BOSTON, June 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- NucleusGrowth (http://www.nucleusgrowth.com/) continues to assemble a dynamic team of industry experts and thought leaders toward the goal of helping founder-owned software enterprises reach new levels of growth. The company has recently added three new members to its professional advisory network. Nick Mehta, James Ramsey, and Rob Pinkerton will each lend their expertise in the fundamental areas of customer success, sales, and marketing, respectively.
"Our professional network gives us unparalleled access to the industry's top business minds," said Jim Dunham, CEO and Co-founder of NucleusGrowth. "This allows us to bring best practices to the businesses with which we engage."
Nick Mehta will provide the NucleusGrowth team with invaluable expertise in the area of customer success. As the former CEO of LiveOffice, he was instrumental in helping the company achieve $25 million in revenue prior to its sale to Symantec. He currently serves as CEO of Gainsight, a leading customer success management company. Mehta has built a reputation as a respected thought leader in the email and messaging industry.
"When the questions and challenges involve sales, I call James Ramsey," Dunham remarked. During his career at NetSuite, Ramsey helped the company grow its revenue from $10 to $400 million–making it one of the largest public SaaS companies in the world. Now retired, Ramsey uses his 20+ years of experience in high-tech sales to advise early-stage ventures.
Rob Pinkerton joins the NucleusGrowth professional network to deliver marketing expertise to software companies on the cusp of great things. The Morningstar Chief Marketing Officer has continually demonstrated his innovative approach to customer, business, and technology marketing. Pinkerton holds a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Baltimore School of Law and has served as legislative counsel to both chambers of Congress on technology and social policy issues.
"Part of my mission with NucleusGrowth is to help other entrepreneurs be successful," explained Non-Executive Chairman and Co-founder Mike Smerklo. "We're focused on leadership, growth, and helping companies scale. The addition of proven leaders like Rob, James, and Nick to the network will help us meet all of those objectives."
NucleusGrowth has developed a holistic strategy for energizing software companies that are not quite hitting peak potential. The company looks for founder-owned enterprises then delivers working capital and industry knowledge to strengthen any soft spots in the organization. NucleusGrowth works from "playbooks," developed from decades of experience in the software industry, which map to the fundamental areas of success for any business. The company then puts proven operators in place to execute the playbooks and to ensure the business is on a trajectory for success.
The addition of Rob Pinkerton, James Ramsey, and Nick Mehta put NucleusGrowth in an even better position to strengthen founder-owned software companies and contribute to economic growth in this critical business sector.
NucleusGrowth is a software company founded by software operators, innovators, and entrepreneurs dedicated to helping good companies unleash their full potential. It has engaged the top experts in software and meticulously extracted what makes them and their companies great. Armed with that knowledge, NucleusGrowth has gathered a select group of operators and partnered with Housatonic Partners for capital to drive success. This unique mix of software industry knowledge, operators, and capital is the key to ensure companies meet their full potential.
