JMI Equity prides itself on its ability to identify leading, high-growth software companies and the talented and diverse executives with whom we can partner to drive additional growth and value. Our partnership with proven management teams is integral to the success of our investment strategy.

Recently, The Software Report released its 2019 edition of The Top 50 Women Leaders in SaaS. The ranking recognizes the most accomplished women in the software as a service (SaaS) industry and their companies, which have created environments that empower women and allow them to excel.

We are extremely proud that three executives from our portfolio companies have been recognized as among The Software Report’s top 50 women leaders. Rae Shanahan, Chief Strategy Officer at Businesssolver; Aundreia Heisey, Regional Vice President at Seismic; and Andrea Pitts, Vice President, Strategic Alliances and Sales at Arena Solutions are important members of the leadership teams driving growth and creating value for our investments. They also serve as key contributors to their respective companies’ cultures of championing diversity, recognizing talent and spurring innovation.

Proven leadership has always been critically important to our success, and Rae, Aundreia and Andrea embody the very best qualities of our management team partners – positive impact, strong character and effective leadership. They serve as a testament to the power of diversity at high-growth software businesses and we are pleased to be partnering with them and their leadership colleagues.

We congratulate each of them for this well-deserved recognition. We look forward to their continued contributions to the success of our investments in Businesssolver, Seismic and Arena Solutions.
