Tech company hires COO and CFO
A local tech company has added a new member to its leadership team.
Grand Rapids-based software company SalesPad recently hired John Carrier as COO and CFO.
“I love the company culture here at SalesPad,” Carrier said. “I’m continually impressed by the product offerings. I would have loved using it in some of my other companies. I love how SalesPad is built around helping other companies radically grow their businesses. I look forward to helping support both our own and our customers’ growth.”
Prior to SalesPad, Carrier was the executive director of the Allendale-based nonprofit Love INC, where he continues to serve as a board member. Carrier’s distribution experience stems from his 10-year tenure as president of Reid Supply, a global distributor of industrial supplies.
Before to his work with Reid Supply, he developed his expertise in the manufacturing world as president of Excellence Manufacturing, an automotive parts manufacturer. Carrier began his career as a CPA with Ernst & Young.
“We are incredibly fortunate to have someone of John's caliber on our team. John brings deep financial and operational expertise as well as 20 years of manufacturing and distribution leadership experience,” said Mike Biwer, SalesPad CEO. “He's lived in the shoes of our customers, which will be an immense help in delivering quantifiable value in every customer engagement."
Carrier is a graduate of the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business.
