Aderant has hired Sage’s vice president of sales for North America to lead its global sales teams as chief revenue officer (CRO), we can reveal. George Seymour steps into the CRO role vacated by Chris Cartrett, Aderant’s new president who will become CEO in January 2022. Based out of Aderant’s Atlanta headquarters and reporting to Cartrett, we’re told that Seymour will help to deliver aggressive growth objectives for the company.
In his role as CRO, Seymour will draw upon his experience at Sage – a widely-known cloud-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) and accounting software provider – where Seymour expanded the company’s human capital management (HCM) sector. Prior to his tenure at Sage, Seymour held several other sales leadership positions, most notably as VP of sales for the Americas at Nuance, where he was responsible for achieving substantial growth and directed an overhaul of the organization’s go-to-market strategies.
His arrival comes as Aderant focuses on meeting the market demand for more cloud-based software-as-a-service solutions as well as continuing to evolve its on-premise product line.
Seymour said: “The opportunity at Aderant is extraordinary, and I am looking forward to working with Chris and his team to encourage the company’s upward trajectory,” remarked Seymour. “The CRO role allows me to leverage my unique mixture of legal industry experience and ERP/HCM knowledge to bring fresh perspectives and new ideas that will both invigorate sales and support its growth.”
