I’ve been in the software business for much of my career, and there has been one constant through all this time: the speed and complexity of the industry continue to rise. The enormous issues we face today – like cybersecurity threats, challenges to intellectual property protection and the need for patent reform – make it essential for us to have strong industry leadership to navigate and advocate on the software industry’s behalf.
Given this need, we’re delighted with the appointment of Victoria Espinel as the new president and CEO of BSA | The Software Alliance. Through her White House experience, Victoria brings a strong ability to bring diverse stakeholders together and work effectively with policymakers in Washington and worldwide. BSA has long been a leading advocate for the software industry, promoting an environment that supports innovation and helps drive the economy and improve quality of life around the world.
