Bridgeforce Board of Directors makes executive changes to equally focus efforts on consulting arm and software branch of the company.

Chadds Ford PA, April 2020 – Bridgeforce, a leading financial services consultancy, today announced that its Board of Directors has appointed company Co-Founder and Managing Partner, John Sanders as Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately. Matt Scarborough, current Chief Executive Officer for both entities, will become a fully dedicated CEO to Bridgeforce Data Quality Solutions.  Brian Reiss, who will be retiring from his full-time duties as President after almost 20 years of service, will serve as Board Chairman.

Bridgeforce has identified the Bridgeforce Data Quality Solutions business as an area of great opportunity, and as such, the Board slated Matt as the right leader to capitalize on this potential. By leading this charge, Matt will drive the business toward rapid growth.

“I’m very proud of our existing product, and our development pipeline expands upon that foundation to help clients with additional data types and leveraging their data for actionable insights,” said Matt.  “I see enormous opportunity to help our clients navigate the current crisis and support risk management for the long term.”

John Sanders will continue to ensure excellent client delivery for Bridgeforce. As co-founder 20 years ago and having served as COO and CFO of the company in years past, John has the insight, vision and unbridled enthusiasm to lead the consulting business to great heights in his new role as Chief Executive Officer.

“I’m honored and excited by the opportunity to work in this capacity with such a terrific group of people,” said John. “Bridgeforce was founded on the premise that our people are the difference, bringing hands-on real-world experience to solve problems and drive real results. The ability to do so could not be more relevant today than it was when we started 20 years ago.”

John further emphasized that our unwavering dedication to client success will remain the standard with which we measure our success, along with the business value we deliver.

Brian Reiss has consistently delivered high-quality results to clients and his contributions to the company will remain unchanged as he transitions from his role as President to Board Chairman.  “It’s a privilege to be serving Bridgeforce in such a meaningful way as Chairman,” said Brian. “I intend to remain active and engaged at a strategic level with our businesses to position Bridgeforce for the next 20 years of success.”

The Bridgeforce Board has made these changes to reflect the company’s strategic growth goals and enduring mission to support clients throughout the financial services industry to solve pressing challenges and capitalize on new and emerging activities.
