WorkWave cloud software company chooses new CEO

WorkWave, a Holmdel-based provider of cloud software solutions for business, has named a new CEO, it announced Tuesday.

David F. Giannetto, who has been chief operating officer of the company for the past eight months, has been promoted to CEO, replacing Marne Martin — who will focus on her role with WorkWave’s parent, IFS.

“I have been truly impressed by the talent of our employees and their passion to help our hardworking customers succeed in their highly diverse and highly competitive industries,” Giannetto said in a prepared statement. “I could not be more proud to lead this group, and appreciative for the trust that Marne Martin and (IFS CEO) Darren Roos have placed in me. As CEO of WorkWave, I am committed to empowering both our customers and our employees to reach their full potentials.”

In his new role, Giannetto will take advantage of his customer relationships to deliver powerful and forward-looking solutions for them, elevate the company’s position in the service industry and propel it to a next level of growth, WorkWave said in a news release.

Martin, meanwhile, will fully dedicate her time to the IFS Service Management Business Unit, where she is president, as well as other corporate initiatives.

“David’s extensive experience in the service industry has allowed him to really immerse himself into the WorkWave products, customers and company culture,” she said in a statement. “I am pleased that David will be at the helm of WorkWave, a critical part of the IFS family. We look forward to all of the exciting things he has planned for the company and its customers.”
