ATLANTA: VoApps, a technology company that provides innovative voicemail solutions to help businesses reach mobile contacts with consideration and compliance, announced that its board of directors has appointed industry veteran John Fasano as CEO. Fasano was most recently chief financial officer at fintech startup Gro Solutions, which was acquired in late 2018 by Q2 Holdings.
VoApps offers patented solutions that optimize collections and call center efficiency. DirectDrop Voicemail is the company's flagship service that delivers a voice message directly to the consumer's voicemail server without calling their phone. Over 200 million messages have been delivered to mobile users through its technology.
As CFO at GRO Solutions, Fasano was responsible for all aspects of finance, accounting, compliance and HR for the company. He offers over 20 years of senior-level management experience. Prior to joining Gro, he was CFO at ControlScan and Firstview, senior vice president of Finance at Elavon and also spent seven years at Ernst & Young. He holds a bachelor's degree in Accounting from California Lutheran University. Fasano's professional affiliations include the Atlanta CEO Council and the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG).
"We're very excited to welcome John to our team," said Todd Santa Maria, vice president of Client Services at VoApps. "His proven ability to help rapidly grow companies comes at a great time for us, as our technology is driving outstanding business results for our clients and putting us on the radar of more and more companies."
"I'm honored to be named CEO and to lead VoApps in its continued growth," said Fasano. "It's a privilege to be part of an organization that delivers innovative solutions to the best customers and backs its offerings with high-quality services and support. VoApps has significant opportunities ahead and to seize them, we must stay focused, move fast and continue to transform."
VoApps was selected to the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing private companies in America in 2018 and was recognized by the Atlanta Business Chronicle as one of the fastest growing private companies in the Atlanta metropolitan area in 2017. VoApps was incubated at Georgia Tech's Advanced Technology Development Center (ATDC).
