WASHINGTON, DC – Updata Partners, a leading technology-focused growth equity firm, is pleased to announce that John Burton will join portfolio company Nintex Software as Chief Executive Officer. Nintex is the world’s leading workflow company, delivering innovative software and cloud services that empower organizations to automate business processes quickly and easily. Updata invested in Nintex in April 2013 with the goal of expanding the Company’s strong performance and customer success in its home country of Australia to the global marketplace. Burton’s assumption of the CEO role at Nintex is a key milestone in the Company’s evolution. Commensurate with his new role, Burton will become an Operating Partner at Updata Partners and will continue to be actively involved with the firm.
“John has an extensive track record of leading high-growth software companies from start-ups to multinational corporations, and we are delighted that he has stepped up to take the helm at Nintex,” said Carter Griffin, Updata General Partner.
Earlier in his career, John was with Legent Corporation, an international, publicly-traded enterprise software company, as president, COO and CEO, and which was sold to Computer Associates. Prior to Legent, John co-founded Business Software Technology Inc. (BST), a successful VC-backed firm acquired by Legent, where he served as officer, COO and director. John also served as executive chairman of Numara, an Updata portfolio company, which was acquired by BMC in 2012.
“John’s new role and Nintex’s strong performance validate our strategy of investing in high growth technology businesses, and doing what it takes to ensure they are enormously successful,” added James Socas, General Partner. “With John now leading the charge, our expectations for Nintex are even higher.”
