Microsoft Dynamics Gold Partner ArcherPoint Appoints Athena Alliance Founder and CEO Coco Brown to Board of Directors
ATLANTA, GA — November 5, 2019 — ArcherPoint Inc., a Microsoft Dynamics ERP Gold Partner and full-service provider for Dynamics NAV and Dynamics 365 Business Central, is pleased to announce the appointment of Coco Brown, Founder and CEO of The Athena Alliance, to its Board of Directors.
As CEO of Athena, Coco enables senior female leaders to own their value and achieve their true potential. She formed Athena in 2016, focusing on getting more women into board seats. Today, Athena has grown into a community powered by a technology platform, what Athena refers to as “the golf course in the cloud”. Athena offers women access to a community of support for every level of their senior leadership careers.
ArcherPoint’s Board of Directors was created to guide its growth and direction. The recent transition to 100% employee ownership required the company to appoint additional outside board members, which also presented an opportunity to select members with experience in product development, go-to-market strategies, and professional service delivery. With extensive experience in professional service delivery in the technology sector, as well as deep knowledge of board governance, Coco was a natural choice.
“Coco’s knowledge in a similar business was very exciting to us, but we were truly impressed with her approachable nature and willingness to share her knowledge and experience,” said Tammy Fawcett, ArcherPoint’s Director of Professional Services & Customer Service. “Her vast network of business associates has already been a huge benefit to ArcherPoint; we are certain her leadership will be a tremendous benefit to our organization, helping us shape the future of the company as well as our Board as we grow and mature as an organization.”
Prior to Athena, Coco served as President, COO and Board Director of Taos, a prominent in IT Services business serving hundreds of F1000 companies such as Apple, Cisco, ebay, Facebook, and Silicon Valley Bank. She also served on the board of Taos for 12 years, leading the company through massive economic cycles and business model evolution and growth. Coco has served on the boards of Athena Alliance, Taos Mountain Software, Inc., and MentorNet. She served as Nominating Committee Chair for the Grace Hopper - ABIE Technology Leadership Award from 2014 to 2017 and has received numerous awards and visibility in high-profile publications. She is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania.
“I’m looking forward to leveraging my vast career experience in professional services and technology to help ArcherPoint strategically scale and deepen their relationships with clients,” said Coco. “After leading an IT consultancy for more than 15 years, and now leading an organization dedicated to helping women achieve board seats, the time couldn’t be better for me to step onto the board at ArcherPoint and deliver immediate value.”
