Case Study

Chief Executive Officer

PE-Backed Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Company




VP and above




Boulder, CO

Client Details:

Our client is a PE-backed software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider with a focus on compensation, calibration, and performance management tools. They needed a new CEO to move the company forward by designing and executing an operating plan and growth strategy that is efficient and scalable – from standing up a new software development team to evolving a referral-based sales model into a sophisticated commercial organization.

Client Situation:

Our client’s board of directors wanted to bring on a CEO who had a mix of Management Consulting and senior leadership experience; with a best-in-class network of current and former Management Consultants, ECA was a natural fit for the company’s needs. We successfully placed an ideal leader who was able to push the organizations growth to the next level.
