She most recently served as CEO of online-application software maker QuickBase, which was formerly part of Intuit; before that, she held several posts at Intuit, including as general manager of its small-business division — QuickBooks — and at Oracle.

“I am excited to welcome Allison as a director,” according to LPL Board Chairman James Putnam. “She brings to the board an entrepreneurial mindset and a strong understanding of how businesses have transformed their technology from a utility to a strategic asset.”

Also on LPL’s board is Paulett Eberhart, who has served as president and CEO of CDI Corp., a provider of engineering and information technology outsourcing and professional staffing services; HMS Ventures, which focuses on technology services and real estate; and Invensys Process Systems, a process automation company.
