Kerry Sutcliffe | Purple

Kerry Sutcliffe

I have 20+ years of business experience, in digital marketing, travel & tourism, cloud consultancy, business development and alliances.

I have been with for 7 years. Purple is a SaaS business, cloud hosted marketing and analytics technology. The purpose of my role is to evangelize the Purple story in order to leverage scale and growth through partners. As the Director of Partnerships, I am responsible for relationships with Purple’s T1 partners, including service providers, resellers and vendors, including Cisco and BT. Strategic ecosystem partners I look after include, Google Cloud, TripAdvisor and Microsoft.

Before joining Purple, I was a Board Director for a cloud technology consultancy, a Marketing Director for an integrated marketing agency and the Head of e-Commerce for Best Western Hotels.

I have a passion for tech, always have. I routinely give back to the global tech community via public speaking and event creation, plus community work in the form of charity events, speed mentoring and innovation projects.

I’m delighted to mentor many women and men who have worked for me in previous organisations, something I really enjoy. I always have time to help people with a CV/job application or give advice where I can. In this life, you only get what you give!
