Ruby Receptionists Welcomes Addition of CMO

David De Rego Inaugurates Top Marketing Role

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - April 20, 2016) -  Ruby Receptionists, the voice of small businesses across the nation, announced today that David De Rego has joined the company as its first Chief Marketing Officer. David brings more than 30 years of experience growing service and technology companies, having held leadership roles in marketing at Sage Software, Viewpoint Construction Software, and most recently as the SVP, Marketing & Sales of CSQUIRE Inc.

A seasoned marketing veteran, David was instrumental in positioning Viewpoint Construction Software as a construction technology leader, creating strong brand awareness and preference, and generating demand for Viewpoint Construction Software solutions in North America, EMEA, and Australia. His talent for harnessing the power of a brand and extending it to the outside world is both what attracted David to Ruby, and Ruby to David.

"We're thrilled to have a seasoned professional like David take on this new role within Ruby," said CEO and Founder, Jill Nelson. "David has grown two companies from Ruby's size to more than 100 million in revenue while in the CMO seat, making him the ideal hire to continue our track record of tremendous growth."

And quite the track record it is. After 11 years of double-digit growth, Updata Partners acquired the majority share of the company in late 2014. The outside investment has encouraged Ruby's current expansion, including the addition of a third location and the hiring of key leadership positions. David seeks to build on this growth, further expanding the sales funnel and advancing Ruby's brand, positioning, and awareness among the more than 26 million small businesses nationwide.

"It's been fun to watch Ruby's growth over the recent years and I'm thrilled to be joining such a fine organization and group of talented professionals," comments David. "Ruby's advanced technology platform and amazing culture is second to none and I'm honored and excited to be a part of it all."
