Icertis names Deanna Lanier as chief strategy officer

Contract intelligence company Icertis has named Deanna Lanier as chief strategy officer. 

She will be reporting to Icertis chairman and CEO Samir Bodas.

In this newly created role, Lanier will focus on extending Icertis’ lead in contract intelligence, helping the company expand its operations, extend its footprint, and accelerate customer outcomes by enabling them to realise the full intent of their commercial agreements.

"Having cemented its position as the de facto contract management platform for the enterprise, Lanier will help Icertis expand into new geographies, customer types, and industry verticals. She will also help Icertis extend its footprint across the enterprise for customers, connecting contract data to ERP, SCM, CRM, and HCM systems for deep insights and automated processes,” the company said in a statement on Tuesday.

Lanier comes to Icertis from Infor, a provider of industry-specific cloud software, where she was most recently senior vice president of strategy, growth, and partnerships.  Prior to Infor, Lanier held leadership roles at Adobe, McKinsey, Microsoft, and KMPG. 

“Deanna brings a unique combination of skills to help accelerate our growth at Icertis, including deep expertise in enterprise software sales, industry verticalisation, business development, and alliances and partnerships – she also exemplifies our FORTE values, the backbone of Icertis’ corporate culture,” said Bodas.

“With a highly differentiated platform, strong momentum, and an amazing culture built on its FORTE values, it is an exciting time to join Icertis. Immense value can be unlocked by digitally transforming the way enterprises use contracts. Contracts sit at the heart of almost all business processes with unique and critcially important sources of data that can create business imapct. Icertis’ intelligent platform enables our customers to do just that,” added Lanier, who will be based at Icertis headquarters in Bellevue, Washington.

The AI-powered, analyst-validated Icertis Contract Intelligence (ICI) platform turns contracts from static documents into strategic advantage by structuring and connecting the critical contract information that defines how an organisation runs.
