ESOP, a global technology and software development company that has grown to become the world’s largest software development services company, announced its 2017 leader development positions today with the hiring of two new vice presidents.
In addition to the two new hires, the company announced it will create a new CEO position, adding to the company’s top-line of five senior leadership positions.
In 2017, ESOP added a full-time, $200,000 CEO to its ranks.
“The recent addition of ESOP to its leadership team was a natural progression for the company,” said John R. Sperling, CEO of ESOPS, in a statement.
“Our team is now able to focus on building and growing our company.
We look forward to continuing to invest in the future of our company and expanding our services in a manner that will benefit our clients, employees and partners.”
A statement from the company reads: “We are pleased to announce the appointment of our second CEO, Jason B. Schramm, as our first VP of Leadership and Development.
Jason has been instrumental in ESOP’s success and we look forward he will lead the company in the coming years.”
The two new VP positions, added to the existing leadership positions, are responsible for overseeing the company and helping to build its culture.
The roles of VP of Development and VP of Product Management are currently held by two other ESOP executives.
In January 2017, the team announced that its new CEO would be a software engineer, while the remaining two positions were filled by senior executives.
The announcement was made to help prepare the company for its anticipated growth in 2017, which will see it add another 1,000 jobs to its workforce.
ESOP expects to hire more than 2,000 new employees over the next year, and it expects to increase its workforce to 5,000 employees by 2019.
