With the Business Services & Software industry estimated to have a current market size of $149 billion, and the global enterprise content management (ECM) industry’s market size expected to increase to around $8 billion by 2017, it’s no wonder that any company that wishes to be competitive in these two industries requires experienced, insightful leadership at its helm.
Working via its wholly owned subsidiary Intellinetics, Inc., to develop and market state-of-the-art ECM solutions for client businesses of all sizes, GlobalWise Investments has established itself in such a position. The company has emerged as a player in these industries by using its combined management’s 150+ years of ECM industry experience to drive company growth through a dramatic expansion of sales distribution and taking advantage of industry trends and evolution. It is now targeting the unmet content storage and management needs of small-sized and medium-sized businesses, two markets that are expected to have markedly increased needs for ECM technologies in the future.
The company’s current management consists of:
Matthew Chretien (Interim President/CEO, EVP & Chief Technology Officer)
Mr. Chretien has served as GlobalWise’s Interim CEO and Interim President since July 2013, and its CTO since February 2012.
