Clearwater Analytics Significantly Expands Sales Team
Company aggressively recruiting to capitalize on market opportunity.
Clearwater Analytics®, a Boise-based provider of web-based investment portfolio accounting and reporting, has made key additions to its sales team during the past six months, doubling the team’s total size since January 1, 2011. Clearwater plans to increase its sales force an additional 50% by year end.
Founded in 2004, Clearwater has experienced explosive growth and currently reports on over $650 billion in assets. Much of the recent growth in assets has been in the insurance market where the accounting and investment teams are looking for a better solution that integrates their reporting functions. Ultimately, integrated accounting and reporting solutions improve accuracy, efficiency and transparency. “Demand for Clearwater’s accounting and reporting solution continues to validate the quality of our offering,” said Dan Pierce, Director of Sales for Clearwater Analytics.
Clearwater’s new Sales appointments include:

Mitten has extensive experience in software sales and relationship management, including tenures at Microsoft and ProClarity.

“We will continue pursuing opportunities to expand our market share among treasuries in the corporate cash space, while also taking advantage of the tremendous growth potential in the insurance market,” added Pierce. “Given Clearwater’s impressive, organic growth, its high customer satisfaction and retention rates, and the increasing demand for an integrated investment portfolio accounting and reporting solution, Clearwater is an increasingly popular solution for insurers, and an employer of choice.”
