As RedTeam continues to grow its customer base and expand its footprint in the construction software space, Andy West’s goal is to further establish the culture that has been built at RedTeam as well as continue to advance product development while enhancing the customer experience.
“I’m excited to join this fast-growing company in an industry that is ripe for software adoption,” West said. “I believe my years of technology experience and business operations knowledge will be an asset for continuing to expand RedTeam’s reach in the industry, and we’ll be looking for new ways to improve our product while enriching RedTeam’s already best-in-class customer experience.”
West brings 25 years of experience in software technology to the team, more than 15 of which have been spent focused on customer and service operations for SaaS and on premise. Prior to joining RedTeam, West served as Vice President of Global Customer Services at Sage, a market leader in accounting software for small and mid-sized businesses with specializations for the construction industry, and senior operations manager at Symantec, a leading global IT security provider that services millions of customers. West worked at Sage when it announced a strategic partnership with RedTeam in 2019 to provide end-to-end solutions for every aspect of a business within the construction and real estate industries. In his past roles, West developed expertise in business development and growth, as well as experience in building strong internal employee networks on a global scale.
“Andy is a great addition to RedTeam, and we believe his skills will be valuable as we continue to improve our product and grow in the industry,” said RedTeam CEO Michael Wright. “With more than 100,000 users already using RedTeam, we’re looking to accelerate our growth and add more members to our team. West’s experience in managing global teams and his exceptional track record of strong customer relationships will be an asset in helping manage our internal operations and doubling down on our commitment to providing impeccable customer service.”
RedTeam was built by construction professionals for construction professionals to provide end-to-end visibility through exceptional collaboration, something that West finds valuable when leading teams. His addition to the team comes on the heels of RedTeam’s recent acquisition of Fieldlens and the enhancements that have been made to TeamPlayer.
RedTeam’s construction management platform is a model example of the newest class of hyper-vertical enterprise applications, purpose-built to facilitate collaborative workflows in the cloud. RedTeam and other such solutions are shaking up industries as they displace manual workflows and legacy, back-office software applications. Having been initially developed by a commercial general contractor for its own use, RedTeam is truly a product built out of need for a better way to manage construction.
In 2020, RedTeam made the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing companies, having achieved a three-year compound annual growth rate of 160 percent.
