Coveo, a leader in AI solutions for intelligent search and experience intelligence, announces today that Nicholas Goode will now serve as Chief Corporate Development Officer to assist with corporate strategy and M&A activities as the company continues its rapid growth and expansion in the market.
“We’re very excited to bring Nicholas on board,” Coveo Chairman and CEO Louis Têtu said. “This move will ensure that Coveo continues to set and execute world-class strategic direction as we expand into new markets and explore new opportunities for experience intelligence across ecommerce, service, the workplace and beyond.”
The Coveo Experience Intelligence Platform uses intelligent search, artificial intelligence, and recommendation technologies to personalize digital experiences. By stitching together content and data from across the enterprise, Coveo clients deliver world class experiences enterprise-wide to customers, channels and their own teams.
Goode will focus on identifying trends in the marketplace, monitoring the competitive landscape for strategic insights and uncovering opportunities for innovation and growth. He will also examine new approaches to markets, as well as perform quantitative analysis around opportunities for line-of-business development, geographic expansion or strategic acquisitions.
Goode commented: “The current market environment is making a number of companies very attractive from an investment point of view. I was fully supportive of backing Coveo as an investor to equip the fastest growing leader in the space with a war chest, and I’m even more excited to join the executive team to help Coveo be a consolidator in the sector.”
Prior to joining Coveo, Goode was a Principal at Evergreen Coast Capital, the Menlo Park-based private equity firm and investor in Coveo. While at Evergreen, Nick helped oversee the firm’s existing investments, and identified, evaluated and executed new acquisition and investment opportunities, including the firm’s prior investments in Coveo.
“It is our firm belief that, beyond digital presence, every company now needs to be an experience intelligence leader – and Coveo is one of the only companies that enables every business to gain the abilities of the tech-first goliaths. Our company’s trajectory has been fueled by tremendous demand for our solution from industry leaders, and Nicholas’ appointment sets us up for our next phase of growth,” Têtu added. “We’re looking forward to welcoming Nicholas to our leadership team.”
