ESG and EHS software provider Emex announced today two new senior hires to its global leadership team, as part of a new growth strategy aimed at disrupting the sustainability space in 2022. Emex has appointed Rich Waller as Chief Revenue Officer and Hugh Allspaugh as Chief Marketing Oficer.
Both Waller and Allspaugh will report to Richard Wall, global CEO and Co-founder at Emex. Waller, said:
“In Rich and Hugh, we have two exciting and experienced additions to our growing leadership team. They both embody a passion for helping business with their future sustainability problems. With them in place, I’m confident we can build on our current offering and help business to make informed decisions and long-term sustainable choices.”
In his new role, Waller will be responsible for creating new data-led propositions to help clients bridge the gap between their sustainability ambitions and effective actions. Prior to Emex, he co-founded VisiQuate, a data analytics company leveraging complex data and machine learning to reduce administrative waste in the healthcare industry. He also co-founded a real estate development and consulting company working for investors and private equity firms on projects in multi and single family, hospitality, gaming, and retail.
“Sustainability has always been passion of mine. In the face of today’s climate crisis, it will be at the forefront of all businesses concerns. Emex is leading the way with its partners in prompting these discussions by leveraging data and providing the actionable solutions for change.”
As a Chief Marketing Officer, Allspaugh will be responsible for elevating the Emex brand to be a category leader in sustainability measurement and business performance insights, as well as attracting the talent needed to address the complexity of sustainability measurement and business performance insights. Allspaugh brings three decades of branding and marketing agency experience, most recently serving as SVP, Associate Partner, Brand and Marketing Strategy at VSA Partners. He previously sat on the Sappi NA Sustainability Council from 2016-2021.
“Sustainability is the most complex challenge of our generation and there is no one-size-fits-solution. But there is a universal need for better quality data collection across the complex aspects of health, safety, environment, and people. Quality data collection inevitably leads to more accurate insights and better decision-making. Sustainability isn’t an endpoint, but an endless pursuit of better. We are here to serve the businesses and their partners who want to be transparent about their actions towards people and the planet.”
