Seasoned industry professional appointed to new role amid rapid growth
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#acquisitions--Computer Design & Integration LLC (“CDI” or “the Company”) announced today that Brian Jones has been promoted to Chief Operating Officer (COO). He will now be responsible for overseeing all day-to-day operations of the business, including enterprise performance, management and oversight of the Company’s corporate processes, while continuing to lead the strategy and execution of its mergers and acquisitions efforts.
Jones joined CDI in February 2020 as Executive Vice President, Corporate Development, where he was tasked with developing enhanced financial operations and reporting for the business, while spearheading its mergers and acquisitions efforts. Under his leadership, the Company streamlined and consolidated many of its processes and procedures.
“I am fortunate to join a tenured executive team with tremendous experience and a passion for driving industry-leading results,” said Jones. “My goal is to ensure we maintain our competitive edge, our exceptional culture, and our ability to provide added-value to our customers. I look forward to helping CDI grow its business through both organic and acquisition activities.”
Jones has nearly two decades of financial services experience and holds a B.S. in Finance from Penn State University. Before joining CDI, Jones spent over 15 years at KPMG Corporate Finance LLC (KPMG), where he previously served as a Director in the Technology Banking team. In this capacity, he oversaw and executed mergers and acquisitions and capital raise transactions. Prior to KPMG, he worked for a boutique banking firm that ultimately grew into one of today’s prominent financial information and deal management SaaS platforms.
“Brian is an extremely versatile professional who has a deep understanding of our operations and our business,” said Eric Bakker, Chief Executive Officer, CDI. “His leadership, management and organizational skills have helped us increase efficiency, and he has a proven track record of maximizing growth potential. We are confident that his expanded role puts CDI in the best possible position to prepare for the future.”
The promotion comes amidst significant business and financial growth for CDI. Earlier this year the Company entered into a strategic partnership with One Equity Partners (“OEP”). Most recently, CDI announced changes to its executive leadership team and the acquisitions of Plan B Technologies, Inc. (“PBT”) and P5 Solutions, Inc. (“P5”).
