Host Analytics has confirmed Grant Halloran as their new CEO. The news comes nearly six months after Vector Capital acquired Host Analytics and placed Ron Baden as temporary CEO. Baden has now moved into his previous role as Chief Revenue Officer.

Host Analytics has announced how excited they are to have Halloran as the CEO during their exciting development period. David Fishman, the Chairman of Host Analytics and MD at Vector Capital believes there are considerable opportunities ahead and with Grant’s significant experience in enterprise software combined with years of experience, Fishman believes the business will continue to expand considerably.

Fishman believes Grant is the ideal person to manage Host Analytics as the business intends to develop into a global leader in financial planning and close solutions.

Halloran originally founded Orbis, a specialist SaaS marketing resource management company which was eventually acquired by Infor. Halloran then became the Global VP & GM at Infor before taking up the position of Chief Marketing Officer at Anaplan.

His experience gained at Vector Capital is something that Fishman is hoping will be replicated at Host Analytics. Halloran decided to leave his leading senior role at OmniSci, the analytics platform that has also experienced significant growth. Halloran recently explained that it is an honor to be working as the CEO of Host Analytics, a business that he believes is set for substantial growth, contains a strong customer base and an experienced and talented workforce.

Since being acquired by Vector Capital, the business has focused specifically on expanding its position in the US and International market. Halloran believes there are considerable opportunities out there with finance leaders looking for techniques to be more agile, strategic, and enhance their financial performance. Halloran believes Host Analytics is perfectly equipped with the capabilities to support finance leaders in delivering their goals.

Positive times for Host Analytics

With new leadership, host analytics is expected to continue expanding, particularly with recently published results and continued expansion plans. Whilst there is little details in how Halloran will continue to grow the business, the company is in a good position to take advantage of an industry that has been forecast to exceed $3 billion by 2022.
Host Analytics was named as a leader in the G2 Grid for Corporate Performance Management (CPM) and was recently selected as a leader in the 2019 Dresner Wisdom of Crowds EPM Market Study.

Howard Dresner, the founder, and chief research officer at Dresner Advisory Services states that Host Analytics has continued to accelerate their position as a market leader within the EPM space. Dresner congratulates Host Analytics for their performance and remaining an industry leader.
