The last year has been an exciting one for WhitePages, full of big consumer and enterprise product launches, growing profits and revenues, and acquisitions. And as we prepare for more of the same, I am proud today to officially welcome Jason Eglit as our new CFO! With more than 15 years of experience in strategy development, mergers & acquisitions, and operations planning & execution, Jason will help us carry forward our recent track-record of outstanding execution and positive momentum.
In this new role for the company, Jason will be responsible for all finance & accounting, recruiting, corporate development, legal, and human resources functions. Prior to WhitePages, he served as principal at Bayside (H.I.G.) Capital, where he led investments across a variety of sectors, including retail financial services, industrial equipment, and telecommunications. Prior to H.I.G., Jason served as senior vice president of finance and operations at AdvancePath Academics, a for-profit educational venture, of which he was also co-founder. Jason began his career at Bain & Company, after earning an M.B.A. from The Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth. Jason also holds a M. S. in Engineering-Economic Systems from Stanford University, and a B.A with honors in Physics from Williams College.
As we continue on our growth trajectory and our business becomes increasingly complex, I know that Jason will play an integral role in guiding us towards smart strategic and operational decisions. Welcome, Jason, to the WhitePages team!
