Nice announced changes including establishing a new board to provide what its own press release described as, “strategic oversight of regional operations, a move indicating a sustained commitment to increasing shareholder value, improving corporate governance, and driving strategic growth. The Board will lead four specialized committees, each focused on accelerating growth in the areas of ESG, People Strategy, Audit & Compliance, and Strategy.”

Leading the coordination of the board will be Luca Longhin, who is appointed president of Nice North America. Since 2019, Longhin has worked on the “North American vision and strategy for growth, including driving post-acquisition integration of businesses in the region.”

Emanuel Bertolini is appointed as the new CEO of Nice North America, bringing over two decades of project management, sales, and P&L leadership experience. Nice says Bertolini has “amassed an impressive track record of driving growth and success in his previous roles at GE, including Chief Commercial Officer of GE Grid Solutions, CEO Americas of GE Grid Solutions, and various board positions.”

“We are excited about the organizational developments and future of Nice North America,” said Roberto Griffa, CEO of Nice group. “Luca’s history of success, not only in the region but also throughout his career with Nice, will continue building on the solid foundation established. We are also thrilled about the appointment of Emanuel, a highly regarded leader, and are delighted to welcome him to Nice. His global expertise working across a range of industries make him an excellent fit for the role in driving continued success to achieve the company’s strategic objectives.”
