WorkWave appoints new CEO to lead firm into next stages of growth 

WorkWave, the Holmdel-based provider of Software-as-a-Service solutions, on Wednesday announced it appointed Kevin Kemmerer as CEO, in an effort to accelerate its business growth and focus on delivering best-in-class solutions to its customers and the industries it serves.

Kemmerer joins WorkWave on the heels of his role as CEO at Brightly Software, an enterprise asset management company, which was acquired by Siemens in 2022. He steps into the role following David Giannetto, who will remain in an advisory role, using his deep knowledge and experience across field service to support this transition.

“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,” Jesper Andersen, executive chairman of the board at WorkWave, said. “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.”

Kemmerer has over 30 years of experience in software and has been instrumental in leading and growing a broad range of high-quality software businesses throughout his career. He 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. 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.”
