Phrasee, the leading innovator in brand language optimization, announced its accelerated momentum as it assembles a powerhouse executive team and builds on its AI-powered content platform to drive customer engagement and business results ever further. These strategic moves come on the heels of the recent appointment of Dan Head as CEO, who is already making significant waves to shape the company’s market positioning and future vision.
“Brands need to know how to embrace generative AI and related technologies to future-proof their businesses for competitive advantage,” said Head. “The market requires it; the era we live in requires it. We’re assembling a team of the best individuals to lead product development and go-to-market strategies. These individuals come from backgrounds that cover the leading technology in this space, from Salesforce and Braze to Phrasee and Accenture. We’ve got decades of collective experience in the most advanced marketing technology.”
Strengthening the C-Suite
Phrasee’s leadership team will play pivotal roles in shaping the company’s future:
- Jasper Pye, who has been with Phrasee since its launch eight years ago, steps into the role of Chief Technology Officer (CTO), bringing a wealth of experience in technology and AI solutions.
- Toby Coulthard, who joins as Chief Product Officer (CPO), was previously a Senior Area VP, Solutions Consulting at Braze, a leading customer engagement platform.
- Patrick Forquer, also previously at Braze as an Area VP, takes on the role of Chief Revenue Officer (CRO), leading the charge in expanding Phrasee’s market presence and growth.
“These new appointments are a demonstrable step of Phrasee’s ramp-up in the current AI landscape,” said Head. “We are leaning in, investing in talent, and attracting talent from other major players. The market Phrasee operates in is enormous, and its time is now. We are in an advantageous position relative to other alternatives in this space and an attractive proposition for people who want to take the next move in their careers. Phrasee will have significantly more horsepower at precisely the right time.”
“Throughout late 2022 and 2023, the surge in generative AI has ushered in a wave of new AI tools. While many are just dipping their toes into this evolution, Phrasee stands in a prime position with our technology and enterprise workflows to deliver real value to brands,” said Pye. “Over the past eight years, our collaboration with forward-thinking customers has yielded invaluable insights, enabling us to continuously refine our technology and develop a highly targeted marketing content solution. I am excited to take on the role of CTO, working alongside Dan, Toby, and Patrick to take our initiatives to the next level and assist marketers as they navigate this transformative period.”
“Enterprise marketers are beginning to understand the inherent limitations of using today’s large language models (LLMs) concerning trust, scale, and performance for marketing engagement,” said Coulthard. “Phrasee leverages the right technologies that are fit-for-purpose for driving engagement. It’s an exciting time to be in generative AI, and Phrasee has been—and will continue to be—the tip of the spear as it applies to generative AI for marketers. That’s why I’m excited to be joining Phrasee.”
“In my experience working with data, CRM, and marketing teams from some of the world’s largest brands, I know that large enterprises are always looking for an edge as to how they can more effectively deliver highly performant digital content at scale on any channel, but with the right level of enterprise controls,” said Forquer. “That’s what Phrasee does, and I’m thrilled to join Dan and the rest of the incredible Phrasee team as we continue this journey together.”
