Erin Wynn is the SVP and General Manager of Park IP Translations, a Welocalize company. She is competitive by nature and enjoys collaborating and driving teams. Therefore, having the responsibility for the dynamic Park IP Translations team makes her feel right at home. She thrives in companies with an entrepreneurial spirit, doing things differently, and where change is the norm.
Erin joined Welocalize, parent to Park IP, as part of the Transware acquisition in 2008. Prior to taking on the General Manager role for the Park IP Translations subsidiary, she was Welocalize’s senior executive responsible for global sales and marketing. Before joining Welocalize, Erin spent the last 20 years in various sales and management roles. She feels her current success comes from many years in the trenches. She had great success as an individual contributor and feels strongly that in order to lead you have to have been there before and understand what others are going to have as challenges. She has held roles in sales management, channel development and management, and vendor relations. After college Erin worked at Piper Jaffray and McGladrey & Pullen in Minneapolis. Her introduction to sales came when she joined CBT Systems in the emerging e-learning industry. She had great success and moved through the ranks for the following 10 years. She then joined Transware and started her journey in the localization industry.
Erin is from the Midwest of the United States growing up in Iowa, going to college in South Dakota, first job in Minneapolis. You betcha! She now lives in the middle of the Sonoran Desert in Arizona (the Midwest winter’s will do that to you). Her true passion is being with her husband. David of more than 20 years, their daughter Kyah Ashley and the families two labradoodles Bogey and Jazz. When she has time she enjoys reading,golf, biking, exercise (really any sport will do), movies anything that involves spending time with the family. She is also known to shop a bit, I think they call it a “shopaholic”!
