MENLO PARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Globality announced today the election to its Board of Directors of leading industry executive Debra Polishook. Ms. Polishook’s deep procurement expertise complements Globality’s current Board, accelerating the company’s growth as the leading AI-powered Platform for the global sourcing and procurement of services.
Polishook brings an impressive 35 years of experience from her career at Accenture. Most recently she headed one of the company’s major services as Group Chief Executive of Accenture Operations, which includes its procurement outsourcing business. In fiscal 2019, the division she led generated $6 billion in revenue operating in 120 countries through more than 50 Intelligent Operations centers.
“I’m truly excited about joining Globality’s Board with the opportunity to impact the future of global enterprise operations.
