LaMirand is an accomplished leader with a strong portfolio of successes in leading the start-up, growth and optimization of a number of digital and high-tech businesses. He has delivered innovative solutions in multiple markets and geographies, having built global data systems, data and operations centers, created data products, developed SaaS offerings, grown partner ecosystems and created/delivered consulting services. Prior to joining PrizeLogic in early 2018, Ryan was Vice President of Global Partner Development for Acxiom.
