Citation Technologies Announces New Leadership Team to Drive Innovation and Global Expansion of Environmental, Health & Safety (EHS) Regulatory Compliance Solutions
Citation Technologies, an industry leader in delivering Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) global compliance solutions, today announced the appointments of four new executive leadership team members tasked with driving global adoption of software-as-a-service (SaaS) EHS risk and compliance management solutions. Well-known and respected IT industry veteran David Carlson has been named President & CEO of Citation Technologies. Carlson will lead the company to further innovate and accelerate global sales penetration of Citation's Compliance Suite, a selection of cloud-based software solutions for Fortune 1000 companies looking to maintain compliance and manage change in a rapidly evolving regulated environment while strengthening business sustainability, advancing corporate responsibility and promoting operational excellence.
“Complying with changing governmental agency regulations using cloud-based solutions makes the process of managing, and staying ahead of, regulatory changes easy for any business organization,” said David Carlson, President & CEO of Citation Technologies. “Companies need to be diligent when it comes to compliance versus risking the alternative.” The Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) report on 2011 Compliance and Enforcement Annual Results, for example, estimates the dollar value of complying actions to be taken in response to the EPA's enforcement actions was $19 billion. He added, “Citation's new leadership team is ready to deliver new service innovations and expand international reach of our compliance solutions. This will help customers to easily conduct regulatory research through task management, data collection and compliance status reporting to manage change and monitor risk without placing undue risk and potential violations on the corporate entity, general public and natural resources.”
The new executive team brings proven track records in IT corporate management, data management, operations, sales leadership and business finance from key roles at some of the world's largest public and private technology companies. Three new senior executives all reporting to Carlson are: Mark Hutchinson, Senior Vice President of Global Content and Product Management; Sam Buffington, Chief Financial Officer; and Tom Bonetto, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
