What does Jaret Manuel bring to Aprika in the role?

Jaret says of his appointment: “I am excited to start a new challenge within Mission Control and look forward to working with the team to further develop their already extensive, value-driven partnerships – I’m really excited to not only grow the value of these existing partnerships but shape and develop new opportunities across the Salesforce ecosystem.”

Colin Johnson, Chief Executive Officer of Aprika

Commenting on Jaret’s hire, CEO of Aprika, Colin Johnson, said: “While watching Mission Control double in size and customer base over the past 2 years has truly been rewarding.”

“I’m even more excited by the opportunities that lay ahead of us. We operate in a $7 billion industry and have only really scratched the surface of our partnership potential. Having a professional of Jaret’s ilk on board to formalize and operationalize a cross-departmental strategic approach will really help drive the ambitious growth plans I have for the whole firm.“

While the PSA and Project Management Software vertical has experienced unprecedented growth in the past 12 months, there is uncertainty in the economic climate – meaning the importance of collaborative and mutually beneficial kinships are more critical, now than ever.
