Area software firm shuffles leadership team

ConnectWise, following acquisitions, shakes up its C-suite.

TAMPA — ConnectWise, a Tampa tech firm that makes business automation software for technology solution providers has made a number of changes to its executive leadership team following a pair of acquisitions in the fourth quarter of 2019.

According to a press release, Geoffrey Willison has been named COO; Brad Surminsky has been named CFO; Clint Maddox has been named chief revenue officer; and Steve Cochran has been named chief technology officer.

“In late October, ConnectWise announced some transformational moves, including our acquisitions of Continuum and ITBoost, that will position us to become the leading technology and services platform for TSPs,” CEO Jason Magee states in the release. “Now, I am excited to announce the leadership structure that will help us execute on that strategy. This is an extraordinary team, one that represents the legacy ConnectWise and Continuum businesses, as well as respected leaders from outside who bring a fresh perspective. With these updates to the team, I am incredibly optimistic about our company going into 2020 and beyond.”

Willison, the release states, served as CFO of Continuum prior to the acquisition. Surminsky previously served as CFO at D+H, ADP, ACNielsen Canada and CentralSquare Technologies. Maddox, a veteran of Broadcom Inc., had been serving as a strategic advisor to ConnectWise since July.

Cochran was most recently the CTO at GHX, a former Thoma Bravo portfolio company. ConnectWise, a privately held firm, was acquired by Thoma Bravo in February 2019 in a deal that created 70 millionaires.
