IonQ (NYSE: IONQ), a leader in the quantum computing industry, today announced the appointment of Stacey Giamalis as its new Chief Legal Officer and Corporate Secretary.

With a proven track record of navigating complex legal landscapes, she will play a pivotal role in IonQ’s strategic initiatives.

During her career, Giamalis has led three companies through initial public offerings and successfully completed eight mergers and acquisitions. Most recently, she served as the SVP, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary of PagerDuty, where she played an instrumental role in the company’s highly successful public offering in 2019.

Additionally, her international experience and EU citizenship bring a global perspective to her role at IonQ.

"I am honored to join IonQ and contribute to its pioneering work in quantum computing," said Giamalis. "I look forward to collaborating with this talented team to navigate the legal-related opportunities ahead as we continue to advance our quantum technology and drive growth."
