SILICON SLOPES, UT ­­—MARCH 21, 2018 —Workfront®, the leading provider of cloud-based Enterprise Work Management solutions, today announced that Jon Pexton has joined the company as chief financial officer (CFO) and a member of the executive leadership team. As Workfront’s CFO, Jon is responsible for all aspects of its financial operations including corporate finance, investor relations, accounting, tax and treasury.

 Jon brings to Workfront more than 25 years of wide-ranging   experience that includes equity and debt offerings, mergers   and  acquisitions, international expansion, and strategic   planning at high-growth companies. He has been recognized as   CFO of the Year by both the Utah Technology Counsel   and Utah Business Magazine.  

 A results-oriented financial leader, Jon is always focused on   driving and improving business through sound data analysis   and understanding of where the company is going despite rapid   growth and organizational complexity. As a result, in his prior role as CFO of Progrexion, the financial technology company more than tripled in size. He also previously served as CFO of Interbank FX, and held leadership positions at Callidus Software, Vitria Technology and Remedy Corporation, all multinational publicly traded software companies.  He also spent eight years with Ernst & Young working in their audit, tax, and transaction advisory practices.

“We conducted a thorough search for the right CFO for Workfront, and are so happy to have Jon coming on board,” said Alex Shootman, CEO of Workfront. “We need an experienced financial leader who has the knowledge to help Workfront achieve its goals of becoming the

Operational System of Record for managing modern work, and someone with experience in the complexities of managing a rapid-growth company. We found that in Jon.”

Jon joins Workfront at an exciting time as the company was recently recognized by Comparably as being among the top 50 companies nationwide for women to work for and named to the Women in Tech Council’s 2018 Shatter List for actively employing measures to help break technology’s glass ceiling. Workfront has also been named to Utah Business Magazine’s Best Companies to Work For and Deloitte’s Fast 500 for five consecutive years, and Forbes Cloud 100 for two consecutive years.

“Workfront is a leader in transforming the way teams work in the enterprise,” said Jon Pexton. “I’m excited to be a part of a company that is making that change happen. I’m also really looking forward to working with the impressive teams and leadership guiding Workfront today.”
