News Image
Avid® has appointed Wellford Dillard as the organisation's next Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

Wellford succeeds Jeff Rosica, who is staying with the company in an advisory capacity to ensure a smooth and successful transition.

Wellford joins Avid after serving as the CEO of Marigold, a leading provider of omni-channel marketing SaaS solutions, used by businesses to manage and deepen customer engagement. Wellford has more than 20 years of experience in the software industry and, prior to Marigold, held CFO roles at vertical software leaders such as Opower and GetWellNetwork, among others.

"We are thrilled to appoint Wellford as the new CEO of Avid," said William Chisholm, Managing Partner, and Patrick Fouhy, Principal, of STG. "He has an exceptional background leading software businesses and brings a wealth of valuable experience to Avid. His strong track record driving growth will be invaluable during this next phase of the company’s journey. In addition, we want to express our sincere gratitude to Jeff for his leadership and contributions to the company during his tenure as CEO and for his commitment in helping to ensure a successful transition prior to his retirement."

"I am privileged to join such a terrific team and significant technology leader in the Media & Entertainment industry. It is a critical time for the industry, as well as an important time for Avid, and I am excited to be leading this iconic organisation," said Wellford Dillard. "The company’s continued focus on innovative technology that can help its preeminent customer base deliver on their creative and business objectives will remain at the centre of Avid’s focus as we deliver on the company’s strategic goals and next phase of growth."
