BOZEMAN, Mont., March 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Schedulicity, provider of online scheduling and marketing tools for appointment, class, and workshop-based businesses, is thrilled to announce the return of its founder and former CEO, Jerry Nettuno, to the position of CEO. Nettuno, a pioneer in the online appointment scheduling industry, founded Schedulicity in 2009 and led the company until 2013, when he gave the reigns to Schedulicity's former CFO and COO, Josh Spitzer. During that time, Nettuno served as the company's Executive Chairman.
"I've been sitting on the sidelines watching the market that we created become stagnant with little to no innovation," said Nettuno. "It's become a fragmented industry that's underdelivering on a variety of levels. I'm fired up about returning to put Schedulicity back into a position of leadership, delivering products and services to the delight of our customers."
Schedulicity has facilitated more than 70 million appointment and class-based transactions—representing over $4.5 billion in app-based commerce. "Even if you include other companies in the space, including MINDBODY Online and Booker, we're only just now beginning to scratch the surface. We'll be launching a growth initiative in the coming months that is intended to substantially increase the numbers of businesses and consumers that enjoy our product and establish ourselves as leaders in the space," said Nettuno.
"Upon founding Schedulicity, Jerry revolutionized the appointment scheduling market and created the best system for discovering and booking local services," said Greg Rogers, Schedulicity Board Member. "Jerry is now returning to the helm to lead Schedulicity through its next phase of growth and offerings that will further inspire its customers."
