Workrise Hires Ed Neumann as Chief Financial Officer and Promotes Joshua Trott to Chief Revenue Officer
Powering Strategic Growth
Workrise is thrilled to announce the hire of Ed Neumann as the company’s first Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and announced the promotion of Joshua Trott to Chief Revenue Officer (CRO).
In his role as CFO, Ed will be responsible for Workrise’s corporate finance function, including accounting, tax, treasury, and strategic financial planning and reporting. He is a three-time CFO in the technology space, most recently at ShopKeep, where he directed the company’s sale to Lightspeed Commerce in November 2020. Neumann brings more than 30 years of financial and operations experience, including 15 years in the fintech, e-commerce, and cloud-based SaaS industries. He has consistently delivered scale and financial results while overseeing initial public offerings and a number of acquisitions, divestitures, and integrations.
Since the middle of 2021 Joshua has served as Workrise’s Head of Oil & Gas, overseeing over 50% revenue growth, and shepherding the company’s rise to becoming the No. 1 upstream labor provider in the United States. Both Ed and Josh will serve as members of Workrise’s executive leadership team and report to Chief Executive Officer Mike Witte. On the news, Mike had this to say:
“Ed and Josh’s leadership will be critical as we consolidate on the wins of 2022 and look to accelerate our growth in 2023 and beyond.”
“With his proven track record at several high-growth tech companies, Ed is uniquely capable of helping Workrise build on our momentum. Josh’s success on our leadership team over the last two years, paired with his extensive connections and industry knowledge, give us full confidence he’s the right person to oversee all revenue operations across Oil & Gas and renewables.”
These additions round out an already deep executive roster at the highest levels. The future is bright with such a strong team at the helm.
