New division under Johnson’s leadership furthers Avionté’s mission to maximize customer return on investment in technology.
[Bloomington, Minn – February 7, 2023] – Avionté, a leader in enterprise staffing and recruiting software solutions, has announced the formation of a new Professional Services division dedicated to helping customers realize the full potential of their technology investments. The Professional Services team will serve as a post-sale option through an embedded service agreement or on a time and materials basis.
“Our Professional Services team will fill a critical unmet need keenly felt by our customers,” said Rishabh Mehrotra, CEO of Avionté. “As the leading provider of End-to-End staffing and 24/7 Mobile Talent Platforms, our customers are asking for post-implementation advice on leading practices to deploy mobile talent technology, with an eye towards talent retention, enhanced recruiter efficiency, and margin improvement.”
To lead this team, Avionté is pleased to welcome Chris Johnson as Vice President of Professional Services. Johnson brings more than two decades of in-depth knowledge and experience in SaaS delivery, HR technology consulting, and staffing operations. Throughout his career Chris has been the recipient of several technology industry awards and was featured in Contingent Workforce Weekly, The Staffing Show, Staffing Stream, and Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA). Prior to Avionté, Johnson led the Outsourcing Industry Strategy practice for Checkr. He’s also held positions at Accenture, IBM, and The Adecco Group.
“Chris embodies a strong understanding of where the industry is headed and how tech is transforming the world of work,” noted Mehrotra. “His leadership will be instrumental in driving our Professional Services division. Chris has dedicated his career to building a strategic transformation practice that will serve as a footprint to help our customers further their goals.”
Alongside his team, Johnson will work in concert with Avionté sales, implementation, support, and client management to offer services focused on Leading Practices, Industry Trends, Digital Experience, Process Optimization, and Organizational Adoption.
“What we’re offering is Transformation as a Service,” said Johnson. “It’s not a one-time event, it’s a culture of caring, of walking every day in the customer’s shoes, and helping them realize their goals. It’s my team’s job to live around that corner and to be a trusted partner and advisor to our customers.”
