Indianapolis-based Axia Technology Partners has selected Don Scifres as chief operating officer. Scifres, who is co-founder of VisionTech Partners and VisionTech Angels, previously held leadership positions at Columbus-based Cummins Inc. (NYSE: CMI) and SmartFile in Indy.
Scifres will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the company.
"Don’s core values and belief system are entirely in line with AxiaTP’s mission, making him a perfect fit for our company’s culture," said Josh Ross, managing partner of AxiaTP. “He also has a tremendous amount of experience in high-paced, fast-growing companies. This, in addition to his experience with angel investing, will help ensure AxiaTP is properly capitalized as we continue expanding the Kerauno product nationally and internationally."
The addition is the latest element in the continued growth of AxiaTP, which has increased its staff by 50 percent since March. The company says it expects to hire 20 more employees by the fourth quarter.
