Acolad is strengthening its US leadership team to accelerate its ambitious growth strategy in North America. The group recently announced three key changes to senior leadership roles: Gráinne Maycock steps into the role of General Manager and SVP, with Bethany Lang becoming Senior Production Director and Paul Barlow joining as Director of Enterprise Growth.
With this reorganization, the European leader plans to expand its footprint in North America, already backed by a long history of success in the Life Sciences sector plus a steady and remarkable YoY growth and an enviable portfolio of renowned customers.
Language industry veteran Gráinne Maycock has been a key element of the Acolad group for the past nine years. After driving business development for Ireland and the US under Amplexor, she transitioned to a leadership role building the go-to-market strategy and sales execution for North America at Acolad, after the two Language Services industry giants joined forces back in 2020.
Now, Maycock becomes General Manager and SVP for North America and Ireland, roles that she has naturally grown into. With over two decades of industry experience in both production and sales leadership with some of the largest players in our industry, her knowledge of the Acolad group and her passion for teamwork and cross-functional collaboration are a major plus to drive Acolad’s growth and vision for North America.
“It’s definitely an honor being chosen to lead this incredibly talented team of go-getters,” says Gráinne Maycock. “Giving credit where it’s due and rewarding hard work has always been recognized as the Acolad way, so it feels truly amazing to be entrusted with this mission of accelerating our growth journey in these geographies.”
