Sopris Capital Appoints Bud Rosenthal as New CEO of Firepoint Solutions

DENVER, Oct. 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Firepoint Solutions, the Sopris backed CRM and lead generation system for residential real estate agents, recently announced that Bud Rosenthal was selected by the board of directors at Firepoint and Sopris Capital as the new chief executive officer of Firepoint Solutions effective immediately. Rosenthal has over 20 years of expertise in leading successful ventures and establishing new technology companies. Rosenthal is stepping into the chief executive officer position as the current CEO, Bill Horne, transitions into another position with Sopris Capital.

"We are delighted Bud chose to join Firepoint and very confident he will take Firepoint to the next level," said Horne. "His experience and former leadership positions in the technology industry, specifically tech start-ups, is exactly what we needed to continue fueling our rapid growth." Continued Horne, "Bud is passionate about the company, our people, our clients and the industry and will catapult the company even further in delivering the best platform of its kind."

Bud Rosenthal has spent the last six years at AOL, one of the leading online global brand companies, where he joined as the Senior Vice President of Paid Services, and quickly climbed to President and Corporate Officer of AOL Inc. His leadership helped grow AOL's new subscription products into a multi-million-dollar business adding several millions of new paid subscribers. Prior to joining AOL, Rosenthal served as the President and CEO of TurnHere, a venture-backd tech company where he increased revenue more than fivefold over the course of his tenure and grew clients by 500%. Before that, he was CEO of WorkMetro, a startup online job board. He holds an MBA from The Wharton School of Business with a dual focus in Entrepreneurial Management and Strategic Planning.

"I'm thrilled to be joining the Firepoint team," said Rosenthal. "Firepoint has a set of amazingly talented people and combining that with the truly unique product that Firepoint offers, I believe this company is positioned to remain a leader in the real estate tech industry and will continue to gain a lot of momentum in the market. I'm honored to be working alongside a great leadership team and group of investors and I am very excited to help drive Firepoint's continued disruption of the real estate tech industry."

Having a full-time chief executive officer is an exciting change for Firepoint, who historically operated under leadership that was shared between multiple ventures of Sopris Capital.

"I would like to reiterate my personal thanks to Bill Horne, who has been our interim CEO, for his guidance, oversight, and significant contributions that he made during a challenging period," stated Gabe Cordova. "As a founder and someone who's been with Firepoint from the very beginning, it's truly amazing to see how much we've grown in such a short time. We have been extremely lucky to have had such talented leadership and I can only see Bud enriching that legacy and further influencing our momentum for growth."
