Everbridge appoints new chief executive officer

Executive recruitment firm True Search has placed David Meredith as chief executive officer and member of the board of directors of Everbridge Inc. Mr. Meredith brings over 25 years of executive leadership experience across leading multi-billion-dollar cloud managed services providers and software companies. He most recently served as CEO at Rackspace. He succeeds long-time CEO Jaime Ellertson who is transitioning to the role of executive chairman of the Everbridge board.

“I am thrilled to welcome David as the new CEO of Everbridge,” said Mr. Ellertson. “David has an extensive background scaling category-leading software-as-a-service and infrastructure providers, demonstrating a strong record of corporate growth, customer satisfaction and employee engagement. Last June, we announced our intent to identify and retain an executive who could lead our business through the next stage of growth to $1 billion in annual revenue, and I am confident that David’s experience and proven leadership skills make him the perfect choice for this role.”
