Seema Kumar has been hired as Amperity’s new Chief People Office, with Megan McDonagh stepping into the role of Chief Marketing Officer.

Together, the pair bring extensive expertise within their respective industries to support Amperity’s growing leadership team.

“The company is experiencing unprecedented growth, and we are thrilled to welcome both Seema and Megan to the team as we take Amperity and the customer data platform category to the next level,” says Barry Padgett, CEO, Amperity.

“Both have a successful track record for building and scaling organisations to support rapid growth, and equally important, they share in our mission to help people use data to serve the customer. I look forward to working with them as we elevate our brand awareness around the globe, and continue to demonstrate why Amperity is a great place to work.”

Kumar has over 20 years of experience in people operations and human resources.

The new role will see her managing all workplace and people operations such as recruiting, benefits and rewards, organisational and people development, and diversity, equity and inclusion.

In her previous role as Human Resources Vice President at F5 Networks, Kumar led initiatives to attract and develop talent and to shape the culture to transform and grow the business.

“We’re at a unique point in time where we have the ability to impact and embrace how we think about the future of work, and how we create a truly inclusive environment where we can thrive, both personally and professionally,” Kumar says.

“I’ve been truly impressed and energised with the emphasis the executive team places on its people, company values and mission.

“I’m excited to join at this time of growth, and partner with team members of all levels to ensure Amperity continues to be a place where everyone is empowered to do their life’s best work.”

McDonagh is a seasoned marketing executive and is known for her innovation, creativity and ability to speed up growth for industry-leading tech companies.

Previously Chief Marketing Officer at RealWear, McDonagh was also formerly a mainstay at Intel for over 20 years, holding a range of positions in marketing leadership.

“Amperity represents a perfect trifecta with an extremely passionate customer base, differentiated mission-critical technology, and a vibrant culture powered by dedicated employees who love doing what’s right for our customers,” McDonagh says.

“I am incredibly excited about the opportunity at Amperity and the scale the company has achieved to date. I look forward to bringing my experience to Amperity and helping enterprise brands drive exponential impact by realising the full value we can bring to their business.”
