We told you to expect a rocket-propelled year for ZeroTurnaround, and now we have the thrill of welcoming Roger Colvin as our new Chief Financial Officer. Roger co-founded Bullhorn Software in 1999, now the world’s top software provider for recruiting and staffing companies, and led the company as CFO until departing in late-2012, when Bullhorn was acquired by private equity firm Vista Equity Partners. He took the company from its inception to hundreds of employees with a product that is now used by 5,000 organizations and 200,000 users in 150 countries. Whew, stats! Anyway, the point is that Roger knows startups, and he understands what it’s like to grow a business.
“Roger brings management muscle to ZeroTurnaround,” said Alex Laats, ZeroTurnaround’s President and COO. “He has the knowledge and experience to help take ZeroTurnaround to the next level of growth. Plus, he brings tremendous energy and enthusiasm to the team as we embark on the next phase our growth.”
Roger’s business acumen extends beyond the CFO-title, and he will be a valued advisor, colleague and coach to the entire ZT team. Roger’s positive personality is infectious, and he embraces his responsibilities beyond the executive demands with charm and a big smile on his face. In 2009, he was recognized by the Boston Business Journal as CFO of the Year Honoree.
