eFront, a leading software provider of financial solutions for managing alternative investments, is happy to announce the appointment of Bret Bolin as a non-executive director of the eFront Board of Directors and John Ellsworth as Vice President of Product Management.
Both new appointments are a consequence of the company's continuing strong growth and rapidly expanding customer base
"eFront is entering an important new phase in its evolution as a company," explained Olivier Dellenbach, eFront CEO and founder. "Our growth has allowed us to expand our product offerings more rapidly and mirrors the rate of change in our industry, and, therefore, the needs of our customers. So, we must respond with constant innovation and new product capabilities. Both new appointments arose from our need to seek new talent to manage this effort and ensure eFront's continued success far into the future. We all look forward to their contributions."
Bret Bolin joins the eFront Board of Directors with more than 20 years software and technology experience, most recently as Executive Chairman and CEO of Misys, a leading provider of financial services software. Prior to Misys, Bret was President and CEO of P2 Energy Solutions and CFO of Ventyx. Bret graduated from Texas Tech University and holds a BBA in Finance.
"This is a particularly exciting time to join eFront," commented Bret. "Having reached a leadership position in this market, the company cannot just maintain its level of innovation; it must continually increase its capacity to innovate, which will help secure both its position and its growth."
John Ellsworth graduated with a B.S. in marketing from Bentley University and holds an MBA from Babson College. His career has focused on product management most recently at Dassault Systems, but prior to this has held numerous other senior and executive posts in organizations such as Lotus Development, Pragmatech Software, Kadient, Inc..
John and the current team of product managers will continue to define and enhance products for our customers as eFront continues to anticipate, innovate and lead solutions for tomorrow's market. John and his team manage the new requirements specification process, coordinate product development with R&D, preparing and launching products in concert with Marketing.
Both new appointments are expected to bring significant value to eFront and will help ensure its leadership position.
