On May 22nd Swiftpage has entered into a relationship with SFW Capital Partners, a private investment firm out of New York that specializes in investing in and supporting the growth and development of information management and workflow solutions with a particular focus on the SMB sector. SFW has recapitalized Swiftpage with the purpose of supporting our growth going forward.
Investing for Growth
So what does that mean for you? For all of Swiftpage Nation, employees, partners and customers, it continues to be business as usual. The real change is that we have transitioned Swiftpage’s ownership to a new growth minded partner to support us through our growth era!!
SFW’s principals have supported the growth and development of some of the most successful and well-regarded analytical information, data network and workflow management companies, including DaySmart Software, Gerson Lehrman Group (GLG), AGDATA, MD Buyline, Keypoint Intelligence, Telephia and IAG Research. With SFW’s strategic support and resources, Swiftpage plans to make significant investments to expand its product portfolio, enhance sales and marketing capabilities, and meaningfully accelerate growth.
Board of Directors
There are no changes to the Executive or Management Teams. However, in light of this investor transition we will be reconfiguring our Board of Directors. Bob Ogdon will no longer be the Chairman of the Board and will no longer be part of the day to day business going forward. He will, however, still be a shareholder in Swiftpage and will always be a Swiftie! The rest of our Board of Directors will be stepping down and we will be creating a new Board.
Omair Sarwar, a Principal at SFW who will be joining the Swiftpage Board of Directors stated “Swiftpage exhibits the key characteristics that we look for in our investments within the information management and workflow solutions sectors: mission-critical products, large addressable markets, and a potential to unlock meaningful growth through a range of strategic and operational initiatives.”
Message from John Oeshle
"This is a huge milestone for us. If you think that just a little over five years ago, we acquired the Act! product, and have come such a long way! They transformed the Act! product from a closed desktop product to the open cloud enabled platform you sell today. And with SFW, our new supportive partner, by our side, we are primed with a ton of momentum to enter into an era of growth where we will continue to innovate and find ways to offer you, and our collective customers, more value.
