Pole To Win International Appoints Deborah Kirkham to CEO
Pole To Win International, Inc. (PTW) , industry-leading video games and tech services outsourcer, today announced the appointment of Ms. Deborah Kirkham as the company’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) effective January 2019. Previously, Kirkham was President and Chief Operations Officer (COO), a position she held for eight years. In her new role, Kirkham will be responsible for the company’s continued growth, focused on R&D, and customer acquisition and retention.
When Kirkham first joined e4e, later acquired by one of PTW’s subsidiaries, the company operated in three countries with less than 500 employees globally. Under her leadership, PTW, of which she now serves as CEO, has grown to over 1,800 employees across 16 offices in 10 countries around the world. In her role as President and COO, the company celebrated double digit growth year-on-year with 2019 tracking at the same pace. Additionally, in July 2018, Kirkham spearheaded a complete corporate restructure and rebrand designed to foster positive growth, optimize customer relationships, champion PTW’s strong culture of gender equality and diversity worldwide, as well as empower regional sites to be more commercially and operationally autonomous.
“PTW is in my DNA. I love this company like it’s my own and in my new role as CEO, my commitment to delivering for our employees, customers and partners will only grow. The geographical expansion in recent years, most notably in Canada, Asia, India and Europe, has positioned PTW to continue on our path enabling our clients worldwide to bring their story to the world. When PTW gets a seat at the table, we always deliver – that’s what makes this company great,” said Deborah Kirkham, CEO of PTW. “I’m honored that the board of directors recognizes me as the leader who will, with the alignment and focus of my executive team, get it done.”
Kirkham replaces the previous CEO, Mr. Teppei Tachibana, who announced in December 2018 that he would be stepping down from the position after almost nine years as CEO of PTW. Tachibana now becomes Chairman of PTW and maintains his position as President and CEO of Poletowin Pitcrew Holdings, Inc., under which PTW is a subsidiary.
When asked about Kirkham’s appointment to the CEO role, Tachibana said: “Deborah is an invaluable business partner. We have worked together for close to a decade sharing hardships and joys. I respect her passion and wisdom, and I trust that, under her leadership, the company will expand into new world markets while becoming a household name. With a strong track record of delivering positive business growth, Deborah brings a fresh perspective to the company. The board is delighted to appoint Deborah as CEO.”
