Before InVision, Hickman was the vice president of consumer business at Adobe Systems, where she was responsible for more than $200 million in business and 20 million Adobe users. At Adobe, she also led product management for all design, web and interactive tools, including Dreamweaver, Flash, InDesign and Illustrator. These products comprised a portfolio totaling $1.2 billion. She developed Adobe’s Creative Cloud concept, which became the driving force that transformed Adobe from a boxed software to one of the industry’s most successful SaaS business models.
“We believe Lea’s wealth of knowledge and global industry experience working with Silicon Valley companies will prove to be extremely beneficial to Logiq as we further develop and execute our go-to-market strategies,” noted Logiq’s CEO, Tom Furukawa. “We have arrived at a critical inflection point in our evolution, especially after acquiring Fixel AI and recently launching a major state-backed micro-lending program in Indonesia. We expect Lea to play an instrumental role in guiding our go-to market strategies as we continue to evolve into a leading global innovator of data-driven consumer intelligence and marketing technology platform. I’m excited to have her on board.”
Prior to Adobe, Hickman was as a senior director of market development at Macromedia and assisted the company in defining go-to market strategies for its emerging, high growth businesses. She also served as vice president of marketing at Catapulse, which was later acquired by Rational Software, where she was responsible for all corporate and marketing functions. She earlier served as the director of product management at Netscape, where her successful repositioning of the product drove annual revenue growth from $12 million to $32 million in one year.
