Jonckers, a leading global AI-powered language services provider, announced the appointment of Devin Lynch to the newly appointed role of Chief Growth Officer, effective on 15 January 2024.
Devin brings over 30 years of sales and marketing experience in the technology sector, in which he has delivered some of the most innovative and recognizable campaigns in the industry. He has spent the past 5+ years in pivotal roles as Vice President, Customer Success and Head of Global Sales & Marketing at Welocalize, a global translation and localization business. Previously, he was President and CEO of Trancos Inc, and Transware and held senior positions at Skillsoft (formally Smartforce). Devin began his career as Vice President of Sales at Personal Training Systems Incorporated.
Jonckers’ appointment of Devin comes as the company continues its strategic geographic expansion coupled with investment in cutting-edge translation technology, including their proprietary AI-driven platform, WordsOnline, under CEO Silke Zschweigert’s leadership. As Chief Growth Officer, Devin will be responsible for leading Jonckers’ sales, account management, and marketing efforts in both existing and new markets.
“Devin is a hands-on, results-driven leader with great experience in marketing and sales at both technology and translation businesses,” said Silke Zschweigert, CEO of Jonckers. “He joins Jonckers at an exciting time as we accelerate our investment in technology and continue to disrupt and shape the language industry. I’d like to extend a warm welcome to Devin from all of us on the Jonckers team and look forward to our work together.”

As part of Jonckers’ strategic growth plans, the company is also strengthening its account management team. Peter Coleman will join the company as Account Director, coming from Argos Multilingual.
