Alameda, Calif.—March 27, 2013—PINC Solutions, a yard management and supply chain visibility solutions provider, appointed Matt Yearling Chief Executive Officer of the company. Yearling will lead the overall strategic direction of the company, including day-to-day operations; and is also a member of the board of directors.
“PINC didn’t become the yard management and shipment visibility solution of the top supply chains in the world overnight,” said Aleks Gollu, Chief Technology Officer and Founder of PINC Solutions. “Matt brings the relevant experience, vision, and energy to ensure we will continue to exceed our customers’ expectations.”
Yearling succeeds Alan Park, PINC Solutions Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing, who was named interim CEO last November after Ken Colby asked to step down from the role of CEO for personal reasons.
“Matt came to our attention because of his strong product orientation, proven ability to lead top performing teams and track record in delivering value to customers,” said Tench Coxe, Managing Partner at Sutter Hill Ventures and board member. “He will be a key enabler for PINC’s continued market expansion and growth.”
Yearling has over 25 years of experience in developing and bringing to market world-class ERP, CRM, supply chain, mobile and security business solutions across the global SMB, enterprise, and public sector market segments. Most recently, Yearling led Symantec Corp. as Vice President and General Manager of Encryption Products. He formerly held leadership positions with Sage Inc.; Embarcadero Systems Corp.; and On Demand for Oracle Corp.
“It’s clear that companies are already recognizing the agility, velocity, transparency and efficiency that PINC’s offerings provide,” said Yearling. “We have phenomenal assets and a talented team. My goal is to build upon this strong platform to ensure our customers continue to be armed with the best technology and supply chain solutions in the market.”
