Financial service advisor Hearsay Systems has named Mike Boese its new CEO. Mr. Boese succeeds co-founder Clara Shih, who will transition to an Executive Chairperson position on the board of directors.
“After 11 years of building Hearsay and serving as CEO, the time has come for me to pass the torch. The next decade for Hearsay requires a different leader than the last, and we are very fortunate to have Mike here as that leader,” said Ms. Shih.
Mr. Boese brings more than 25 years of leadership experience from world-leading software companies such as Taleo, SAP, PeopleSoft and Oracle. He was co-founder and CEO of Plantt, before joining Hearsay as COO earlier in 2020.
“I’m thrilled to lead Hearsay into our next chapter, building on the incredible work Clara has done to create this market and build products and a customer base that is second to none,” said Mr Boese. “The pandemic has underscored the critical importance of authentic, last-mile engagement. We are doubling down on this unprecedented market opportunity to help every financial firm modernize its field operations and customer experience.”
