WEST NEW YORK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Incisiv, an executive network for digital leaders that offers benchmarking, research and analytics to its members, today announced David Weinand will join its leadership team as chief customer officer. Weinand has spent close to 20 years developing high-value B2B research and community offerings for the consumer industries of retail, restaurant, lodging and consumer products.
Prior to Incisiv, Weinand was a key leader in launching and managing specialized industry research units EKN and Retail Systems Alert Group, scaling and operating engaged executive communities at media properties RIS News, Consumer Goods Technology and HT Magazine, and building innovative learning opportunities for digital leaders at ConnectVentures.
In his role as chief customer officer, Weinand will be responsible for further increasing Incisiv’s focus on delivering outsized value to its clients across the consumer industries of retail, restaurants, lodging and consumer products. He will also lead the team in accelerating the adoption of Incisiv’s benchmarking, community and research offering for technology firms that support these industries, and expanding membership of Incisiv’s Digital Executive Council, “The Speakeasy.”
The partnership represents a re-pairing of the team that created and grew EKN Research prior to its acquisition by a private equity firm in 2016. In addition to Weinand, Incisiv’s management team includes chief insights officer, Gaurav Pant; chief strategy officer, Giri Agarwal; and chief operations officer, Amarjot Mokha.
“Having the opportunity to join Incisiv to work with Giri, Gaurav and the rest of the team to redefine what it means to be an industry insights firm at such an inflection point for consumer industries is extremely exciting,” said Weinand. “Creating a highly engaged executive network where members can go deeper into the issues that matter most to them by flexibly utilizing benchmarking, research, and analytics capabilities is an immensely valuable vision.”
“As we continue to invest aggressively in capability building, the addition of Dave to our leadership team will fuel growth in all the right areas – membership, revenue and strategic solution development,” said Pant.
Incisiv offers consumer industry executives responsible for digital transformation a trusted platform to share and learn in a non-competitive setting, and the tools necessary to improve digital maturity, impact and profitability. For more information on Incisiv, please visit incisiv.io.
