Changepoint Appoints New CEO and CFO to Lead Company Through Next Phase of Growth

Executives Will Accelerate Innovation and Execution to Drive Global Business Expansion

Changepoint, a leading provider of project and portfolio management, enterprise architecture and professional services management applications, today announced it has appointed Matt Scheuing as Chief Executive Officer and Scott Mahan as Chief Financial Officer. Both bring more than 25 years of multi-sector senior leadership expertise in enterprise software to their new roles.

“Matt’s ability to connect and unify vision, people and ideas sets him apart as a leader. There’s no better person to lead Changepoint forward,” said Robin Pederson, a member of Changepoint’s Board of Directors.

“I joined Changepoint to be part of a company where I believe the possibilities are limitless and our products directly impact how people do business,” said Scheuing. “I’ve been following the company’s success for some time and am confident in our ability to help our customers run more agile businesses.”

Before Changepoint, Scheuing spent time in leadership roles as CEO and on the Board of Directors at enterprise technology companies ranging from Fortune 200 to venture funded start-ups. Most recently, he was CEO of Tideland Signal, where he led high performance teams in the delivery of innovative aids to marine navigation solutions. He previously spearheaded StrataGen, delivering enterprise telematics solutions to fleet markets worldwide. Matt also led IntelliTax, a leader in financial transactions processing in the tax industry. His prior experience also included C-level roles in enterprise document, workflow and speech recognition applications.

Chief Financial Officer Scott Mahan also joins the executive team. He’ll oversee Changepoint’s financial operations and work closely with him to develop and evaluate corporate strategy.

“Building infrastructure to support a rapidly expanding technology company is no small task,” said Scheuing. “Scott’s been the engine behind several high-growth companies. His expertise will ensure we have the foundation, tools and processes in place to support our rapid global growth and expansion.”

Prior to Changepoint, Mahan spent more than two decades managing private companies and public enterprises growing corporations from early-stage to a global presence. His diverse background includes broad experience in finance, operations, management and accounting at various big data analytics, mobile, transactions processing and enterprise software companies.

These additions to Changepoint’s leadership team follow several months of steady growth marked by the addition of global customers including Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona, Cigna Healthspring, Home Retail Group, Ricardo and Sephora. Today, more than 1,000 global customers rely on Changepoint’s project and portfolio management, enterprise architecture and professional services management solutions to improve their efficiency, business agility and performance.

In May, Changepoint continued its streak as the only technology provider named to both Gartner IT PPM Magic Quadrants with an appearance in the “Leaders” quadrant of the IT Project and Portfolio Management Software Applications1 and the Cloud-Based IT Project and Portfolio Management Services Magic Quadrants2. Changepoint was also recognized as a “Visionary” in the Gartner Integrated IT Portfolio Analysis (IIAP) Magic Quadrant3.
