WALTHAM, MA (PRWEB) November 13, 2012
Peoplefluent®, a leading social human capital management technology company, today announced the appointment of Jaime Ellertson, CEO and Chairman of Everbridge, to its Board of Directors. Having successfully built, grown and sold several market-transforming software companies, Ellertson brings significant value in strategically guiding and managing high-growth businesses. This Board appointment follows the appointments of Robert Courteau, most recently President of North American Operations for SAP, and Tom Tardio, CEO of Rogers and Cowen, who joined in June 2012. In the last six months, Peoplefluent has expanded its Board acumen with global business management, technology expertise and consumer marketing.
“Peoplefluent has had a year propelled by award-winning innovation and strong market and financial performance. In this defining year for our Company, business pace and employee commitment have met each other in equal measure as we rapidly extend our product suite with new technologies and expand our fast-growing team to meet the needs of our customers worldwide. Our innovation agenda will not cease, and with that, nor will the need for the focused and thoughtful management of our development, operations and engagement initiatives at every customer touch point. Our success will only be derived from the success of our customers,” said Charles S. Jones, Chairman of the Board of Peoplefluent. “Jaime is not a stranger to this environment or the many dynamics and requirements for success within it. His experience and perspectives enrich our Board at precisely the right time.”
Ellertson has an established and indisputable reputation as a growth CEO. He has founded three innovative high-growth software companies and sold them to market leaders. He has a proven track record of building great private and public companies with growth strategies that deliver strong investor returns. He is deeply knowledgeable across the enterprise software landscape and has consistently sold into the Fortune 500. Ellertson has held nine CEO posts in his extremely successful tenure as an entrepreneur and business leader, transforming and growing business including Openware Technologies, Tartan (sold to Texas Instruments), Purview, Interleaf (NASDQ:LEAF), S1 Corporation (NASDQ: SONE), Gomez (sold to Compuware) and Cloudfloor (sold to Everbridge). He currently is the CEO and Chairman of Everbridge.
“I am excited to join the Peoplefluent team at a time when both the value of human capital has never been higher and the ways in which leading organizations interact with their human capital are changing dramatically,” said Mr. Ellertson. “The Peoplefluent suite delivers game-changing value by leveraging social networks and advanced mobility to deliver human capital management for the next generation of successful companies.”
