Message from New Involver President & CEO, Don Beck
My name is Don Beck, and I’m the new President & CEO at Involver.
I want to tell you all how excited I am to be here. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, Involver is a hot company on the brink of greatness. I will lead this company to it’s next set of very lofty goals scaling the business. And we have big goals.
Since the late 1990s, I’ve been able to take on challenges and more responsibilities at several world-class organizations. I’ve made a name for myself by boosting revenues and profits for software and SaaS companies Postini/Google, Adobe, IBM, J.D. Edwards, Brio, NComputing and Webroot Software.
At Involver, I see the kind of energy, intelligence, and potential I can guide and help channel for big wins. When I met Involver chairman and co-founder Rahim Fazal, I could sense that energy in him, too. I knew immediately that this was a huge opportunity for all of us. Consider what Involver has already accomplished in the past few months:
In the past 12 months, Involver has:
- Doubled its average deal size and
- Hit 125%, 140%, and 157% of quarterly revenue targets
In the last 6 months, Involver has:
- Grown 400%+
- Surpassed 560,000 fan pages running Involver apps and
- Reached a rate of 3,000 new customers per day
Add to those accomplishments the company’s proprietary social markup language, SML™, (the first of its kind in the world) and industry leading Audience Management Platform (AMP), and you will see a social media firm poised to rise.
What I will bring? A firm foundation in business sales fundamentals, an entrepreneurial spirit for finding new markets and new sources of revenue, and wisdom. That’s a promise.
It’s an honor and a privilege to work here, and I don’t want to do anything that interferes with how this engine is running. I want to add rocket fuel.
These are exciting times at an exciting company. Ready for lift off?
