Expanded roles for Picot and Barrett as company focuses on growth

FREDERICTON, N.B. – Eigen Innovations, the Fredericton-based AI solutions provider, is expanding the role of two senior team members naming Greg Picot to the role of President and COO and Erin Barrett to Chief Revenue Officer. 

Founder and CEO Scott Everett explains that the changes are driven by the demands of Eigen’s growth trajectory, ensuring the company is well positioned to capitalize on its momentum with current and new customers.

“These strategic changes provide the structure for running and growing the business while also allowing me to continue to innovate on what makes us unique,” explains Everett. “Greg and Erin are suited for these critical roles not only because of their previous experience but also because of their relentless passion for Eigen’s success.”  Prior to joining Eigen, Picot was instrumental in helping build New Brunswick start-up Radian6 which provided social media monitoring that companies use to track and participate in conversations with their customers. Cloud computing giant Salesforce purchased Radian6 in 2011. Picot remained with the company in a senior product development role until 2015 when he joined Eigen Innovations as Director of Product Development.

“The path forward for Eigen is really exciting, and there are limitless possibilities”, says Picot.  “In just five years, we’ve grown from two employees working with local manufacturers, to more than 30 employees working with customers around the world.  I look forward to working closely with Scott, Erin, and our incredible team as we chart the path forward.”

Barrett has also spent much of her career in senior roles with technology companies including eight years with Xplornet Communications, Canada’s leading rural high-speed Internet provider. At Xplornet, she focused on customer acquisition and sales before assuming a key role in strategic business planning.  She joined Eigen’s leadership team in 2017.

“It all starts with providing demonstrable value for our customers.  We’ve proven we can do that,” explains Barrett. We now need to focus on finalizing our offering and go-to market engine to optimize that value at scale.””
