Companies are now looking to unify management of all enterprise assets, including those in the IT, facilities and telecom areas, so I feel that I can help Rivermine set their strategic direction to meet the needs of this evolving market.
Fairfax, Virginia (PRWEB) April 7, 2009
Rivermine, the leading provider of automated telecom expense management (TEM) solutions, today announced that former MRO Software president and CEO, Chip Drapeau, has joined its Board of Directors. Drapeau brings more than 25 years of technology leadership experience to Rivermine. In 1982 he joined MRO Software, a leading enterprise asset management company, and held a variety of management and executive positions before becoming the company's CEO in 1998. Drapeau's tenure with MRO Software culminated in a very successful acquisition in 2006 by one of the world's largest software and systems integration companies.
"Chip has a proven track record of helping technology companies scale to meet the needs of thousands of customers globally," said Mark Logan, president and CEO, Rivermine. "With hundreds of companies currently using Rivermine's solutions and 110% sales growth in 2008, this is exactly the type of experience we need to grow to the next level."
Prior to being named CEO of MRO Software, Drapeau held roles in the sales, support, and research and development functions of the company. As CEO, he led a highly profitable organization and set the company's strategic and product direction.
"Telecom and network asset management are natural extensions of the multi-billion dollar enterprise asset management industry that MRO Software helped to establish," said Drapeau. "Companies are now looking to unify management of all enterprise assets, including those in the IT, facilities and telecom areas, so I feel that I can help Rivermine set their strategic direction to meet the needs of this evolving market."
Drapeau joins the Rivermine board as an independent member, bringing the total number of directors to 7.
