Company doubles size of US teams to support customer growth in the region and appoints several new advisory board members

6th October 2021; London, UK: Global demand for digital transformation has driven Orbus Software to rapidly expand North American operations to serve the needs of large enterprise and government clients in the region. The latest quarter saw a 93% increase in new software bookings and the addition of new enterprise clients in financial services, healthcare, industrials and energy sectors, alongside the appointment of several advisory board members including former executives from Microsoft, Lucid and Atlassian.

With the global digital transformation market set to grow by over 20% in the next six years, the demand for cloud Enterprise Architecture platforms has accelerated, especially in North America. Orbus sits at the center of this transformation ecosystem serving over 150 customers in the region with recent wins including American United Life Insurance, Cook Medical, Northrop Grumman and MISO Energy. To support this expanding customer base Orbus is doubling the size of regional teams with open roles across multiple functions including sales, marketing, product, partners and customer success.

As a key part of this investment program and to support global expansion activities the company has also appointed several new advisory board members including:

  • Kirill Tartarinov, Executive Vice Chairman at Acronis and former EVP at Microsoft and CEO at Citrix who will lead the advisory board and provide strategic direction on company, product and cloud transformation areas
  • Dan Cook, CEO at and ex-Chief Revenue Officer at Lucid advising on scaling up go-to-market teams and partner relationships
  • Lou Franco, software business veteran and former Principal Engineer at Atlassian and Trello to guide on product and development topics

Add to this our expanding ecosystem of platform and technology integrations and partnerships with key industry players and we are hugely excited to be working alongside our global clients to deliver on their digital transformation objectives both today and into the future.”

Kirill Tartarinov commented; “I’m excited to be working with Michael and the Orbus executive team to guide customers on their digital transformation journeys and the rapid shift to cloud technologies.
