Simon Angove – Angove’s passion for innovation serves as a driving force at CentralSquare. Previously he served as Chief Executive Officer of Superion beginning in April 2017. Under his leadership, Superion merged with TriTech and the public sector and healthcare business of Aptean. This was one of the largest-ever mergers in the government technology space and enabled the new company to become the #1 provider of public safety software and the #2 provider of public administration software. Prior to Superion and CentralSquare, Angove served as a senior executive at Verint, a billion-dollar software company focused on customer engagement and cyber security, where he led the global growth business units. Earlier in his career, Angove was a serial entrepreneur, starting companies that leveraged innovations such as video analytics, workforce optimization and cloud computing.

Jeff Davison – Having joined as Chief Operating Officer in December 2018, Davison leads all aspects of the customer experience, including services, support and customer success management. With his expertise in delivering customer solutions and transforming on-premise deployments to the cloud, Davison will lead cloud delivery operations as the company continues to expand its position as a cloud-first software provider.

Chris Schwartz – Schwartz is the most recent addition to the leadership team, joining as Chief Revenue Officer in January 2019. With more than 20 years of experience in software, services and subscription-based sales, Schwartz’s skill in growing revenue, building high performing teams and simplifying sales and go-to-market processes will fuel the transformation of CentralSquare’s sales and sales-support functions. Schwartz comes to CentralSquare from CA Technologies (acquired by Broadcom), where he helped build out the go-to-market strategy for their market-leading Agile Management SaaS platform.
