ECI Software Solutions has named Trevor Gruenewald as Chief Executive Officer and promoted Sarah Hagan to President and Chief Operating Officer. Ron Books, ECI’s current Chief Executive Officer, will transition to the role of Chairman.
As part of this change, Gruenewald and Hagan will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of ECI, while Books will continue to work closely with both the leadership team and board of directors on driving the strategic mission and vision of the company.
Gruenewald will look after ECI’s overall product and M&A strategy, continuing to position ECI for future growth while staying true to the company’s mission to support SMBs with the technology that they need to sustainably and profitably grow their businesses.
“ECI is singularly focused on and dedicated to helping our SMB customers get business done,” he said. “That focus has led ECI to where it is today, and I am honoured to take on the CEO role to lead ECI through its next stage of growth.”
Books added: “When I joined ECI in 1999, we were a start-up. Together with our employees and customers, we’ve grown into a global organisation supporting SMBs around the world. Trevor and Sarah have made a tremendous impact on our company since they joined, and the business couldn’t be in better hands. We’re all very excited about the future ahead.”
