Intervolve, a developer of supply chain software for beverage and packaged consumer goods companies, has a new chief executive officer.
Don McCall, a veteran manager in the software business, takes over CEO duties from Chris Newton, who remains chairman of the firm. Newton, who had been CEO since 2000, also is taking on additional duties as executive vice president and overseeing sales and marketing.
Intervolve, which is privately held, closed on $2 million in Series C venture funding in April of 2006. Among its investors is Triangle-based NC IDEA.
In his new role, Newton will direct sales, marketing and customer implementation teams, Intervolve said in a statement.
“Don knows how to build on a strong foundation and grow a successful company, which we define as nothing short of our clients being the envy of the entire consumer goods market,” Newton said of McCall.
Although Intervolve does not release specific finance information, it did say that sales have increased 35 percent so far in 2007 compared to 2006.
“Intervolve can truly be the dominant force in the industry,” McCall said. :We already have industry-leading products, the know-how to stay ahead of the market, and great commitment and chemistry across the organization. Now it’s time to scale by making vital investments in the product and in company growth to realize our inevitable potential. It’s going to be fun!”
McColl’s most recent position was chief operating officer at SirsiDynix. A productivity software company focused on the library industry. He also has worked at T. Rowe Price Group and Ceridian as well as Dun & Bradstreet.
