Seasoned Services Executive Judith Platz Appointed Vice President Research, Customer Success and Support for TSIA
Platz to Spearhead TSIA’s Initiatives in Its Recently Expanded Support Services Discipline
TSIA’s research practices, or “service disciplines”—Education Services, Field Services, Managed Services, Professional Services, Service Revenue Generation, and Support Services—are the driving forces of today’s technology services industry.
Platz brings a wealth of technology services experience to TSIA. Most recently, she was senior vice president of the Global Customer Success team for Approva Corporation, where she was responsible for overseeing multiple functional, strategic, organizational development, and technical work streams. In this role, she developed and nurtured a world-class professional services, support, and training culture.
Prior to Approva, she spent seven years at Oracle in a number of critical customer service positions, having led a team that developed and implemented customer confidence programs focused on increasing customer satisfaction and retention for highly complex global accounts. In this role, she was recognized by the Oracle Applications User Group (OAUG) for her sustained efforts advocating on their behalf and educating and communicating with the Oracle user community.
Prior to her tenure at Oracle, Platz held a supervisor role with the International Monetary Fund (IMF). In this post, she supervised support operations across three continents and developed and implemented information technology standards to achieve quality improvements.
“In addition to her 25-plus years as a customer support veteran, Judith brings significant systems integration and operations experience to TSIA,” said Thomas Lah, executive director of TSIA. “Her expansive background in the customer service and support arena affords TSIA members a unique opportunity to grow and evolve their customer support agendas. We’re especially pleased to bring Judith onboard at this time, as we’ve recently expanded the scope of our Support Services discipline to encompass the emerging area of customer success. TSIA members will greatly benefit from Judith’s services leadership expertise.”
