With over 36 years of industry experience, Clubb will be responsible for sales and operations in ANZ, focusing on strengthening Nuance’s position in speech and natural language understanding solutions within the region.
“Gordon is an exciting addition to the Nuance senior leadership team and we’re very pleased to have him at the helm of operations in Australia and New Zealand,” says Jason Stirling, senior vice president and general manager, Nuance, Asia Pacific.
“His proven track record and depth of experience makes him an invaluable asset and the ideal candidate to drive the local success of our speech-based customer care innovations and mobility capabilities.”
Clubb joins Nuance from SAS, holding the role of regional director of SAS South East Asia and managing director of SAS Australia and New Zealand.

“I’m thrilled to join Nuance at a time of exciting growth and innovation,” Clubb says.
“The widespread recent adoption of speech technology can be directly attributed to the strong consumer demand, for voice-enabled interfaces in their daily lives.
