Host Analytics names new CEO after acquisition

Host Analytics, which provides financial planning and close solutions, has named a new CEO, Grant Halloran.

Halloran succeeds Dave Kellogg, who stepped down earlier this year when Host Analytics was acquired by Vector Capital. Ron Baden, who has served as interim CEO, will resume his role as chief revenue officer.

Most recently, Halloran was the chief commercial officer at OmniSci, a San Francisco-based provider of analytics solutions. Previously, he served as chief marketing officer at Anaplan, a global software-as-a-service company, from 2015 to 2017. Additional leadership roles include serving as global vice president and general manager at Infor, as well as founder and CEO at Orbis.

“We are thrilled to have an executive of Grant’s caliber lead Host Analytics during this exciting period in the company’s history,” said David Fishman, chairman of Host Analytics’ Board of Directors and managing director at Vector Capital, in a statement. “We see a tremendous opportunity ahead and we are confident that Grant’s deep experience in the enterprise software space, coupled with his extensive leadership background, will be a catalyst for continued growth and expansion.”

“It is an honor to serve as the CEO of Host Analytics, a company poised for rapid growth, with award-winning products, an incredible customer base, and a deeply talented workforce,” added Halloran. “Under Vector Capital’s ownership, Host Analytics has focused on accelerating growth in the U.S. and internationally. We see a significant market opportunity with finance leaders, in thousands of organizations, seeking ways to be more agile and to be strategic partners to the business. They are looking for powerful, easy-to-use software because they want to continuously optimize financial performance.”
