ATLANTA, GA | JUNE 1, 2016
AchieveIt Online, LLC., a leading provider of cloud-based enterprise software for planning and execution, has announced today that it has appointed Christy Johnson as its new Chief Executive Officer.
Prior to joining AchieveIt, Johnson served as Chief Operating Officer for Buckhead Investment Partners and BIP Capital, playing a key role in the rapid growth of both companies. She also served on the BIP Capital investment team, helping entrepreneurs and operators accelerate their businesses.
Johnson is not new to AchieveIt and has been serving as interim CEO since November, 2015. Intimately familiar with the product, market and current fundraising track, Johnson garnered full support from the AchieveIt leadership team for her to lead the charge into the next phase of growth.
“At BIP Capital I had the opportunity to watch over twenty companies evolve, but AchieveIt always stood out as something special. The last six months has validated that we are positioned for breakout growth and the tremendous value of the product. I am laser focused on taking the company to a top industry position,” says Johnson.
After expanding the client base by 336% and user base by 500% in 2015, AchieveIt continues to experience record growth in 2016. Earlier this year, AchieveIt received funding from BIP Capital and other angel investors for a $2.5 million capital investment round. Funding will be used to reinforce the core technology platform, expand the development team and fortify the processes and infrastructure for scale. The enterprise software company will bring a series of products to the market over the next 12 months that will greatly augment the productivity of individuals, teams and enterprises.
“Christy, like the rest of the BIP Capital team, has known for awhile that one of the biggest opportunities we have invested in is AchieveIt. Under Christy’s leadership in the last six months, AchieveIt has fine-tuned its value proposition and the company is now rapidly accelerating enterprise sales. We have every confidence that Christy will soon be recognized as one of Atlanta’s top emerging business leaders,” says Mark Buffington, Managing Director of BIP Capital.
