This engagement was a great reminder that timing is everything. The Board was clear and disciplined with their requirements for a CEO which enabled us to focus on a small pool of targeted candidates. Joe stood out because he clearly met the Board requirement that the new CEO be excited about the team and possibilities for the company.

The company attracted large worldwide organizations from both public and private sectors, establishing pre-eminence in the Governance, Risk, and Compliance software segment. The management team and investor group are stellar and savvy.
