Beezy Inc., a digital workplace built for great employee experience in Office 365, has announced the appointment of Mike Hicks as chief marketing officer. The addition of Hicks to Beezy’s executive leadership team is driven by the company’s exponential growth and increasing need for large organizations to deliver a ready-built Digital Workplace for Office 365.

With the addition of Mike to our team, combined with our strong product roadmap, Beezy will continue to strengthen our leadership position in the market and accelerate our growth.”
