Decisiv Inc., provider of an advanced Web-based technology designed to enable more informed and timely decisions critical to maintaining commercial vehicles, announced today, April 27, that Peter T. Garahan, acting CFO, has joined the Decisiv board of directors. Garahan brings more than 30 years of executive-level business experience to Decisiv, including roles at private and public companies where his financial management skills were instrumental in raising funds through public offerings and through venture and strategic financing.
“Peter Garahan’s background and extensive knowledge of financing growth-stage businesses will help us position the company for rapid growth,” says Dick Hyatt, president of Decisiv, based in Glen Allen, Va. “As the use of the Decisiv Service Management Platform by fleets, service providers and OE truck manufacturers and component suppliers expands, his experience in related industries will also be very valuable as we refine our market strategy.”
Garahan, currently a real estate developer, served earlier in his career as executive vice president of Mitchell International, a significant player in the automotive collision estimating business. Other roles he’s held included serving as a senior financial executive at three publicly traded companies and as a senior operating executive of four private companies. He also has served on the board of directors of several private and publicly traded companies.
Developed over nearly eight years, the Decisiv Service Management Platform (DSMP) currently is in use by about one-third of the OE dealer and distributor community, as well as an increasing number of fleets, according to the company, and is revolutionizing customer relationships and streamlining the fleet-dealer service management process.
