TORONTO, Jan. 3, 2018 /CNW/ - Pivot Technology Solutions, Inc. (TSX: PTG), ("Pivot" or the "Company") a full-service information technology provider, today reported that its Prosys business unit generated revenue of approximately US$98 million for the month of December and approximately US$725 million for the year ended December 31, 2017 (on gross billings1 of US$106 million and US$814 million, respectively). 

These results are preliminary only and are subject to confirmation and audit.  Although revenue for both the month and the fiscal year represents a record for Prosys, the impact on Prosys and overall Company earnings has yet to be determined. Moreover, 2017 consolidated revenue and earnings for the Company as a whole have yet to be finalized and will only be released upon completion of the year-end audit in March 2018. 

"We recently realigned the sales leadership team at Prosys to better capture opportunities," said Kevin Shank, Pivot's President and Chief Executive Officer. "We believe these changes will improve our vendor/partner alignment and the productivity of the sales teams covering Prosys territories.  Additionally, the changes created management capacity to assist with the ongoing expansion of TeraMach, which is one of Pivot's new growth leaders."

Among the changes made:

  • John Little (Pivot's Executive Vice President, Sales) took responsibility for all remaining Prosys sales teams within the South-Central regions and for the expansion of sales and services into new markets within the Central region of the US.
  • John Conner (Pivot's Executive Vice President, Sales), who had previously run the South-Central region of Prosys and worked with the TeraMach business unit, is now 100% focused on expanding the Canadian service businesses.
  • Ariel Valdes was appointed Professional Services Pre-Sales and Mike Lagana was named Professional Services Delivery Leader for Prosys.
