HRchitect, the leader in HR systems strategic consulting and the premier Human Capital Management (HCM) and Talent Management systems consulting firm, recently announced the promotion of Matt Lafata to President of the organization.
Most recently serving as HRchitect’s Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Lafata now oversees the day-to-day operations of HRchitect. He will also continue to act as Chief Sales Officer in the interim.
“Over the last seven years, Matt has proven himself to be an impact player here at HRchitect,” stated Rick Fletcher, Vice President and Founder of HRchitect. “He’s in the middle of just about everything and has been chiefly responsible for an increase in revenue, especially over the last couple of years. He has done a great job of making our name and brand much more visible in the marketplace.”
As part of the transition, Rick Fletcher will stay with the firm as a Vice President, concentrating on corporate strategy and development.
“Matt’s deep and industry-wide respected knowledge of the HCM marketplace, combined with the leadership skills he possesses, made Matt the natural choice to take HRchitect well into the future as the pre-eminent HCM technology consulting firm,” continued Fletcher.
Throughout his career, Lafata has been in leadership positions, including serving as GM & Executive VP of several software companies. He has also run large technical support groups, software development departments, and marketing and sales teams (both internal and external). In addition, Lafata successfully grew and managed a large group of field consultants for years at Timeslips Corporation/Sage.
“Matt has proven himself over the years to assume what is a very critical role at HRchitect,” remarked Dan Katavola, Vice President at HRchitect. “We believe this is the right step to take in order for HRchitect to progress to the next step in our organization as well as shaping the future, growth and prosperity of HRchitect.”
“I am tremendously excited to take on the role of President and lead such a great team and organization into the future,” said Matt. “This industry is a great place to be and with HRchitect’s reputation and client base, we are well poised to extend our leadership role and the sky really is the limit. Hold on tight as this marketplace is going to continue to see a whirlwind of activities from HRchitect!”
