Seven Lakes Technologies expands leadership team

Seven Lakes Technologies, which provides enterprise software and solutions to the upstream oil and gas sector, has appointed four executives to its senior leadership team: Chief Revenue Officer Jim Schulte, CFO John Pitstick, Chief Marketing Officer Sowmya Murthy, and Chief Technology Officer Bret Wiener.  

Schulte, a global enterprise sales veteran with 25 years of experience, is focused on customer lifetime value. As CRO, he will lead the company's corporate strategy, have responsibility for creating long-term profitable revenue growth, and drive its go-to market structure. Before joining Seven Lakes Technologies, Schulte was vice president of strategic alliances and western US sales for Thismoment, a content marketing technology company that enables companies to connect with their target customers in real time on any device. While at Thismoment, Schulte was responsible for the company's business partnerships, sales strategy and revenue growth. Schulte joined the company leadership team to support a transition into enterprise sales and to launch the Content Cloud SaaS platform. Prior, Schulte held software sales leadership positions at EMC, IBM, and FileNet.

Pitstick will oversee Seven Lakes Technologies' financial and administrative operations, including responsibility for building a scalable infrastructure to support the organization's growth. As CFO, Pitstick will manage the company's transition from its previous services-based model to one that is based upon providing packaged solutions to its clients. He previously led the worldwide financial operations for Conversant Inc., a publicly traded digital marketing services company. He also oversaw corporate development activities including nine acquisitions. In 2014, prior to joining Seven Lakes, Pitstick drove each stage of the due diligence, signing and closing of Conversant's $2.3 billion sale to a strategic buyer in December.

Murthy, a marketing executive, will lead all aspects of Seven Lakes Technologies' marketing program. She will be responsible for scaling the company's messaging to ensure it supports the targeted outcomes for its products, technologies and solutions. With more than 15 years of experience as a marketing strategy executive, Murthy has driven business strategies as a change agent for B2B technology companies. Prior to her role at Seven Lakes Technologies, Murthy was head of marketing for Unisys' $1.2B Technology Consulting and Systems Integration Business Unit and Internal Strategy Group, where she established market leadership, value-based messaging, and demand generation for startup converged infrastructure and cybersecurity technologies.

Wiener, as CTO, will have responsibility for overseeing the design and deployment of the company's software and other technology efforts. He has more than 20 years of experience in leading the design, development, testing, and support of large-scale enterprise web applications and managing large-scale databases and networks. He has a track record for orchestrating the growth of new ventures across a host of diverse industries. Most recently, he served as the IT director for Capital Brands, where he built the web and mobile development teams, the QA team, and the network administration and tech support teams, along with leading the development of the NutriLiving health and wellness platform and migrating 15 e-commerce and corporate websites to a new platform.

Seven Lakes Technologies offers product suites focused around drilling and completions, production and operations, accounting, and data management and analytics.
