Artico Search Recruits Chief Marketing Officer for BigPanda

May 19, 2023 – As organizations becomes more complex and power shifts from producers of goods and services to consumers, the chief marketing officer’s job of planning and coordinating marketing activities has become more challenging — and much more influential. Mercedes Chatfield-Taylor of Artico Search recently assisted in the recruitment of Sun Lee as the new chief marketing officer of BigPanda, Inc., a San Francisco-based provider of incident intelligence and automation powered by AIOps.

“Sun’s experience executing innovative marketing plans across technology companies of varying sizes combined with her fresh perspective has the entire company extremely excited,” said Assaf Resnick, CEO. “Her creativity and astute grasp of what drives successful marketing programs are exactly what we need to bring BigPanda to the next level. She’s also an excellent fit with the culture we have built, and I can’t wait to see her work her marketing magic first-hand.”

Ms. Lee was most recently chief marketing officer at the decision intelligence company Sisu, where she built a marketing team and helped the business reimagine its branding and messaging. Before that, she was vice president of global campaign, partner and digital marketing at Pure Storage, the publicly traded data storage hardware and software company. Previously, Ms. Lee spent more than four years at SurveyMonkey, ultimately rising to vice president of marketing and leading the company’s rebrand and successful IPO in 2018. She also has extensive design experience, including roles as creative director at Citrix, art director at Silverlign Group and branding consultant at MadeinSUN. Earlier in her career, she held positions at Gwen Francis Design Group, CreativeLift, and Celerity. She also currently serves as an advisor to Gyaan.

In her new position, Ms. Lee will lead BigPanda’s marketing efforts as the company builds on its growth trajectory. “Joining a company that helps solve an existing and widespread pain in the marketplace was particularly attractive to me, as was the fact that the market has plenty of opportunities for future growth,” Ms. Lee said. “The other main reason I joined was the people — decision-making can be difficult for startups and growth-stage businesses because of the number of changes they experience, so it’s important to learn how to execute as a team. In that vein, BigPanda’s clear desire to iterate together as a team was very refreshing.”
