Posted: Updated:
INDIANAPOLIS -

A spinoff of Indianapolis-based tech company Axia Technology Partners has filled some key leadership roles. Kerauno LLC, which offers a communications workflow platform, says the new execs will help the company in its quest to become a global technology leader.

Josh Ross, founder and chief executive officer of Kerauno, says each of the new leaders will play pivotal roles in guiding the company and its platform going forward. They include:

  • Jeff Stickel, Chief Technology Officer - Responsible for scaling the Kerauno platform and leading the company's engineering team.
  • Scott Whitlock, Vice President of Sales - Responsible for building a worldwide channel partner network for the platform
  • Jim McIntosh, Director of Product Management - Responsible for driving the "strategic product roadmap" for Kerauno
  • Michael Taylor, Senior Cloud Systems Engineer - Responsible for architecting, designing, implementing, automating, integrating and “always on” services availability for Kerauno’s customers

"These key leaders, when combined with our existing talent and future team members, position Kerauno for the lofty success that we are committed to achieving," said Don Scifres, chief operating officer of Kerauno. "The quality of these new colleagues as people, as strategic thinkers, and results-driven leaders is unsurpassed in our industry. Each one has experienced great success in their prior endeavors, and collectively, we are confident that even greater achievements lie ahead."

Kerauno was spun off into its own independent software company under the AxiaTP umbrella in December.
