The board of directors for Arizona-based Levementum, which has an office in Indianapolis, has appointed a new chief executive officer. Michael Burton, who previously served as senior vice president for the company, will begin his new role in June.

Levementum provides digital marketing, eCommerce and Internet of Things consulting services. Burton joined the company in March 2016 after serving as director of services for Salesforce. 

Burton will succeed Levementum co-founder and CEO Doug Guilbeau, who will continue with the company in a larger role on the board of directors as a technical and market strategy adviser.

"Over the past 12 years, we’ve grown Lev into a leading digital consultancy that develops technology solutions for some of the biggest consumer brands in the world," said Guilbeau. "As Lev continues its rapid-growth strategy, there is no better person than Michael Burton to lead the company as we enter our next exciting chapter of growth and innovation. Michael brings to the role tremendous respect, talent and a deep understanding of our ecosystem."

Burton is a graduate of Indiana University and is an emeritus board member with the TechPoint Foundation For Youth.

Levementum last month announced it had secured a $4 million round of funding and sold its SugarCRM practice to focus on its consultancy efforts.  In addition to Arizona and Indianapolis, the company has offices in California, Texas and Michigan.
