Twilio Names Joyce Kim As CMO

Twilio has appointed Joyce Kim as chief marketing officer, the company announced on Monday.  

The company hopes to “scale and embrace the unique opportunity to define a new category in technology,” states Elena Donio, president of revenue, to whom Kim will report.

Previously, Kim was chief marketing officer at Genesys and has also served as chief digital & marketing officer for Arm.

Kim also serves as a member of the board and the audit committee at Quicklogic, the board of the nonprofit Bring Me A Book, and on the Fast Company executive board.

In a separate development, Twilio has closed on a $750 million strategic equity investment in Syniverse, a connectivity platform. Twilio is now a significant minority owner of Syniverse. 

In addition, the companies have expanded their strategic partnership. Carlyle maintains a majority share. 

Syniverse, which powers carriers, Forbes Global 2000 companies and devices, has also raised $1.025 billion in new term loan debt and $340 million in new preferred equity, which was mostly used to reduce leverage.
