Deltek has promoted two employees to more senior roles in its sales function. Brian Daniell becomes Chief Customer Officer. The promotion recognised his thirty years of experience and expertise gained while at Deltek. He was previously Senior VP, Customer Care and part of the senior leadership team. He now takes on responsibility for the Global Consulting team.

The Global Consulting team previously fell under Natasha Engan, who joined the company in 2017 as Senior Vice President of Deltek’s Global Consulting business. She is promoted to Senior Vice President of Global Sales. This role was vacated when Matt Strazza left Deltek to become CEO and President of ConstructConnect, Delteks top new customer acquisition partner for 2020.

The appointment should bring the companies even closer together and will help both in that sector. Both ConstructConnect and Deltek became part of the Roper Technologies portfolio in 2016.

Both Engan and Daniell will report directly to Mike Corkery, President and CEO. Corkery commented, “Deltek is fortunate to have experienced, proven leaders like Natasha and Brian who can pivot with our business so we can continue to deliver as efficiently and effectively as ever. With these changes, we are prepared to build on the great momentum we’ve seen the first half of the year and continue ensuring our customers’ success in 2021 and beyond.”

The last change (though unannounced yet) sees the appointment of Margo Martin as Group Vice President of Customer Success. Her role remains largely unchanged. She was previously Vice President of Customer Success, but she has now been added to the management team.

Enterprise Times: What does this mean

Roper Technologies saw the potential in Strazza as a business leader. His appointment to CEO in a partner company ensures that the relationship will continue. That Deltek chose to promote from within is noteworthy. It should mean that little changes for Deltek and the team continue to function effectively.

The only risk is that by not bringing in new blood from outside the company Deltek risks a lack of innovation. However, with the company growing effectively, Corkery will not want to risk the disruption that it can also bring.
