Innovative Interfaces Names Kim Massana CEO


Innovative Interfaces, developer of the Sierra Services Platform, the Millennium ILS, and other library technology solutions, has announced the appointment of Kim Massana as the company’s new chief executive officer. Co-founder, Chairman and CEO Jerry Kline will remain in his role as chairman.

Massana was previously president of Thomson Reuters Elite, a division of the global news organization that provides integrated information solutions to professional services firms in the legal, accounting, marketing, management, and IT consulting fields. Starting as senior vice president for strategic marketing and international in 2008, Massana was appointed president of that division two years later after Elite enjoyed an “impressive increase” in global sales under his watch, according to Thomson Reuters.

In his new role, Massana will focus on expanding the product and business development efforts at Innovative Interfaces.

Massana holds a business degree and a Master of Business Administration degree from ESADE in Barcelona, as well as a Master of Science degree in finance from the London School of Economics, and Kline cited his global experience in the announcement.

“I am particularly pleased that Kim has agreed to join us here at Innovative,” Kline said. “His experience and success, in the U.S. and internationally, will further strengthen the management team here and provide the leadership for Innovative’s continued growth.”
