Contruent has confirmed the addition of Norbert Orth to its board of directors.
Norbert is an experienced c-level executive in construction tech, having led numerous software companies through rapid growth and innovation, including Viewpoint, where he partnered with Bain Capital, culminating in a $1.2bn (c.£970m) acquisition by Trimble in July 2018.
Contruent is a US-based capital project management software solution for large construction projects that aims to empower owners and EPCs to build large construction projects “with precision and speed”.
Commenting on his appointment, CEO and board member Ryan Kubacki said: “M33 and I are thrilled to welcome Norbert to our board.
“Norbert’s proven track record as a construction software executive will provide invaluable experience as we poise for continued growth on a massive scale.”
Norbert joins as the company completes an active first year as part of the M33 Growth portfolio.
In the past 12 months, Contruent has launched an innovative new SaaS offering, grown business sales over 50%, added new leadership team members from Oracle, Google, and Microsoft, and rebranded from ARES PRISM to Contruent.
Commenting on his appointment, Norbert said: “The construction industry continues to further embrace digitisation, presenting significant opportunities for strategic and financial investors.
“Ryan and M33 have put together a world class team, innovative technology, and an inspiring vision to empower the stakeholders in the world’s largest construction projects to build with precision and speed.
“I’m looking forward to working with Ryan and the Contruent team on this journey.”
