Momentum is growing as companies seek differentiators that help them compete in the tightest labor market in 50 years. Research shows that culture is that differentiator. Having developed technology over the past 13 years that allows organizations to easily align actions to the 15 Culture Drivers common across all Top Workplaces, Energage founder Doug Claffey has focused on building out the senior leadership team to ensure the right pieces are in place to capitalize on this opportunity.
As part of these broader organizational changes, Claffey is pleased to announce that he will now assume the role of Chief Strategy Officer and partner with new CEO Eric Rubino to focus and drive the Energage mission forward.
“I am incredibly proud to have founded and led this company to exceed $20 million in revenue while staying true to our core purpose and becoming one of Philadelphia’s first Certified B Corporations,” said Claffey. “Now, however, is the time to shift focus. The HR tech market is ripe for growth, and our extensive domain expertise is a significant advantage.”
Eric Rubino brings to Energage decades of SaaS software experience and a wealth of leadership experience, including 12 years at SAP, where he was senior vice president and chief operating officer. During his tenure, Rubino played an integral role in building the infrastructure, management team, and support services for the entire SAP America region. While there, SAP America grew from approximately $5 million to more than $3 billion in total revenues.
Since early 2018, Claffey has promoted from within and recruited industry veterans with a track record of achieving aggressive growth objectives to support, execute and lead his and Rubino’s plans into 2020 and beyond. The Energage senior leadership team includes President and COO, Dan Kessler; Vice President of Human Resources, Lisa Sordilla; Chief Financial Officer, Mitch Codkind; Chief Product Officer, Rich Gallagher; Chief Commercial Officer, Tom Urie; and Vice President of Customer Success, Kimberly Gress.
Managing Partner and Co-founder of NewSpring Capital Michael DiPiano commented:
“Energage has tapped into something that can unlock the potential of any company, of any size, in any industry. The opportunity for growth is tremendous, and Energage is positioned perfectly. Doug’s leadership combined with Eric’s experience and that of the broader senior leadership team will undoubtedly enable the company to scale quickly without any loss of momentum. All of us at NewSpring are excited to be part of this ride and look forward to providing continued support.”
“After my first meeting with Doug and the full Energage leadership team, I knew I wanted to be part of what’s happening here,” said Rubino, CEO of Energage. “Doug has created a company with purpose and made the right moves to position Energage well for fast-paced growth and market leadership. I’m excited to meld our experiences and work with this group of proven leaders to unlock the team’s full potential. I am confident we will far exceed our goals.”
