Nintex, the world leader in workflow software, today announced that Eric Johnson has joined the company as chief financial officer. Johnson is the most recent addition to the executive team leading Nintex’s continued global expansion and follows Christian Smith’s appointment as senior vice president of global sales.
“With his global background with private and public technology companies, Eric is a great addition to the Nintex team,” said John Burton, Nintex’s chief executive officer. “He has deep experience in all financial aspects of rapidly growing software firms including on-premise, and cloud delivery business models. Moreover, his domain expertise in social collaboration and workflow is a perfect knowledge fit with Nintex.”
Johnson brings more than 15 years of financial and operational experience to Nintex. He comes to Nintex from Jive Software, where he served as vice president of finance. At Jive, Johnson helped lead the company through its IPO process while maintaining its high growth rate by building a finance and sales operations organization that supported both the IPO and Jive’s continued growth.
Prior to joining Jive, Johnson spent seven years at Serena Software, holding financial and operational leadership positions, including director of finance and accounting for the Americas and Asia Pacific and vice president of worldwide sales operations. Johnson also held finance positions with Sequent Computer Systems, which was acquired by IBM, and with InFocus.
“I’m very excited to start working with such a dynamic team of leaders who are committed to delivering powerful solutions to the market,” said Johnson, chief financial officer for Nintex. “Nintex has a great vision and I’m looking forward to managing its financial operations as the company capitalizes on its success in the workflow space.”
