DENVER, Aug. 29, 2018
AppIt Ventures, a Denver-based custom software development company that builds cutting-edge, high-quality technology, today announced it has named Amanda Moriuchi as chief executive officer. Moriuchi will assume day-to-day leadership of the company to help continue strong growth.
“I could not be more excited to tackle the challenges my new role will pose and for the future of the company,” said Moriuchi. “We have an incredibly talented team focused on transforming business for our clients, continuing to innovate and unlocking future growth opportunities. I am honored to serve as AppIt’s new CEO.”
Moriuchi joined AppIt in 2017 as vice president of sales, leading the company’s sales team and mapping out the company’s seven-year sales strategy. Moriuchi helped the company match its 2017 sales in the first six months of 2018 and tripled the team size in just three months along with making positive changes to the company’s benefits and pay package.
Prior to joining AppIt, Moriuchi founded and organized the successful meetup, Denver Women in Tech. With more than 10 years of experience in tech, she has also worked for various Denver-area technology startups as well as Sandler Training, Amadeus Consulting and Pulte Homes Corporation in various sales and business development roles. Moriuchi attended the University of Colorado’s Leeds School of Business and earned her bachelor’s degree in business administration.
Former CEO and founder Rob Carpenter has stepped down and will transition out of his leadership role, but he will remain with AppIt with the title of founder. As a part of the transition, Moriuchi recruited and hired AppIt’s executive leadership team, including adding industry leaders Chris Taylor (chief marketing officer) and Jim Maggio (chief information officer).
“I am incredibly proud of everything our team has been able to accomplish in the past six years and certain Amanda is the right professional to lead the next phase of our growth,” said Carpenter. “As the world moves into an increasingly digital space, custom software development has never been more important in this digital transformation.”
