LAS VEGAS, April 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Aptos Engage 2018 –Aptos, Inc., a recognized market leader in retail technology solutions, today announced the hiring of Jeff Laborde as finance leader. Laborde, who is based in Atlanta, will report to Aptos CEO and culture leader Noel Goggin and serve on the company's executive leadership team.
Laborde brings to Aptos more than 20 years of experience in corporate finance, M&A, public accounting and investment banking. Prior to joining Aptos, Laborde held CFO roles at several private and publicly traded software companies including Accruent, Benefitfocus and Infor.
