Televerde, the demand generation and sales acceleration solutions provider, unveiled Morag Lucey as the company’s new CEO. Lucey succeeds Jim Hooker, who has led Televerde as its CEO since 1996 and will be retiring, according to the company.
As the company’s first female CEO, Lucey is tasked with overseeing all of Televerde’s operations while also continuing to strengthen its commitment to working with disempowered groups — specifically incarcerated women in the United States. Lucey has roughly 25 years of marketing leadership experience, holding executive- and senior-level positions at companies such as BAE Systems, Convergys and SAP. Most recently, Lucey was the CMO of the unified communications and cloud business solutions provider Avaya, where she was a Televerde customer.
“Televerde has made its mark as a valued strategic partner for its clients while providing training and career opportunities for incarcerated women,” Lucey said in a statement. “During my tenure, we will grow our client base and support them by expanding our business model to provide opportunities for other disempowered communities. I believe in and am truly inspired by Televerde’s approach to business and will focus on helping other businesses, whether clients or peers, embrace our socially responsible approach.”
