Leading retail execution platform, Movista, has announced David Pelham as a new Vice President of Sales Development. This is yet another hire for Jack Wilson, who was recently named Senior Vice President of Sales to drive Movista’s global sales strategy, execution and expansion efforts.
“I’m excited to be joining Movista and look forward to helping build a world-class sales organization to support their growth goals,” said Pelham.
He joins the firm on the heels of a $12 million growth investment led by Level Equity, a New York-based software-focused growth specialist. Movista will use the funds to develop new product features, accelerate innovation, invest in talent, and expand sales and marketing.
Dave brings to Movista more than 25 years of successful sales and sales management experience in strategic planning and business development for start-up ventures and global corporations with multi-million-dollar budgets and revenues, which include: Xerox, EMC, Fujitsu, Avaya and Hughes Network Systems.
“I’m delighted to have Dave’s knowledge and experience during Movista’s explosive growth” said Jack Wilson, SVP of sales for Movista. Pelham and Wilson have worked together previously at two other companies. “I’m excited to work with Dave for the third time in my career,” Wilson continued, “Dave’s successful background selling enterprise software is exactly what I was looking for to grow the Movista sales team.”
Movista is a finalist for the Arkansas Business of the Year Awards, which will be announced March 6, 2019. The company was founded in 2010 by retail veterans who understood the need for a smart solution to the issues experienced working with and managing a distributed workforce. The company pioneered the use of smart device applications to manage mobile employees and contractors. More than 40 enterprise clients use Movista’s smart platform, and demand for smart device software in the workplace has more than doubled for three consecutive years, growing Movista’s recurring revenues more than 300% since 2015.
