Bitterli will oversee the company’s global marketing and communications operations.

“With her background in marketing strategy, brand building and customer insights, we are delighted to welcome Judith to the AVG team.

Her responsibilities will include business intelligence, PR and social media, branding strategy and implementation as well as establishing a voice of the customer.

“Speaking as a marketing person, having the opportunity to work for a rapidly growing brand such as AVG presents a rewarding challenge. This is a business that has come far in recent months and years and which has laid out ambitious goals that span new audiences, products and geographies,” said Bitterli. “AVG’s brand positioning will be central to this undertaking and I am looking forward to being a part of that journey.”
