Chaordix Hires New COO, Shuffles Executive Team

Shelley Kuipers, the founder of Chaordix, this week announced three “growth-related developments” in the Chaordix executive team, effective immediately.

The Calgary-born company’s executive shuffle includes moving Jim Gibson, chief operating office of Chaordix since the start of the year, into the role of executive vice president of global markets. And Randy Corke, who has been vice president of business development for Chaordix since 2009, will become senior principal of crowdsourcing advisory services.

Further, the Canadian company has hired Carey Houston, who will succeed Jim as COO. Carey comes to Chaordix with over 15 years of management experience in fast-growing technology companies, primarily in enterprise software. Prior to joining Chaordix, Carey was Vice President of Industry Development at Alberta Enterprise, a limited partner investor in venture capital funds.

“Market adoption of our Chaordix Crowd Intelligence offering has accelerated significantly this year,” explained Shelley. “With this evolution of our team, we’re positioned to expand our business to continue to meet the needs of our growing clientele of innovative brands and organizations.”

Chaordix specializes in crowdsourced market intelligence. The company uses the power of crowdsourcing to help companies and organizations gain actionable insight and competitive advantage.
