Orem, UT – August 31, 2011 – AtTask, Inc., creators of the first true social work management system, and worldwide leader in on-demand project and portfolio management (PPM) software, announced the appointment today of new President and Chief Executive Officer Eric Morgan.
Morgan joins the rapidly growing software maker on the heels of a strong first half of 2011 where the company’s revenue grew 31% year over year—a period in which the company also added more than 250 new accounts.
"Ten consecutive years of double-digit growth have established AtTask as a serious player in the SaaS world, the clear leader in the PPM Market and the leading visionary in the emerging Work Management space,” said Scott Johnson, Founder and now Chairman of AtTask. “Now is the time for AtTask to hit the gas, and I believe hiring Eric—a seasoned, sales-oriented executive who is uniquely qualified to operationalize our game-changing strategy—will drive massive results."
AtTask has an ambitious mission to impact the work lives of millions of people by helping them better understand and organize their work. Often referred to as the work management platform for the Facebook generation, the company cites its focus on the needs of the people who do the work as the number 1 reason it is out-pacing its competitors.
“AtTask has all the raw materials to be one of the next great tech stories and it’s already on the path,” said Eric Morgan, newly appointed President and CEO. “It’s fascinating how businesses are using AtTask to capitalize on the wave of tech-savvy people entering the workforce—and that’s just one of several areas where I think we have a huge opportunity to accelerate what we’re doing.”
