New structure accommodates company’s continued growth – elevating Brill to focus on company’s strategic direction and key clients while Papay leads global business
SANTA CLARA, Calif. – January 7, 2020 – Anglepoint, the leader in software asset management (SAM) to the Fortune 500, today announced it has appointed current CEO Ron Brill as Anglepoint’s new President and Chairman, and current COO Brian Papay as the company’s new CEO.
The change comes after a period of unprecedented growth, and uniquely positions Anglepoint to capitalize on an impending inflection point in the industry, while maintaining its best-in-class SAM services to the world’s leading organizations.
“With the prevalence of cloud and related technologies, we’re at a critical juncture where SAM and ITAM need to adapt to an “as-a-service” model”, says new Anglepoint President and Chairman Ron Brill. “With this move I will focus more on Anglepoint’s strategic direction and key clients while Brian will run our growing team. I’ve worked closely with Brian for over 15 years and couldn’t be more excited to see him take over the CEO role.”
In the last few years, Anglepoint has experienced over 30% compound annual growth in its SAM business serving more than 500 enterprise clients, globally. During that same period, the company expanded to seven countries and 100+ employees, opened a new physical office in London, expanded its Santa Clara, Calif. headquarters, and completed the design and construction of a new larger office in Lindon, Utah.
Brian Papay joined Anglepoint in 2017 as its Chief Operating Officer and brings 15+ years of experience in Software Asset Management and licensing. In addition to Anglepoint, Brian was responsible for Oracle’s License Management Services Group for North America, ran BEA Systems’ Licensing Team for North & South America, and was a Director at KPMG.
“Our significant growth is a reflection of the rising demand for high-quality SAM services, as well as the strength of Anglepoint’s commitment and value to Fortune 500 enterprises,” says new Anglepoint CEO Brian Papay. “This is just the beginning. I’m thrilled to lead our growing, global team as we meet the immense demand for transformational SAM/ITAM solutions.”
