As Verusen begins a global expansion into the oil and gas, mining and power generation and utility segments, the MRO intelligence provider has added three new sales and revenue hires.

“We are seeing significant growth in the market for MRO materials optimization, especially in select vertical markets,” Verusen CEO Scott Matthews said in a May 21 news release. “We’re excited to expand Verusen’s reach into these markets and executive bench with MRO-focused sales and revenue operations leadership.”

Verusen has appointed:

  • MRO industry veteran Jeremiah Woodford as Chief Revenue Officer, responsible for leading the sales process, including revenue and sales pipeline creation, market development and sales operation. Woodford brings over two decades of sales leadership experience in asset-intensive industries, MRO and supply chains. He previously held leadership positions as CRO of IFS EAM and at IBM Consulting as Partner and Global Practice Leader of MRO Inventory Optimization.
  • Jeromy Risner as Director of Pre-Sales Engineering. Risner has transformed sales processes and effectiveness in the enterprise asset management (EAM) and MRO inventory optimization software space at IFS Ultimo and IBM Oniqua.
  • Jim Combs as Sales Director. Combs is the former Worldwide Senior Sales Leader of IBM MRO Inventory Optimization. He has provided the computerized maintenance management system/EAM needs for numerous heavy asset industries, including mining, utilities and manufacturing. For the past 30 years, Combs has been an enterprise sales leader working with Vale, Duke Power, FPL, Goldcorp, Cenovus, General Mills, ThyssenKrupp, Griffith Lab, IMERYS, and other clients in asset-intensive industries.

“Having Jeremiah, Jeromy and Jim join Verusen at this time is pivotal to our ability to expand rapidly within asset-intensive vertical markets where traditional inventory optimization software no longer meets the needs of these complex global organizations,” said Paul Noble, Founder and Chief Strategy Officer of Verusen. “Their combined and deep understanding of the changing landscape of MRO is essential to our trajectory for global sales growth and vertical expansion in 2024.”
