Fishers-based app developer Bluebridge has announced the acquisition of Indianapolis-based HR and employee engagement consulting firm Cadence Consulting. As a result, Cadence founder Todd Richardson will join Bluebridge as its Chief People Officer.

Bluebridge says Richardson, a former executive vice president of administration at ExactTarget, will offer his expertise in employee engagement not only within Bluebridge but to the company's newest customers. 

"We spend one-third or more of our daily lives working, and I believe it’s our duty as business leaders and owners to provide an environment where all employees can find fulfillment," said Richardson. "I’m thrilled to join and support the Bluebridge team as we grow and expand our own product line to offer an employee engagement solution that manifests strong company culture for companies of all sizes across all industries."

The company says Richardson will play a vital role in supporting Bluebridge as it breaks into the employee engagement sector.

"Todd has truly dedicated his life to building strong company cultures and solving the employee engagement puzzle," said Santiago Jaramillo, CEO and founder of Bluebridge. "His experience growing and implementing employee engagement best practices across thousands of businesses is invaluable for the future success of Bluebridge."
