Joanna joins Kira Systems with over 25 years in the legal industry including spearheading sales transformation at LexisNexis and scaling Practical Law (acquired by Thomson Reuters in 2014). In 2014, Joanna took on the role of Vice President (Corporate Sales) where she oversaw the teams working with in-house lawyers and successfully led 5 years of double digit growth while executing on major sales force transformation projects. As the first CRO of Kira Systems, Joanna will primarily focus on driving new revenue opportunities, implementing strategic initiatives and ensuring customer success.

“Joanna has a stellar track record leading sales teams in legal and corporate markets; a horde of people we respect told us superlatively great things about her.” said Noah Waisberg, CEO and Co-Founder of Kira Systems. “I look forward to learning so much from Joanna and our other highly experienced leaders as we accelerate Kira into its next era of our growth.”

Maria Cartagena, Senior Vice President People, is another recent addition and joined Kira Systems last year with over 20 years of technology HR experience (i.e Nulogy, ScribbleLive, IntelliResponse a 24/7 company). Rounding out the rest of the executive team is Noah Waisberg, Co-Founder and CEO, Dr. Alexander Hudek, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Steve Obsenski, Chief Product Officer, Susan Fox, CFO/COO, and Michael Raw, Senior Vice President Technology.

“After first meeting Noah and Alex, and understanding the amazing technology and company they have built, I was convinced that I wanted to join the team to capture this amazing opportunity,” said Joanna Trimble. “I am looking forward to working closely with the executive team as we continue to expand our customer base towards ubiquitous use in professional services firms and increasingly into mainstream corporations, scaling the impact that Kira can have on how people work”
