DENVER -- Former Colorado Technology Association president and CEO Steve Foster has joined Denver-based crisis response software company, Incident Response Technologies, Inc. (IRT), as a member of its executive management team.
As a former police officer and entrepreneur in the high-tech sector, Foster’s proven record of success will guide IRT as it continues its rapid growth, IRT said.
IRT’s products, Rhodium Incident Management Suite and RhodiumSE Special Event Management, are utilized by hundreds of public safety and corporate security agencies in 40 U.S. states and internationally.
IRT is a current client company of Innosphere, the Fort Collins-based incubator for high-tech scaleup companies.
“Steve’s superior business development and sales operations expertise will further bolster IRT’s leadership in incident management and command and control solutions,” said Joey Davis, principal of the Innosphere Fund.
Foster served the Aurora community as a police officer for nearly a decade before co-founding software companies that continue to provide compliance technologies utilized by major corporations.
Foster currently serves on a variety of boards, including: board chair of the Aurora Police Foundation; board member of the Colorado Technology Association; advisory board member of Convercent, a company he co-founded; and board member of Innosphere.
“Steve’s proven success in user-driven development and firsthand knowledge of the needs of public safety professionals is a perfect alignment,” said Jarret Winkelman, president of Incident Response Technologies.
“We’re excited to have his customer-focused leadership to shape our continued growth and product enhancements.”
“Public safety agencies need technology solutions that provide information more rapidly,” said Foster. “We give a voice to our customers on the ground, listen to their needs, and drive our technology platform to ensure they have all the right tools the moment they need them most.
“We’re building relationships at a key time in the public safety and emergency management sectors.”
IRT achieved record sales through the first two quarters of 2018 with year-over-year bookings growing 125%.
