MILWAUKEE – Brevient Technologies, Inc., in preparation for a planned expansion of its product offerings, and in response to significant growth in its client base and revenues, has added a former banking technology executive as its Chief Operating Officer (COO). Steve Heston, who recently served as National Sales Manager at Metavante Corporation, assumed the role as Brevient’s senior operational executive on March 14, 2005.
Heston brings years of experience from diverse industries to the role. In addition to serving as Brevient’s COO, he’s been appointed a seat on the firm’s Board of Directors.
During nearly five years at Metavante Heston was responsible for sales strategy and execution in a compressing marketplace. His ability to handle complex, long-term strategies while managing day-to-day business will lead Brevient into the next stage of growth, according to Matt Lautz, Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Brevient.
“Brevient has seen solid growth and success as a start-up company since 2001,” stated Lautz. “As we enter the next phase of our evolution, Steve adds key knowledge, vision and focus to build-out our already strong senior leadership team to develop the company and drive new growth.”
“When considering what the next step in my career would be, I looked at over 100 different companies. Brevient stood out in three ways,” stated Heston. “The company possesses a rare mix of leading-edge products, bright and driven people, and a lack of corporate politics. Those elements in combination are pretty special, and you rarely find them is a single company.”
Heston’s years with Metavante Corporation and Fiserv, Inc. as well as general and sales management background in the broadcasting and beverage industries make him a “logical choice to join our senior team as we enter new vertical markets with new products and services,” Lautz said.
