OpenGov Names New President, Two Experienced Advisers

The company's chief revenue officer will become the president, while Risk Management Solutions CEO Karen White and Premise CEO Maury Blackman, who formerly led Accela, will come on as advisers.

OpenGov has promoted its chief revenue officer to president of the company and added two notable tech industry veterans, Maury Blackman and Karen White, as advisers.

David Reeves, the new president, has served as CRO for OpenGov since 2015, according to his LinkedIn profile — a period of quick growth for the company. During that timeframe, the company expanded its software to include open data, budget collaboration and publishing, performance measurement and management, and more. It also acquired Peak Democracy, which helps with citizen engagement, and according to a press release OpenGov’s revenue increased tenfold.

"David is an incredible partner to me and the executive team, and his appointment comes on the heels of a record-breaking 2018, in which the company surpassed 2,000 governments using our software," CEO Zac Bookman said in the statement.

White and Blackman bring about 25 years of tech industry experience apiece. Blackman served as CEO of Accela for more than 15 years before he stepped down, began investing in companies and took leadership of a data-gathering startup called Premise. White is the CEO of Risk Management Solutions, and has held leadership posts at Oracle, Addepar and Syncplicity as well.

Ben Miller is the associate editor of data and business for Government Technology. His reporting experience includes breaking news, business, community features and technical subjects. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in journalism from the Reynolds School of Journalism at the University of Nevada, Reno, and lives in Sacramento, Calif.
