DENVER -- Plutoshift, a leader in automated performance monitoring for industrial workflow, today announced veteran technology executive John Hoholik is moving from a strategic consulting role to chief operating officer.
Hoholik most recently served as a consultant for Plutoshift and played a pivotal role in securing the startup’s $8 million Series A funding round.
Hoholik has a record of success in senior positions, including CMO and senior VP of global solutions at Teletech and executive VP and partner at Digitas.
As chief engagement and solutions officer at ACCENT Marketing -- an MDC Partners Company -- Hoholik developed and executed a customer engagement management (CEM) go-to-market growth strategy and delivery model that eventually helped sell it to a larger business process outsourcing company.
Hoholik also brings experience with supporting startups in new business generation, team building, talent, go-to-market messaging and fundraising.
In his COO role, Hoholik will drive Plutoshift’s business development, customer success, and company operations. He will continue to engage with current and new customers as well as play a vital role within Plutoshift’s leadership team in delivering the company’s GROUNDED AI framework.
This unique framework provides an automated performance monitoring platform designed to enhance the role of operators and employees, enabling them to make operational decisions and changing the way industrial work gets done by teams.
“We’re very excited to have John transition into a more permanent leadership role as he has been a major contributor to our success,” said Prateek Joshi, founder and CEO of Plutoshift.
“His record of accomplishment in business development and his unique ability to forge meaningful relationships with our customers and partners has proven to be invaluable in bringing our solution to market.”
The company said it is initially focusing its platform on manufacturers, allowing operators to monitor the performance of critical processes related to water, energy, chemicals, and labor in an automated way.
