Lionbridge Announces Appointment Of Former Digitas Executive As SVP And General Manager

WALTHAM, Mass., Sept. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lionbridge (Nasdaq: LIOX), a leading provider of globalization solutions, today announced that Richard Tobin has joined Lionbridge as Senior Vice President and General Manager.  As a seasoned operations leader, Tobin will be responsible for leading the delivery of Lionbridge's market-leading language services business and rapidly-growing global marketing operations offerings.  

Tobin brings more than 15 years of experience in managing, operating and growing successful digital marketing and services companies.  Most recently he was SVP of Operations for DigitasLBi, a global marketing and technology agency and member of the Publicis Groupe. At DigitasLBi, Tobin held several roles in operations and finance and was responsible for driving profitable growth across the Company's operations in North America and offshore centers in South America and Asia.  Most recently he was appointed to lead Digitas' North America Operations with more than 2,500 employees representing approximately $500 million in revenue across all lines of the Company's business.

"Rich brings to Lionbridge a unique combination of global operations leadership, strong financial operations and business development expertise which will enable us to maximize growth and profitability of our business," said Rory Cowan, CEO of Lionbridge.  "This expertise, combined with his knowledge of marketing services, will prove valuable as we meet growing demand for integrated globalization solutions that ensure global brand consistency and local relevancy throughout our clients' global content lifecycle." 

Prior to Digitas, Tobin held leadership roles in operations, project management and international finance at Reed Business Information, a global data, publishing and marketing company and Converse, a global shoe and apparel company.  He started his career at State Street and Brown Brothers Harriman. 

"With a powerful crowd-in-the-cloud delivery model, long-standing client relationships with global brands and a clear leadership position in the globalization services market, Lionbridge is uniquely positioned to capitalize on the growing demand for integrated solutions that combine services and technology to drive results," said Tobin.  "I look forward to taking Lionbridge's operations to the next level to provide new value for Lionbridge clients worldwide."
