Growth–and the innovation required to achieve it–has been a fundamental part of our company’s vision since it was founded more than 30 years ago. From a business perspective, a growth strategy is critical to:
- Thriving in a competitive marketplace
- Providing new technologies for our customers to meet your challenges
- Creating a community of customers to share ideas and benefit from each other’s contributions to our products.
Likewise, our success depends on how much our employees push themselves to grow and evolve with the company.
It is with that spirit of growth and evolution that I announce some exciting changes at AssetWorks. I will be stepping out of the day-to-day operations to expand the company’s focus on growth and innovation.
Rob Hallett has taken on the role of Chief Operating Officer (COO). Many of our customers are already very familiar with Rob, who has been with AssetWorks for 10 years, including 8 years serving as the Director of Professional Services. Rob will be responsible for the day-to-day domestic and international operations of Product Management, R&D, Service Delivery, Customer Care and Quality Assurance across all product lines.
What does this mean for you? While this change signals a strategic evolution for us as a company and will lead to many near- and long-term improvements, daily life with AssetWorks should stay on course. Rob’s new role of COO is effective January 1 and he will be working diligently on a smooth transition within the various departments affected by this change.
Both Rob Hallett and I will stay in communication with you as we make further changes and improvements to AssetWorks. While our blog is one way to share this information, we’ll share information through our newsletter, phone calls and face to face meetings. I encourage you to reach out to your AssetWorks contacts if you have any question about this change and how it affects your organization. Here’s to a great start to 2016!
