Crestwood Associates (a leading Microsoft Dynamics and Acumatica VAR) is shaking up their leadership, leaving them poised for growth.
SCHAUMBURG, Ill. February 12, 2021 — Among a flurry of new hires, the top of the organizational chart of Crestwood Associates is getting a makeover, as well. Most notably, a new CRO and COO. John Gabrys (formerly COO) will be taking over as Chief Revenue Officer, and Bryan Banner (former Practice Director) will be stepping into the Chief Operating Officer role.
“Bryan and John have been an integral part of the Crestwood team for many years. Their reputation in the industry is outstanding and they are respected by all within our organization. We remain well positioned for continued outstanding support of our clients’ mission and this cannot happen without their hard work, dedication and manic focus on the end result.” Tim Thompson (CEO) Crestwood Associates has always aimed to innovate in the midmarket ERP VAR space, and this move is a continuation of that goal. As CRO, Gabrys provides a strategic vision for organizational growth, and will focus his efforts solely on pursuing new technologies to complement Crestwood’s existing offerings. As with most things the company does, this transition was done with Crestwood’s clients in mind. More resources will now be dedicated to providing the industry’s best customer service and solving our client’s most complex problems.
To fill the large shoes left by Gabrys, a worthy successor is being shifted to COO, Bryan Banner. Banner has decades of experience in professional services, making him the logical choice. Crestwood Associates has always been, and will continue to be, a services-based business. This shift will not affect the timing of any ongoing projects or initiatives – the biggest changes will be adding additional staff to support the expanding business.
