With more than 20 years of experience in the technology consulting industry, and 13 years in leadership roles, her insight has enabled significant growth for our business. Liza currently leads a team of approximately 30 colleagues focused on alliance management, partner marketing, and partner programs support.
“We work closely with our partners to deliver solutions that help our shared clients accelerate time to market, enhance customer experience, access new markets, and outshine their competition,” said Liza. “Maintaining mutually beneficial relationships with our partners is a critical component of Perficient’s business, and I take pride leading this team of exceptional colleagues tasked with executing this challenge.”
Liza continues to drive strategy through the support of her global teams to leverage and deliver end-to-end solutions to our clients. Among her many accomplishments, she received honors as CRN 2022 Women of the Channel and Power 70 Solution Providers. Liza was also recognized as an Excellence Award recipient in 2022, an award honoring Perficient colleagues for their commitment to embracing each of Perficient’s core values.
Through Liza’s strong leadership capabilities, our centralized partner teams effectively combat challenges and pivot direction as market conditions change. Her team’s ability to rapidly respond and retool helps Perficient bring in new partner offers while scaling our business. With collaboration, coupled with Perficient’s strategy and global support serves, our partner teams drive innovative business solutions that propel our clients forward.
“Creating an alliances program and building the team included facilitating standardized plans, approach, enablement, and best practices,” said Liza. “I strive to foster a collaborative environment between alliances, partner marketing, and partner programs management while enabling a continued close working relationship with sales and delivery and our partners.”
Meet Liz Stuart, Director, Global Alliances
For more than 20 years, Liz Stuart has worked within the value-added reseller, channel partner, and consulting spaces to build new strategies that impact the technology industry.

Meet Lynn Brading, Global Alliance Director, Adobe
Lynn Brading is a growth-oriented Global Alliance Director who manages one of Perficient’s largest partners, Adobe. Marking her eighth year at Perficient and eleventh year managing an Adobe partnership, Lynn plays a large role in streamlining digital solutions across the globe. Recently, she helped to expand our global presence by creating a strategic plan to align with the Adobe teams in Latin America. Through this effort, our team advanced the pipeline of net new opportunities in a new region.
“Enablement and alignment are going to be the key to success in 2023,” said Lynn. “I have leaned into making sure all the sellers in our organization have the tools to go out and find new deals. I also prioritize connecting our Sales representatives to Adobe’s Sales representatives. This is a relationship business and making sure the rep-to-rep alignment happens is the start of those key relationships. In addition to that, continued global growth, delivering quality work, and maintaining and creating relationships in the channel will be key to our success.”
Much of our successful partnership with Adobe can be attributed to the dedication of Lynn’s team. In 2022, our Adobe partnership initiated global growth in Latin America and Europe. Looking ahead in 2023, Lynn’s team has a plan for expansion in the Asia-Pacific region. In addition, she was instrumental in Perficient’s recognition as the 2023 Adobe Digital Experience Emerging Partner of the Year, Americas. Lynn also spearheaded the longest running event at Adobe’s Annual Digital Experience Conference, The Women in Digital Breakfast. Her determination to provide impactful solutions and ability to quickly adapt to change sets our team on the path to exponential success.
Along with her success at Perficient, Lynn is also a National Board Member for Pink Ribbon Good. This is an organization that helps support breast cancer and gynecological cancer survivors. She brings a positive mindset and strong attention to detail to every project, which proves instrumental in building lasting relationships with our partners.

As a true testament to Growth for Everyone, Kathryn is consistently developing new skills and growing her career at Perficient.
“As my role continued to evolve, I recognized the increasing need to build stronger channel partnerships within the digital space,” said Kathryn. “With support from my leadership, I made the career shift to alliances, and it has been the best decision possible for my professional trajectory. I now manage some of our fastest-growing digital partnerships, working on incredible digital experience platforms.”
In the last several years, Kathryn has stepped into her position by facilitating stronger relationships with leadership and sales teams. Her goal for the upcoming year is to accelerate growth through global expansion while utilizing strong field management to complement our existing client base. Kathryn largely contributed to a Partner of the Year award that Perficient received, and continues to advance digital strategies for our clients, partners, and business.
“Our key to success in 2023 will be customer satisfaction,” said Kathryn. “There is always a bigger opportunity to connect and spend more time understanding our customers’ business and unique challenges. At Perficient, we deliver an incredible range of solutions that serve every industry. Part of this customer satisfaction approach includes growing with our customers and providing a global lens to our conversations.
