STRONGSVILLE, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Foundation Software, Inc., developer of FOUNDATION, America’s #1 Construction Accounting Software, and its sister company Payroll4Construction.com announce the addition this month of Paul Noonan as the companies’ first Chief Growth Officer. As CGO, Noonan’s primary responsibilities will include refining processes and structures to facilitate growth, improving current products and services, and exploring new acquisitions and markets.
“Being in a mature industry like we are now means two things: growth is tougher, and it’s easy for companies to get complacent,” said Fred Ode, CEO/Chairman of Foundation Software. “Instead, we’re going to keep stepping on the gas.” Ode started the company in 1985 and has served as one of the company’s primary growth engineers. “We’ve grown about six-fold since 2000, and we’re at the point now where we feel having someone at the executive level focusing just on growth is essential. With Paul’s level of experience in technology and organizational growth, we’re excited to bring him on board.”
Foundation’s growth has received wide recognition. In 2015, the company received its fourth consecutive Weatherhead 100 award, eighth consecutive NEO Success Award and second Crain’s 52 award. It was also named to the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies for 75% growth over the previous three years.
“I couldn’t be more thrilled to be part of such a great team,” Noonan commented. “When I was looking for my next opportunity, it was almost an unfair advantage, knowing what a great success story these companies are. They’re sitting on the front edge of a tremendous future, and I want to contribute to it.”
Noonan began his professional career with the Babcock & Wilcox Company as a construction draftsman before helping to develop and implement a computerized project management and materials tracking system. He attended the University of Akron and has served as Director of Information Technology, as national Vice President and as President of several companies. He most recently comes to Foundation from International Data Management, a software development firm and service bureau he founded in 1994.
Foundation Software develops and supports job cost accounting and project management software for the construction industry. Its flagship program is the award-winning FOUNDATION construction accounting software, available on premise, on the cloud and with mobile tools.
