Fusion Risk Management Appoints Proven Software Industry Leader Michael Campbell as CEO

Fusion Risk Management, Inc. (“Fusion”), a leading provider of business continuity and risk management software and services, today announced it has named Michael Campbell as CEO. Campbell’s appointment follows the recent growth capital investment from Vista Equity Partners (“Vista”) and is the latest step in Fusion’s long-term strategic plan to globally scale the business and strengthen Fusion’s leadership position in business continuity and risk management.

Earlier in his career, he was a successful entrepreneur, founding Campbell Software in 1989, which was eventually acquired by SAP in 1999.

“As today’s risk landscape continues to evolve, I see tremendous opportunity for us to help the way global organizations navigate the convergence of risk and resiliency. Fusion has established itself as the market leader with its global customer base and seasoned executives and is even stronger now that it is backed by the resources and expertise of Vista,” said Michael Campbell, Fusion CEO.  “I am excited to be part of a global team and look forward to building on the company’s tremendous accomplishments to drive the next phase in Fusion’s growth as it continues to revolutionize the way organizations manage risk.”

“We founded Fusion with a goal to help organizations prepare, manage and act in any situation by equipping them with tools to be successful.  The incredible growth we’ve experienced in the last 13 years, combined with our expansion into risk, makes this the ideal time to grow our executive leadership team so that we are best positioned for our future success,” said David Nolan, Founder and Strategic Advisor for Fusion.  “I am so proud of the amazing people, products, community, and culture we have created. As we look toward our next stage of global growth, I’m thrilled to continue working with the team, focusing on market and product strategy as well as expanding the customer base.”

Navy Federal Credit Union Chooses Fusion Risk Management for Business Continuity Management Solution

Fusion Risk Management, Inc. (“Fusion”), a leading provider of business continuity and risk management software and services, today announced that Navy Federal Credit Union, the largest credit union in the world, has selected the Fusion Framework System for business continuity management. The Fusion Framework System is a cloud-based management system designed to build programs focused on integrated risk management, business continuity, IT disaster recovery, third-party management, and crisis and incident management.

Navy Federal selected Fusion after an extensive vetting process of various solutions. The organization had previously used a legacy software as a service (SaaS) system, in which some of the Business Continuity Program’s management took place outside of the system. This made data management challenging and difficult to maintain, as it was not virtually stored in one system.

When the organization discovered Fusion, it was attracted to the Fusion Framework System’s ease of use and ability to process and update business continuity plans and data in one system. This eliminated the need for spreadsheets or other processes outside of the solution and allowed users to easily log on to the system from virtually anywhere. It also created an environment in which Navy Federal could easily track its compliance with regulations and ensure it was prepared to provide data and other information in the event of an audit.

“We were looking for a solution that was intuitive and made it possible for users to access their dashboard anytime, anywhere,” said Rebecca Nieves, Navy Federal Credit Union Manager of Business Continuity. “All of our data is also maintained and updated automatically within the Fusion Framework System, ultimately making it more accessible to our team members.”

“Fusion Risk Management is proud to work with such a respected institution like Navy Federal Credit Union,” said Fusion Chief Revenue Officer Paul Ybarra. “The Fusion Framework System is designed for organizations like theirs, that are looking for ways to stay compliant and secure, while having all data, planning, and best practices easily accessible for all users. This process is already underway now that we have established our partnership, and we look forward to supporting Navy Federal Credit Union for years to come.”
