Targetprocess appoints former Rally Software executive

Targetprocess, provider of a visual management platform for agile teams and organisations, has appointed Richard Leavitt, a longtime agile software industry veteran and past executive at Rally Software, to its board of directors.

Founded in 2004, Targetprocess provides an agile management platform that enables its customers to visualise work across the organisation, identify bottlenecks and make informed decisions about what to prioritize in the business.

Leavitt brings more than 20 years’ of experience building B2B software companies, including AlchemyAPI, which was acquired by IBM Watson; Rally Software, which had its IPO in 2013 on the NYSE and was later acquired by CA Technologies and Insightful Corporation, which was acquired by TIBCO.

In his prior roles, Leavitt has led product management and marketing, and driven sales organisations, partner networks and go-to-market efforts for a string of venture-backed software startups.

“Richard is an experienced leader in business management and a trusted expert in how companies build and manage software products,” comments Andrey Mihailenko, co-founder of Targetprocess.

“We look forward to his insights, and will lean on his knowledge in sales, marketing and technology as we continue to scale.”

Targetprocess also raised US$5million Series A in May 2018, in part to speed its growth of sales, marketing and customer support in North America.
