Geneva, Switzerland – August 26, 2016. Kathy McCarthy has joined CERN spin-off TIND as Vice President of Partnership Development, effective September 1st, 2016. Previously employed at Innovative Interfaces as Business Director for California, McCarthy brings nearly eight years of library automation industry knowledge and customer relationship management experience.

“It’s so exciting to be a part of one of the most advanced products on the library market”, said McCarthy. “Having worked with so many libraries over the years, it’s clear that many are ready for a different type of vendor/customer relationship, one that is deeply collaborative and truly visionary. With TIND, a library can actually be a participant in the process of reimagining how a modern library software platform should perform. TIND’s sleek and elegant architecture is like a breath of fresh air.”
McCarthy will spearhead the partnership expansion efforts for TIND, whose growing list of leading library innovation partners includes Olin College of Engineering, the California Institute of Technology and the University of Minnesota.
