Nerdery, a leading digital consultancy, announced today the addition of Dan Spillane to its leadership team as Chief Revenue Officer. Spillane brings more than 25 years of commercial and professional services experience, most recently serving as IBM’s Director of Growth Initiatives.

As CRO, Spillane will help grow Nerdery’s new and existing clients by building their businesses through digital transformation strategies and by leaning on his skills in growth technology implementation across industries. With his knowledge of services such as hybrid cloud, IoT, AI and more, Spillane will help clients solve key challenges and drive real business results.

“We are eager to add Dan’s enthusiasm and expertise in business and technology consulting to our growing team,” said Adrian Slobin, CEO of Nerdery. “Nerdery is committed to partnering with our clients on their business-critical challenges — for instance, in modernizing their digital platforms, leveraging the cloud, or driving better, more intelligent services through IoT. Dan’s impressive background aligns perfectly with our goals. He’s an ideal complement to our team in pursuing Nerdery’s continued growth.”

Prior to joining Nerdery, Spillane spent the past 20 years with IBM where he consulted in the areas of business, technology and process to achieve outstanding results for clients around the globe. He built teams focused on creating innovative solutions to solve business challenges in a variety of industries, such as financial services, industrial sectors and more. In addition to his professional accomplishments, Spillane currently serves as an adjunct lecturer and member of the Business Advisory Council for the University of Illinois at Chicago.

“My passion lies, ultimately, in solving business problems by applying the latest advances in strategy, design, and technology. I can’t think of an organization that aligns with that mission more than Nerdery,” said Spillane. “The people at Nerdery have an unmatched energy and willingness to do great work for their clients. I look forward to being a part of that culture and helping Nerdery’s clients succeed.”
