Palmer’s extensive experience spans public and private global organizations, where she has seamlessly blended her signature customer-centric approach with strategic, creative thinking and data insights to generate compelling results.

At Avid Technology, she oversaw the company’s largest marketing campaigns, PR initiatives, and partner marketing programs across all key markets.
