BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Continuum®, exclusive provider of the only vertically integrated IT service delivery platform that enables MSPs to scale rapidly and profitably, has strengthened its executive team with the appointment of Geoffrey Willison as Chief Financial Officer and Fielder Hiss as Vice President of Product, effective March 1, 2017. Willison is replacing founding CFO Steve Royal, who is retiring after nearly six years with the company, while Hiss takes on leadership of Continuum’s product team from the company’s Boston headquarters.
Willison brings with him an extensive background in corporate finance, financial planning and analysis, investor relations, and corporate strategy. At The Boston Consulting Group, he worked on strategic growth strategies for middle-market and Fortune 500 companies spanning multiple industries, and was most recently the CEO at Valore, an e-commerce marketplace and digital textbook publisher.
Hiss joins Continuum with significant experience in product strategy and management, having been responsible for EnerNOC’s product strategy, messaging and pricing as vice president since 2013. Prior to his time at the energy software company, he served in a similar role at Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks Corporation for over 13 years.
“Continuum is creating and enabling the most successful MSPs in the industry with its transformational business model and IT service delivery platform,” said Michael George, CEO at Continuum. “Our two new appointments bring financial credentials, experience leading global Fortune 500 companies to establish and execute growth strategies, and powerful product management leadership to Continuum’s executive team for continued success.”
“I’m very excited to join the Continuum executive team and help accelerate the company’s international expansion,” said Willison. “As CFO, I am looking forward to executing on our strategic growth plans and working with the great team that has led Continuum’s success.”
“Continuum’s suite of solutions for MSPs are held in the highest regard in the industry,” said Hiss. “It’s critical that we continue to deliver on the high standards that have been set for our partners, and build our platform to meet the needs of MSPs today and in the future. I’m eager to lead the product team here, applying our combined experience to take the platform to that next level.”
