WorkWave, a New Jersey-based provider of SaaS software solutions for the field service business, announced on Tuesday that Kevin Kemmerer has been appointed CEO in an effort to accelerate its business growth.

Kemmerer joins WorkWave after serving as CEO at Brightly Software, an enterprise asset management company that was acquired by Siemens in 2022.

“WorkWave’s journey over the last three years has been very impressive, quadrupling the company in size while expanding margins and acquiring multiple industry-leading companies,” said Jesper Andersen, executive chairman of the board at WorkWave. 

“We strongly believe in the company and the market opportunity, and we feel Kevin’s expertise, leadership and passion will enable WorkWave to continue to accelerate growth and serve its customers with the best software and services available,” he added.

Kemmerer has more than 30 years of software experience, leading and growing a wide range of high-quality software businesses throughout his career. WorkWave said in a June 6 news release that Kemmerer has sat on numerous boards of directors, held positions within software consultancy organizations and has extensive experience working with private equity firms. 

“I am honored to be joining a company that has so much potential to bring value to its customers and the overall markets it serves,” Kemmerer said. 

“WorkWave excels in creating tailored solutions for specific verticals while also leveraging common service components across different sectors — a pioneering approach in our industry,” he added. “The passion and expertise of the WorkWave team have truly impressed me, and I am confident that together, we can continue to realize our vision and drive success for our customers and the industries we serve.”

Kemmerer will take over the top spot from David F. Giannetto, who will remain in an advisory role to support this transition.
