Hudson, WI, August 1 2022 – Acolad is strengthening its US leadership team to accelerate its ambitious
growth strategy in North America. The group recently announced three key changes to senior
leadership roles: Gráinne Maycock steps into the role of General Manager and SVP, with Bethany Lang
becoming Senior Production Director and Paul Barlow joining as Director of Enterprise Growth.
With this reorganization, the European leader plans to expand its footprint in North America, already
backed by a long history of success in the Life Sciences sector plus a steady and remarkable YoY growth
and an enviable portfolio of renowned customers.
Language industry-veteran Gráinne Maycock has been a key element of the Acolad group for the past
nine years. After driving business development for Ireland and the US under Amplexor, she transitioned
to a leadership role building the GoToMarket Strategy and Sales execution for North America at Acolad,
after the two Language Services industry giants joined forces back in 2020. Now, Maycock becomes
General Manager and SVP for North America and Ireland, roles that she has naturally grown into. With
over two decades of industry experience in both production and sales leadership with some of the
largest players in our industry, her knowledge of the Acolad group and her passion for teamwork and
cross-functional collaboration are a major plus to drive Acolad’s growth and vision for North America.
“It’s definitely an honor being chosen to lead this incredibly talented team of go-getters,” says Gráinne
Maycock. “Giving credit where it’s due and rewarding hard work has always been recognized as the
Acolad way, so it feels truly amazing to be entrusted with this mission of accelerating our growth journey
in these geographies.”
