ARI has named Robert Hipp to fill the newly created position of chief technology officer, according to a company press release.
Hipp will provide overall strategic and operational directions for ARI’s software products and services. President and CEO Roy Olivier says the position was created to help ARI meet its 2009 financial goals.
“This position will be responsible for the development and implementation of our long-range strategic objectives,” said Olivier. “We are very fortunate to have a person of Robert’s ability and experience as a new member of the company’s executive leadership team. I am confident that Robert’s experience, vision and understanding of the markets we serve will help us reach our goals.”
Hipp joined ARI in January 2007 as part of ARI’s acquisition of OC-Net where he had been chief executive officer and president.
