Lakeside Software, a leader in cloud-based digital experience management (DEM), has appointed David Keil to the role of Chief Executive Officer.
Keil’s track record as a leader of growth-stage enterprise matches Lakeside’s profile as one of the leading companies in the rapidly expanding DEX space.
Lakeside offers unique solutions for a new generation of employee satisfaction and technological advancement. The pandemic revealed many gaps in company IT systems with the sudden transition to at-home work. Employees were left in the lurch, forced to troubleshoot issues previously handled by entire IT departments.
Through comprehensive IT monitoring, Lakeside can predict and troubleshoot tech issues before they even occur, giving employees the opportunity to focus on their jobs. Their cloud-based digital experience management gathers and analyzes everything that could impact the user and gives an unmatched level of visibility. This level of monitoring is necessary for a digital workforce and helps increase productivity over time. Proactive IT operations such as this will help companies excel in today’s predominantly remote and hybrid work environments.
“I am joining Lakeside Software at the optimal moment for the company and the market,” Keil said in a press release. “Our products are recognized as best-in-class by leading analysts, our investors have one of the strongest technology portfolios around, and the demand for digital experience management solutions is exploding. I anticipate a significant growth phase ahead and could not be more energized to lead the Lakeside team forward.”
Before joining Lakeside, Keil worked as Chief Operating Officer and board member at Tricentis, a software testing solutions company, where he was responsible for global sales, business operations, and post-sales functions. At Tricentis, he led a team of over 700 employees and grew the business from $65M to over $200M.
Over the past several months, Lakeside has announced a number of major enhancements to its product suite including the expansion of its Digital Experience Cloud, the release of its Executive Insights and its interactive dashboards, as well as geographic expansion within the United Arab Emirates and France.
