Board Announces Appointment of Visionary Executive as Company Expands Focus in Data Governance
Naperville, Ill., February 28, 2018 – Infogix, a leading data and analytics software provider, today announced that Early Stephens has been promoted to CEO. He will assume day-to-day operations of the company and oversee M&A activities. Stephens, who joined the company in early 2017, most recently served as Infogix’s executive vice president of sales and marketing.
“This is the perfect opportunity for Early to take on this leadership role. We’ve selected a deeply committed, strategy-minded executive who has a comprehensive understanding of the company’s products, its customers and the market,” said G. William McKinzie, chairman of the board for Infogix. “Early’s strong technology background and extensive industry experience will help Infogix capitalize on new and emerging market opportunities to drive further successes.”
Stephens has more than 15 years of experience in software company executive management positions. Before joining Infogix, he provided strategic planning and general business consulting for corporate and public-sector organizations at Prime Strategies.
Prior to Prime Strategies, Stephens served as executive vice president of strategy at Manatron, where he was responsible for all sales, marketing, product management and merger and acquisition activities. During his tenure, he transformed the company from a legacy provider to a trendsetting leader in the real property valuation and taxation industry. When Manatron was acquired by Thompson-Reuters in 2012, Stephens led the transition plan and integration of former Manatron business units into the Thompson-Reuters organizational structure.
“Our solution expansion is exciting, and is launching at a pivotal time for Infogix as we delve into new opportunities. We have an exceptionally talented staff that is dedicated to improving our best-in-class data management software and moving our business forward,” said Stephens. “I look forward to working with them to unlock future growth opportunities.”
With this hire Infogix reaffirms its long-term commitment to customers, many of which have been with the company for more than 20 years. As pioneers in data controls and data quality, the company continues to evolve and innovate and move toward governance-powered data. At a time when the industry is at the cusp of more disruption, Infogix continues to dedicate resources to its existing product stack, while focusing significant efforts to develop the world’s leading governance-powered enterprise data exchange platform.
“Customers have always seen our relationship as a partnership. As we progress into new areas of data management, we believe that current customers will recognize the value of these changes, the improvements they will bring across our product portfolio, and realize the growth potential they have working with a trusted partner like Infogix,” said Stephens. “Prospective customers will appreciate that we’re a one-stop shop that delivers analytics-enabled data management and data governance—a combination that sets us apart from the competition.”
