CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 06/03/13 --   Fruition Partners, the
leading provider of technology-enabled services for the IT Service
Management (ITSM) sector and a ServiceNow Preferred Partner, today
announced the appointment of Dave Chandler as Chief Financial Officer
(CFO). Formerly the Senior Vice President of Finance and Operations
at Razorfish Inc., one of the world's largest interactive advertising
agencies, Mr. Chandler will lead Fruition Partners' finance,
accounting, tax and treasury functions from the company's corporate
headquarters in Chicago.  
Mr. Chandler has held a variety of roles during his more than 20-year
career in the finance and operations departments at both public and
private companies. Most recently, Mr. Chandler was responsible for
finance, legal and operational functions as Senior Vice President of
Finance and Operations at Razorfish. Prior to Razorfish, Mr. Chandler
was corporate controller and head of financial planning and analysis
at Diamond Management and Technology Consultants, an international,
publically traded digital strategy consulting firm. He began his
career with Andersen Consulting and the investment bank Smith Barney
Shearson and earned his MBA at the Kellogg Graduate School of
Business at Northwestern University. 
"Dave Chandler brings an exceptional track-record with high-growth
technology-oriented services firms to the role of CFO, and we're
excited to have him join the company at this rapid-growth stage,"
said Marc Talluto, CEO and Founder of Fruition Partners. "I look
forward to working alongside Dave as we execute on our long-term
vision of helping companies realize the promise of Cloud Service
Management."  
By 2014, the overall market for IT cloud services is expected to grow
to more than $55 billion, representing a significant market
opportunity for ServiceNow and its strategic partners. As a result,
Fruition Partners has experienced substantial growth in recent years
with headcount climbing to more than 200 cloud professionals. The
company closed its first round of venture capital funding in December
2012. The $12 million Series A round was led by Trident Capital, a
S
ilicon Valley firm with an exceptional track-record of backing
pioneering companies that leverage emerging technologies to redefine
the next-generation of business services. 
Mr. Chandler's vast experience will prove useful in helping Fruition
Partners meet the accelerated growth and unprecedented global demand
for elevating service management to the cloud.  
"I'm delighted to join the Fruition leadership team to help build on
the tremendous success the company has experienced as the world's
largest and most experienced integration partner of ServiceNow," said
Dave Chandler.
