MONTREAL, July 7, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - EquiSoft, a leader in the design and development of digital business solutions for the media industry, is proud to announce the appointment of Ms. Brinda Luckoo as Executive Vice President, Media Services.
Ms. Luckoo is an innovative, results-driven marketing and business development executive.

"Joining the EquiSoft team is very exciting", said Ms. Luckoo. "EquiSoft's PublisherElements is the only audience management system of its kind in the Canadian market, with its full set of tools for both B2B and Consumer publishers that enables publishers of all sizes to learn from each other and employ best-in-class tools and technologies. EquiSoft is also the only firm actively investing in audience management tools and capabilities for the Canadian marketplace, and I look forward to being a part of what I believe to be a strong and evolving company."
"After years of continuous development and an investment of over $5M to build a cutting-edge solution, we now have a mature product in our hands, powered by a division with a huge potential, " said Luis Romero, CEO and Founder of EquiSoft. "The rapid growth and geographical expansion of our Insurance and Wealth Management divisions have monopolized our attention in the past few years, and we were looking for someone who not only had specific expertise in the media industry, but also the passion and leadership skills to bring our Media division to the next stage of its evolution. Brinda's wealth of experience and past successes will definitely help EquiSoft achieve its near and long term goals in the media and publishing industry.", added Romero.
