Toronto, Ontario, Canada, 2011/11/02 - Steve Taylor, CEO of BPS Resolver, Inc. is pleased to announce the appointment of three new Vice Presidents to architect and execute the company’s product strategy - BPSresolver.com.
The following positions are effective immediately:
• Malissa Lundgren, VP, Product, GRC Cloud;
• Joe Crampton, VP, Product, Ballot & Survey;
• David Pinder, VP, Services and Support.
BPS Resolver, a leading GRC solution provider, is reorganizing to better fulfill the demands of current and future customers. A key element of this strategy is the appointment of “product owners” who are mandated to drive product strategy and execution across sales, development, professional services and support. With full management of each product line’s P&L, they will lead cross functional teams that manage the product roadmap, support sales and delivery and coordinate effort across company departments.
Steve Taylor said of these appointments “We have been considering for some time how to better meet changing customer needs and a dynamic business environment. Under this structure we will unleash the entrepreneurial spirit of these highly motivated individuals and give them the tools and resources they need to deliver the features and benefits demanded by our customers, while identifying new markets that will continue to propel BPS Resolver’s business.”
Malissa Lundgren joined Resolver Inc. in 2004 and has held a number of diverse positions and taken on growing responsibility during her career with the company. These roles have included marketing, product management and most recently, Director of Solutions Consulting. In this role Malissa lead professional services and was instrumental in building out a department that designs and implements tailored solutions for customers. Prior to her BPS Resolver career, Malissa co-founded a company focused in mobile workforce solutions.
Joe Crampton joined Resolver Inc in 2006 and quickly demonstrated an ability to help clients achieve project objectives and to innovate alternative benefits of the company’s products. Joe was promoted to Senior Solution Manager where he managed large software implementations across North America and around the world. Following the merger of Resolver and BPS, Joe was appointed Director of Product Research and Marketing working closely with analysts, customers and management to help set product strategy and determine market opportunities while also acting as internal product evangelist. Joe has an honours degree in Human Computer Interaction, a combination of psychology and computer science, and continuously applies that perspective to the design and development of BPS Resolver’s software solutions.
David Pinder leads the professional services group at BPS Resolver, which provides training, custom development and implementation support. Dave has a wealth of experience managing enterprise level software implementations for large financial institutions, having worked on multi-million dollar, multi-year rollouts of solutions in both the compliance and audit universes, leading talented development and services teams. Dave joined BPS Inc. in 2004 and, as Director of Solution Delivery, has been responsible for the entire project life cycle, from gathering and documenting initial requirements and timeframes through delivering the final solution and obtaining client signoff and acceptance.
Dave’s mandate is now being extended to encompass ownership of the GRC Enterprise product line.
The company is currently finalizing transition plans to ensure smooth handover to other members of the BPS Resolver team where required. The new positions report to James Patterson, Chief Operating Officer.
