Cision has appointed Abel Clark chief executive officer, effective immediately. He takes over from Platinum Equity managing director Brandon Crawley, who was acting as interim CEO. Platinum acquired Cision in January.
Clark was most recently CEO and Chairman of TruSight, a start-up that was established to transform third-party risk management. He was previously global managing director of Thomson Reuter's financial division.
“Since Platinum Equity’s acquisition of Cision, our focus has been on unlocking the value potential of the business,” said Crawley. “We are excited for Abel to help push this vision forward and confident that his customer-oriented approach and his extensive background in driving successful global growth strategies will be invaluable.”
