Philadelphia and Montreal, August 15, 2022 - Equisoft, a leading global digital solutions provider to the financial industry, is proud to announce the appointment of David Shively as Chief Operating Officer.

An accomplished executive with over 30 years of experience in managing on-premises and SaaS software solutions across global markets, David will be mainly responsible for overseeing Equisoft’s global operations to continue its strategic expansion.

“Steeve has made an immense contribution to Equisoft over the past 20 years, and we would like to thank him and wish him a healthy and happy retirement,” said Equisoft’s CEO Luis Romero. “With David’s proven track-record in driving superior operational efficiencies, achieving business growth, and delivering mission critical solutions to diverse markets such as Commercial Heath Insurance, Life & Annuity Insurance, and Property & Casualty Insurance, we are more than confident that our new COO will be equally successful in helping Equisoft further strengthen and expand its global presence.”

Prior to joining Equisoft, David held several executive positions with reputed technology companies such as Oracle, CGI, Accenture, Wyde Corporation, and more recently as Vice President, Life & Annuity Platforms Business at EXL, where he was responsible for leading cross-functional teams supporting multiple SaaS and on-premises software platforms.
