As of January 1st of this year, I officially became CEO of SalesPage, as Bob Gordon transitioned to Chief Financial Officer. Chris Poisson, formerly our Director of Technical Development, was promoted to Chief Technology Officer. With Jennifer Rutledge (who joined SalesPage as Chief Operations Officer in October 2014), Bob, Chris and I form the new management team that will lead SalesPage’s efforts in product development, client support, and growth within the asset management industry. The key to any success is having a great team around you: I am thrilled to have the opportunity to lead the entire SalesPage team and to work with many of the best asset managers in the business.
As CTO for SalesPage, Chris will begin by launching Version 6.0 of SalesPage Financial (the latest release of our flagship product) with a modern, streamlined, user‑focused user experience. The product team is also working on a data management solution for Salesforce.com clients and on a new SalesPage Mobile experience. Chris is excited to be working with asset managers to solve the business and data challenges particular to this industry, and he expects that our team’s commitment to both product innovation and service means that we’ll be able to meet those challenges readily.
Since SalesPage announced these growth and succession plans, we’ve increased our staff by 30% and added two new clients: Pioneer Asset Management and Symmetry Partners. Our strategic hires this year include Greg Piaseckyj, formerly at Eaton Vance, as the Director of National Sales & Business Development, and Tim Moran, most recently from Kellogg, as the Director of Infrastructure and Security.
I feel fortunate to be working with both the SalesPage team and a group of fantastic asset managers. So, as we start 2016 with this new management team in place and an ever-growing SalesPage family, I want to say thank you to all of my SalesPage team members, to our Client Community, and to our partners; none of this would be possible without all of you. I look forward to working with you in 2016 and beyond!
