Accounting software maker Cougar Mountain Software has promoted Dave Haworth to executive vice president, from his most recent position as chief sales officer.
Since joining Cougar Mountain Software in 2004, Haworth also held positions including business development manager and director of customer support.
Chief executive Chuck Gossett will continue to manage financial opportunities, as well as strategic alignment and execution.
“In the past years, Dave Haworth has been instrumental in elevating our business process, employee collaboration, and achieving greater efficiencies within the company,” stated Gossett. “These successes will help Cougar Mountain accelerate our abilities to better serve customers and expand within this highly competitive accounting software market. As we transition into a new phase of product development and expansion, I’m thrilled to have Dave as our executive vice president.”
Cougar Mountain has recently established a three-year plan that includes improved product opportunities, technological advances, channel partner expansion, cloud and mobile strategies, service advancements, and vertical expansions. Overseeing the execution of the plan will be a primary responsibility of Haworth.
“Our road map for the coming year includes multiple product releases for our existing business segments and Denali Payroll, an innovative powerful and user-friendly solution early in the year,” said Haworth. “I am truly excited to be leading the team that will write the next chapters of Cougar Mountain’s successful history. Innovations in the areas of mobile and cloud will help us serve our customers better and respond to market needs for accounting products that go beyond minimal business processes, help organizations reduce fraud, and scale as organizations grow.”
