CIENCE Appoints Michael Gear New CEO


CIENCE announced Michael Gear has been appointed the new CEO of the company. An experienced business leader, Gear will assume CEO responsibilities effective immediately while August Keating becomes President and COO.

The move marks an inflection point in CIENCE’s growth as the company aggressively expands its unique software (CIENCE GO Platform) and services by offering the first-ever operating system as a service (OSaaS) delivery model combining technology, people, and methodologies that have been campaign battle-tested for five years.

"We’ve found the right blend of experience and deep sales strategy to lead us into an exciting future,” said Thomas Cornelius, CIENCE Chairman. “Michael is a proven winner at generating exceptional SaaS returns, as both an operator as well as a vendor, leading businesses into the subscription economy successfully.”
