I am thrilled to join a powerhouse team that understands the value of content, data, and personalized experiences for brands — at a time when capturing the customer’s attention and making every interaction matter are critical.”
