We are proud to announce that our Chief Technology Officer, Derek Adams, is being recognized by Utah Business as a CXO of the Year!

Utah Business Magazine annually recognizes select members of the C-Suite for outstanding achievement. This elite group of executives exemplify what it means to be a company and community leader, setting the bar high for Utah’s growing technology community.

Derek is being recognized alongside CXO’s from companies such as Doterra, Vivint, and Workfront. He is a phenomenal example and driver of BrainStorm’s innovative approach, and we are proud to have him on the team as we continue to become a market leader in the software space, locally and beyond.

As Utah Business wrote:

“The greatest technology in the world is worthless without a market to support it”, says Derek Adams, and it’s his job to help bridge the gap between those who make tech and those who sell it.

“Understanding that the external teams (such as sales and marketing) are just as critical to the success as the engineering that goes into the product is critical”.

In the last few years, BrainStorm has transitioned from a services business to a software company. The change required the company to shift its skillset and the way it thought about doing business. That initial pivot got them into the software game and the shift in attitude helped make them a market leader.

“I was able to get the right people in. We developed the product, and then continually evangelized internally to help make the shift,” Mr. Adams says. “Since that time, we’ve transformed the product into something that is competitively unique in the space. I’ve been able to lead a great group to strategize, plan, and execute a vision to take BrainStorm into an industry leading position.”
