We’re confident that Pete is the right person to help us achieve that goal.”
Prior to joining Akumina, Karp served as Vice President of Sales and Global Accounts at Iron Mountain, where he played a critical leadership role in scaling the company’s enterprise sales organization, developing a global sales strategy and evolving their transformation towards a digital and integrated solutions provider.

For his part, Karp is also eager to dive into his new role. “It’s always invigorating to accept a new challenge. I have been extremely impressed with Akumina’s dynamic roster of enterprise customers, and the incredible reactions prospective clients have to the technology. The personalized employee experiences and critical system integrations in the Akumina platform provide unique value that is more critical than ever as organizations struggle to optimally manage remote workforces during this difficult and unprecedented period. I believe Akumina is poised for incredible growth, and look forward to leading our team down a path of strategic innovation, productivity, and success.”
