CHARLOTTE – Ekos, a craft beverage business management software company, announced the appointment of Chris Rosbrook to the position of CFO in a press release today.

Rosbrook has more than 20 years of experience in technology, software, finance, and investment banking. He joined Ekos from MapAnything, where he served as CFO, helping the company raise $75 million in equity capital.

Ekos recently completed an $8 million funding round. The company said Rosbrook’s new role will help Ekos invest those funds strategically as the company releases new products.

“His background in investment banking and experience scaling a fast-growing startup will be incredibly valuable as we continue to position Ekos as the market leader in business management software for the craft food and beverage industry,” said CEO Josh McKinney.

Ekos is a business management system designed for craft beverage producers to easily manage their inventory, production, sales, and accounting in one place. The company partners with over 1,700 craft producers in 40 countries.
