Hart InterCivic announced today the planned transition of Phillip Braithwaite from the Chief Executive Officer role to Chairman of the Board of Directors. At the same time, Julie Mathis will expand her role and become President and CEO.
Mr. Braithwaite has been with Hart for over 18 years and will continue to lend his experience and leadership in his role as Chairman. Ms. Mathis joined Hart in 2014 as Chief Financial Officer, then expanded her role to include President and will now also become the company’s Chief Executive.
Under the leadership of Mr. Braithwaite and Ms. Mathis, Hart has enjoyed significant growth, nearly doubling the number of customers through sales of Hart’s Verity® Voting system and continuing to set the standard for best-in-class customer satisfaction. Hart remains well positioned for continued growth and market share gains going forward.
“Julie has been a tremendous asset to Hart over these last 5 years.” said Mr. Braithwaite. “Her leadership has driven successes across all company functions. I look forward to supporting Julie in her new role and continuing to participate in Hart’s future growth.”
Ms. Mathis added “I’m excited to have the opportunity to drive more success for our customers and our company and having Phillip’s continued involvement as Chairman adds to the depth and strength of our leadership team.”
