MATRIXX Software has appointed board member Glo Gordon as the new CEO, succeeding Dave Labuda.
She is to lead the company through its next phase of transformative growth. The transition is expected to take place throughout the month of February. Following the transition, Labuda will remain in the company as a non-executive chairman of the board and senior innovation advisor.
Labuda stated, “It’s been an honor to lead the talented MATRIXX team and I’m excited that Glo will bring her incredible skills and experience to the CEO role as she leads the company forward.”
“I look forward to supporting her as we enter this next chapter,” he added.
Glo Gordon has been a board member at MATRIXX since 2018 and has brought her extensive global leadership experience in enterprise software, OSS/BSS and sales to the table. She has a proven track-record of driving transformative growth and sales.
“It is a privilege to have the opportunity to lead MATRIXX. The company is embracing its greatest opportunity with the rollout of 5G networks across the glove and is uniquely positioned to capitalize on the market with its innovative, cloud-native 5G solutions,” said the new CEO.
Gordon added, “I am excited and humbled to continue the work of establishing the company as the service provider industry’s go-to solution for rapidly standing up new offerings for today’s fast-paced, competitive global economy. Our cloud native technology, along with 5G, presents an amazing opportunity for us to deliver immediate value through our direct sales force and our valued partners.”
She recently served as Chief Revenue Officer (CRO) at Uptake, the industry leader in industrial AI and IoT. Before Uptake, she was the CRO at Jasper, a leading IoT service platform where she made a significant impact on delivering IoT solutions to Service Providers and enterprises on a global scale, before Cisco acquired the company for $1.4 billion.
MATRIXX Software Chairman, David Strohm, said, “The board is confident that Glo’s demonstrated ability to build world-class go-to-market teams and customer relationships will enable us to unlock the full potential of the company’s patented, best-in-class technology, empowering service providers to stand up new offerings quickly in response to their customers’ growing demands, specifically in 5G and cloud.”
“The board extends its deep appreciation and thanks to Dave, who is a proven visionary and has been an exceptional leader, championing a culture of relentless innovation at MATRIXX,” he continued.
