Texada Software announced that it has appointed technology executive Matt Harris as CEO. Harris brings to Texada a track record for launching disruptive new technologies and driving sustainable revenue growth for a variety of software and technology companies, the company said.
Harris joins Texada from Viewpoint, a division of Trimble, where he was the president and general manager. Viewpoint provides an SaaS platform for construction companies that connects a contractor’s projects and job sites with their back office. Harris was with Viewpoint for more than 11 years and served roles in strategy, sales, and product as it grew nearly twenty-fold into a construction industry software platform leader. Prior to Viewpoint, Harris has held leadership roles with FEI Co., Netscape and General Electric among others.
Harris takes the reins from Nabil Kassam, founder of Texada Software, who said, “Our mission has always been to make work easy and instant, through our platform that increases the capabilities and productivity of businesses who rent, sell, manage or service equipment assets. I’m excited to welcome Matt as CEO, and I look forward to supporting Matt and the entire Texada team going forward as we deliver more value to our customers and to the equipment industry.”
“Matt’s extensive experience with growing and leading an enterprise SaaS business at scale in the construction software space, coupled with a long track record with many successful technology businesses, give him a unique vision and leadership skills to help grow the business with the Texada team,” said Matt McDonald, partner at Banneker.
Harjot Sachdeva, operating partner at Banneker Partners added, “Matt’s experience, vision, and deep market expertise make him the ideal choice to lead Texada in creating the next generation of software solutions for equipment dealers and rental companies. As the company announces new offerings and new partners, Matt’s demonstrated proficiency at launching products and delivering value to customers will be vital for the company’s next phase of growth.”
“With Banneker, Texada is ideally situated to build on its legacy and leadership in heavy equipment rental software markets. The strength of its customer base, its product portfolio, and its organization all provide meaningful pillars from which the Texada platform can expand,” said Harris. “The industry is urgently looking for transformative solutions which integrate their businesses with their customers and their operations. Texada will focus on further developing its integrated platform to meet these critical needs.”
