With Don's experience, energy, and passion for high growth within a financially sound framework, he's an incredible match for Jive.
Orem, Utah (PRWEB) January 09, 2017
Jive Communications, a leading global Unified Communications provider, announced industry veteran Don Pratt has joined its executive team as Chief Financial Officer.
Pratt has held CFO roles in tech companies for more than 18 years, primarily in the telecom, data, security, and UCaaS (Unified Communications as a Service) markets. During this time, Pratt raised over $350 million in equity and debt financing, and helped lead several venture-backed companies to successful exits.
Pratt rounds out Jive’s executive management team and brings decades of experience in navigating private and public capital markets, fund raising, and IPO preparation. In addition, Jive will benefit from Pratt’s deep experience in the communications tech sector, enabling Jive to continue its high growth in a dynamic industry.
Pratt was drawn to Jive because of his strong belief in the multi-billion-dollar UCaaS market and Jive’s focus on advancing communications technology. “Jive’s platform has been designed for high availability and scale, a foundation to high growth and significant market share,” said Pratt.
Pratt is confident that the best of Jive’s story is yet to come. “Jive is different from its competitors because it has accomplished so much with so little investment,” he said. “It really is astonishing and a credit to the leadership team. The company is a worthy Harvard Business School case study project. It has created a culture of strong fiscal responsibility and performance accountability. These important core values will benefit us as we potentially look towards being a public company.”
“We couldn't have found a more perfect fit for Jive's CFO,” said John Pope, CEO. “With Don's experience, energy, and passion for high growth within a financially sound framework, he's an incredible match for Jive.”
