Galvia Announces Appointments to Advisory Board to Support International Growth

Galvia, the decision intelligence platform, is pleased to announce the creation of its Advisory Board, composed of experts in governance, finance, and economics.

According to Galvia founder and CEO John Clancy, “The board will provide strategic guidance and support the company’s growth into new markets as well as increasing business value to our customers.”

Galvia’s AI platform tracks business performance across multiple data sources, drawing actionable insights and automating routine tasks so teams can focus on what matters most.

Almost every industry today is adopting AI technologies. McKinsey’s newly-released Technology Trends Outlook 2022 named applied AI and industrialising machine learning as two of 14 of the most significant technology trends unfolding today. McKinsey research demonstrates that investments in AI provide long-term value in terms of both revenue and costs saved.

“On a daily basis we are talking to a wide range of industries, from human resources to information technology, about how Galvia can facilitate their digital transformation,” says Clancy, “Our advisory board is essential in creating new opportunities and accelerating our reach and impact.”
