GFI Software targets SMBs with CEO hire

“Our goal is nothing less than to create the premiere IT management software company for small and medium businesses."

Security specialist firm GFI Software has appointed industry veteran Scott Brighton as its new chief executive officer, with a strong channel focus for the future.

Brighton brings more than 25 years of experience in the industry, joining GFI from Aurea Software, following roles as CEO of Artemis International, a global project management software company.

Brighton was appointed CEO following the sale of a 100 percent shareholding in GFI Software to new investors.

“I am delighted to take over as CEO at this critical time for GFI Software, and I’m looking forward to working with the executive team to help the company realise its full potential,” Brighton says.

“Our goal is nothing less than to create the premiere IT management software company for small and medium businesses.

“Whilst maintaining our focus on our award-winning on-premises products, our growth will be driven by the combination of extraordinarily powerful but incredibly simple cloud-based IT solutions coupled with a world-class marketing engine and channel infrastructure.

“We expect this combination to energise and expand our customer base.”

Brighton also expects acquisitions to play a key role in the rapid growth of GFI.

“We see an aggressive M&A strategy as a key part of our growth,” he adds. “We expect to develop as a core competency acquiring great but complex technology that we can transform into simple, cloud-enabled products that drive immediate value for customers.

“Our customers and channel partners are going to be thrilled by the expansion of our portfolio we expect to drive over the next 24 months.”
