In the role, Archibald will help guide the company through its next phase of growth and will work alongside partners and customers.
On her appointment, Archibald said she is excited to be in the role.

“Huge opportunities await in this new era of business, and I’m excited to help our customers capitalise on them, and strengthen Qualtrics’ position at the forefront of the experience management category.”
Bill McMurray, managing director in Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ) for Qualtrics said that the firm is focused on supplying Australian and New Zealand businesses support and services, and that Archibald’s appointment was an example of this.

She has also held roles at American Express, HP, Compaq, Digital Equipment Corporation, AT&T and NCR.
Archibald’s appointment follows a wave of other senior appointments and partnerships made by Qualtrics across APJ in 2019, with the firm more than doubling its APJ workforce and bringing on board EY and LDCC as partners.
