“I am thrilled to help lead Avertium in its next stage,” said Carroll. “I am grateful for the employees who have built this leading cyber fusion company, and I intend to continue the Company’s growth trajectory.”
Mike Biggee, co-founder and Managing Partner at Sunstone Partners, stated, “We are very excited to have Bill Carroll join us to take Avertium to the next level. Bill’s experience in leading scalable, technology-enabled companies will bring a wealth of wisdom to the company.
