Based in California, Wills will be responsible for building Strategic Alliances and Channels, and driving corporate partner expansion in the US, including the recruitment of new partners, and expanding the existing partner base. She will be reporting into Chief Revenue Officer at Medius, Jeff Swan, who joined the company in January 2022.
