RapidWorks Hires Tim Curran as CEO

RapidWords (formerly Rapid Applications Group), the leading ERP software solution for heavy equipment construction subcontractors, is pleased to announce the appointment of Tim Curran as chief executive officer, along with four highly experienced construction technology leaders to its executive team.

Co-founder Matthew Bullis will remain on the executive team as the chief strategy officer to focus on long-term strategy and innovation. This leadership expansion aims to fuel the company's continued growth and market expansions and follows recent growth equity financing from Wavecrest Growth Partners and MassMutual Ventures.

Curran expressed his excitement about the future of RapidWorks, stating, "I am thrilled to join the RapidWorks team and lead this exceptional company into its next phase of growth. Matt and his team have built an outstanding product suite that is making a significant impact in the heavy equipment construction services industry. With unparalleled industry domain expertise, combined with the new software executives, we look forward to strengthening RapidWorks' position as the industry leader."

RapidWorks provides a comprehensive software solution that enables heavy equipment construction subcontractors to optimize fleet utilization with modules like scheduling and job dispatching, telematics GPS tracking, mobile workforce labor tracking and payroll, plus customer ordering, billing and payments. RapidWorks customers quickly see improvements in their operations and cash flow, allowing them to focus on better serving their customers rather than manually managing the work. Customers in the concrete, hydrovac and crane sectors, including market leaders like Brundage-Bone, Concrete Pump Partners and Kinetic Industry, trust RapidWorks to manage their operations and gain performance and productivity insights.

Curran is the former CEO of Building Engines (acquired by JLL in 2021), Vela Systems (acquired by Autodesk in 2012) and Eleven Technology (acquired by Trimble in 2006), among others. Curran started his career in software development and implementation at Accenture and currently serves on the board of Knowify, a software company for labor-intensive subcontractor trades, and Polestar Global, the leader in maritime intelligence. 

Joining Curran is an experienced executive team including Brian Clarke as chief sales officer, Chris Martin as chief financial officer, Jim Hammel as chief customer officer and Peter Billante as chief product and marketing officer. Each executive brings significant leadership and SaaS expertise, along with decades of prior experience in construction management, fleet management, asset management, and transportation and logistics software companies. Altogether, the new leadership team will focus on growth of new and existing markets by expanding the product offering and increasing customer value.

Bullis shared his enthusiasm stating, "I am absolutely thrilled to welcome the new leadership team. They bring with them a wealth of experience and knowledge about the industry. Through our best-in-class software solution for management of heavy construction equipment, we have been involved in most concrete construction projects in the geographies we operate. Now, I'm excited to partner with this incredible team to fuel our growth in hydrovac excavation, crane services and beyond. Combined with our recent capital raise, the strength of our new management team will ensure RapidWorks becomes the solution of choice in the equipment-focused subcontractor market."
