CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Dec 18, 2013) - Fruition Partners, the leading provider of technology-enabled services for the Service Management sector, is on pace to close its most successful year on record fueled by more than 450 new customer engagements and expansion into international markets. Fruition Partners' impressive year is in lockstep with the market's demand for the cloud, a $131 billion industry this year according to research firm Gartner Inc.
Fruition Partners' commitment to creating new, custom solutions that leverage and integrate with the ServiceNow® platform puts the company in an ideal position to tap this tremendous market opportunity. As enterprises embrace the cloud for Service Management they are looking to cloud-service providers like Fruition Partners to help them reach their organizational goals. In 2013, organizations like Whirlpool, Virteva and VMware turned to Fruition Partners to attain sustainable success throughout the entire ITSM process. Offering more services, more on-the-job experience (200+ cloud experts on staff and 400+ ServiceNow Implementations) and more custom development expertise (900+ ServiceNow completed projects) than any other ServiceNow partner in the world, Fruition Partners was awarded Preferred Services Partner by the ServiceNow Global Services Partner Program in May 2013.
To continue to meet this growth and provide a streamlined client experience, Fruition Partners restructured in 2013, introducing focused teams for Account Management, Program Delivery and Shared Delivery Services. The company's executive leadership team expanded with several strategic hires including Bill Carroll as Vice President of Shared Services; J.P. Bartley as General Counsel; Shane Carlson as Principle Consultant for Global Programs; Salvatore Como as Senior Vice President of Global Delivery; Jon Borg-Breen, Vice President of Operations; Larry Fleischman, Director of Marketing; and Dave Chandler as CFO. Overall, Fruition Partners hired 80 employees in 2013, increasing its headcount by 60 percent and opened a new office in San Jose, Calif.
"It's been a remarkable year for Fruition Partners and a great way to celebrate the firm's decade-long commitment to bringing ITIL and service management best practices to cloud environments," said Marc Talluto, CEO and Co-Founder of Fruition Partners. "Looking ahead to 2014, Fruition Partners is excited to bring the market even more ServiceNow-centric capabilities including premium-level managed services, IT Transformation process consulting and more business service management accelerators. Additionally, our new SIAM approach enables consistent outsourced service relationship management beyond IT to other functional areas in the enterprise."
