We are thrilled to announce that David Rue is now The Concinnity Company’s Chief Revenue Officer. David is a seasoned financial services and stakeholder communications pioneer who has been helping companies navigate capital markets and stakeholder communications with cutting-edge technology for more than thirty years.
David joins us from Bass, Berry & Sims where he served for almost 10 years in a number of leadership roles, including strategy and the development of technology enabled legal solutions. Prior to joining Bass, Berry & Sims, he spent 20 years with global financial communications firm Bowne & Co. He held various senior sales, management and marketing roles in Nashville, Atlanta and New York, including creating new technology tools to advance efficiencies in communications with corporate stakeholders. In addition, he founded an early XBRL-enabled SEC filing software company and launched a software platform to facilitate required SEC reporting of insider securities transactions.
Nancy Falls, our CEO, summed up our excitement in this way:
“Anyone who knows David will realize what a game changer this appointment is to a company like ours. He specializes in building and introducing new technology solutions to the boardroom and c-suite, a uniquely challenging group to reach. David could not be more perfectly suited to our company as we grow. He has a deep understanding of our customers and their needs and an intense devotion to exceptional service.”
And David said this about our mission and our software platform:
“I have witnessed first-hand the power of smart technology to dramatically improve the way organizations function and communicate. Cloud Concinnity® is just such a technology; brilliantly designed to navigate ever-increasing challenges in the way boards, management teams, and investors work together and serve their stakeholders.”
We sat down with David…
to hear even more about how he approaches his work, why he sees now as the perfect time for a tool like Cloud Concinnity®, and what he loves about being part of the Nashville business community.
What do you love about working with leaders in the boardroom & c-suite?
I’ve seen numerous examples of extraordinary success in the leadership of organizations. In those examples the central themes have been strong personal relationships and excellent communication. The opportunity to support and foster success in those relationships through excellence in communication has been the primary source of satisfaction in all the work I’ve done in my career from my days at Bowne to my time at Bass, Berry. Cloud Concinnity® can be a tremendous tool to this end and I can’t wait to share it.
Why do you think now is the right time for a platform like Cloud Concinnity?
The evolution of technology and the continual increase in the demands on c-suite and board members has created an urgent necessity to change the way boards function. Cloud Concinnity® offers the essential elements of access, process, and outcomes, and is distinguished from other solutions in its unique approach to agile and impactful process. There is no other solution like it.
What are you looking forward to about joining the Concinnity team?
Undoubtedly the thing I look forward to most is engaging with the exceptionally talented team at The Concinnity Company and working together to serve our customers with brilliant technology, excellent service, and joy.
What do you love most about living and working in Nashville?
Nashville has always had a strong sense of self. We’ve watched over the years as the city has grown in its unique ways; economically, musically, spiritually, and culturally. The pursuit of excellence in so many facets of the city is palpable and contagious—from hot chicken to country music to technology and healthcare. I think Nashville is the kind of city where, if you look around long enough, you’ll find yourself and you will have enjoyed the search. Also, it still has a little grit to it. Both my cars got stolen last week.
