Heather Farley

COO, Access Intelligence

Heather's professional biog

Responsible for overseeing the operations and strategic direction across AI’s portfolio, I work closely with division leaders to identify, acquire and integrate synergistic businesses as well as create strong organic growth through new product launches. Additionally, as a member of Access Intelligence’s Board of Directors, Heather plays an integral role in ensuring that the vision and mission of AI’s core strategic initiatives are successfully executed across all operating units. A recognized leader in the b2b community I've held board positions on SISO (Society of Independent Show Organizers), SIIA (Software & Information Industries Association) and SIPA (Specialized Information Publishers Association). In my tenure, I've integrated more than a dozen acquisitions and countless product launches. My expertise in both direct marketing and paid content have been instrumental in the company’s dynamic transition from a traditional b2b media provider to an integrated global media platform company comprised primarily of face-to-face events and online members-based communities. Prior to Access Intelligence,I was a senior vice president and group publisher with Phillips Publishing International, where she began her publishing career in 1988.
