Business continuity and risk management software and services provider Fusion Risk Management has announced the appointment of Michael Campbell as CEO. As part of the executive team expansion, Fusion Founder David Nolan will assume the role of Strategic Advisor to support and contribute to product strategy, customer success, corporate development and company culture.
Campbell’s appointment follows the recent growth capital investment from Vista Equity Partners and is the latest step in Fusion’s long-term strategic plan to globally scale the business and strengthen Fusion’s leadership position in business continuity and risk management.
Campbell brings more than 35 years of software development and technology experience to Fusion. Most recently, he was CEO at International Decision Systems (IDS), a provider of asset finance software. Prior to IDS, Campbell served as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at FICO, an analytics company that helps businesses with decision making, where he oversaw global sales, strategic partnerships and professional services functions as well as the company’s consumer and business-to-business scoring business. Earlier in his career, he was a successful entrepreneur, founding Campbell Software in 1989, which was eventually acquired by SAP in 1999.
“As today’s risk landscape continues to evolve, I see tremendous opportunity for us to help the way global organizations navigate the convergence of risk and resiliency. Fusion has established itself as the market leader with its global customer base and seasoned executives and is even stronger now that it is backed by the resources and expertise of Vista,” said Michael Campbell, Fusion CEO. “I am excited to be part of a global team and look forward to building on the company’s tremendous accomplishments to drive the next phase in Fusion’s growth as it continues to revolutionize the way organizations manage risk.”
“We founded Fusion with a goal to help organizations prepare, manage and act in any situation by equipping them with tools to be successful. The incredible growth we’ve experienced in the last 13 years, combined with our expansion into risk, makes this the ideal time to grow our executive leadership team so that we are best positioned for our future success,” said David Nolan, Founder and Strategic Advisor for Fusion. “I am so proud of the amazing people, products, community and culture we have created. As we look toward our next stage of global growth, I’m thrilled to continue working with the team, focusing on market and product strategy as well as expanding the customer base.”
