ASG Software Solutions (“ASG” or the “Company”) today announced the appointment of Charles Sansbury as the organization’s president and chief executive officer, effective September 1, 2015. Mr. Sansbury will also join the Board of Directors.
“After a thorough and deliberate search for a candidate who could build on ASG’s strong foundation, the Board is pleased to have found the best individual to assume management of this leading enterprise IT software solutions provider,” said Brad Colman, principal at GSO Capital Partners LP and Chairman of the Board. “Charles’ technology background and proven record of driving organizational improvements and delivering long-term growth strategies makes him ideally suited to lead the next phase of the company’s growth and success.”
With more than 16 years of experience in strategic, financial and operational leadership, Mr. Sansbury joins the Company’s executive management team after most recently serving as COO and CFO of the global software company The Attachmate Group, which he joined in 2006. He previously served as CFO, from 2001 to 2006, at Vignette Corporation, a publicly-traded provider of enterprise content management software. Prior to Vignette Corporation, he was a principal in the Investment Banking Group at Morgan Stanley, specializing in the software, professional services and semiconductor industries. Mr. Sansbury holds a Bachelor’s degree from Georgetown University and a Masters of Business Administration from The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
“I am excited to be joining a company that is addressing important business process changes amid an increasingly complex technology environment,” said Charles Sansbury, newly appointed CEO of ASG Software Solutions. “The opportunity ahead for ASG is substantial, and I believe that we are well positioned to create greater value for ASG customers, business partners and employees.”
“Charles is joining ASG at a time when the company is experiencing renewed growth, following a very positive transformation,” said John C. DiDonato, managing director at Huron Consulting Group and acting president of ASG Software Solutions. “Charles is the right leader for ASG at the right time, and we’re looking forward to him driving ASG’s global strategy and building on its current success.”
Mr. Sansbury served as an ASG Board observer for the last several months, which allowed him to develop a solid understanding of the business and its considerable potential. This will further enable a smooth transition and enhance the Company’s path toward future success.
ASG partnered with executive search firm Bespoke Partners to fill this important role.
