Provectus Expands Its Leadership Team to Drive Business Growth

Provectus, AI-first consultancy and solutions provider.

Palo Alto, CA, April 19, 2023 – Provectus, a Silicon Valley artificial intelligence (AI) consultancy, announces the appointment of new executives to support its revamped business strategy. As part of a new strategy, Provectus is moving away from a centralized business development organization to a new decentralized model, grouping business operations based on geographic regions and industry verticals.

The leadership team expansion is part of Provectus’ broader efforts to streamline operations, accelerate customer success, and deliver industry-specific expertise, as the AI market matures and requires a more focused approach to addressing business needs across different domains.

“We are confident that our new appointments will significantly strengthen our leadership team,” said Stepan Pushkarev, CEO, CTO and Co-founder at Provectus. “Our updated strategy of decentralization is designed to enhance our ability to provide tailored AI solutions to our clients, based on their unique needs, and closer to their geographic locations. We look forward to the positive impact these changes will have on our business.”
