Co-founder John Chaney assumes role as Executive Chairman; President Norbert Orth Promoted to CEO
SEATTLE, June 22, 2016: As its strategic growth initiatives continue to translate into success in 2016, Dexter + Chaney, the leader in cloud-based construction ERP software and provider of Spectrum® Construction Software, is pleased to announce two significant moves among the company’s executive team
Dexter + Chaney President Norbert Orth will be assuming the additional responsibilities of CEO. Orth has been at the center of driving the company’s recent growth—setting corporate strategy and driving operational execution through the senior leadership and management teams. With his promotion to President & CEO, Orth will continue to lead the firm’s strategic growth initiatives.
John Chaney, co-founder of the company, will assume the role of Executive Chairman. He will lead Dexter + Chaney’s board of directors and work closely with Orth to shape the company’s future. He will also continue to work closely with the company’s product and development teams.
“I am extremely proud of the team we have in place here at Dexter + Chaney and am energized to help us in our continued growth,” Chaney said. “Over the years, Dexter + Chaney has been committed to bringing leading-edge technology to the construction industry and shaping the capabilities of modern construction ERP software. Both the short- and long-term opportunities for our business have me very excited.”
The past few years have seen Dexter + Chaney enjoy record sales and double-digit growth. This current growth stretch began as the company redesigned its Spectrum® Construction Software to deliver the first truly web-based ERP construction software to the market. In December 2014, Dexter + Chaney received a significant equity investment from Pamlico Capital, allowing the company to enact a series of strategic growth measures that has expanded the company’s footprint in the construction software marketplace. Among these measures: adding a number of new employees to help facilitate growth initiatives; significantly growing its strategic business partner and reseller network throughout North America; bringing on several new leading-edge technology partners and integrating their services with Spectrum; dramatically increasing research and development initiatives to further advance both software and technology options for its clients; delivering more in-depth training and educational resources for clients; and expanding its role as a leading supporter of industry associations and organizations.
“The strategic initiatives we’ve put in motion—and will continue to put in motion—have positioned Dexter + Chaney as the industry’s leader in delivering mission-critical technology,” Orth said. “I am extremely bullish on our company’s future and very excited for our next wave of software and technology enhancements. We have put together a stellar team at Dexter + Chaney and it is their hard work that has made our success a reality.”
