Aasonn, which is backed by LLR Partners, has named Randy Womack as CEO. Previously, Womack worked at Castlight Health where he served as chief operating officer. Aasonn is a global HR strategy, tech and outsourcing firm.


NAPERVILLE, Ill., Oct. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Aasonn, LLC, a global HR Strategy, Technology & Outsourcing Company, today announced the appointment of Randy Womack as Chief Executive Officer.

Mr. Womack joins Aasonn with more than 15 years of experience in the Software as a Service (SaaS) marketplace and 25 years in technology and operations. He most recently served as Chief Operating Officer of Castlight Health, where he helped pioneer the Enterprise Healthcare Cloud and led Sales, Marketing, Product, and Operations to a successful IPO in four years. Previous to Castlight, he was the VP of Operations and Chief Information Officer for eight years at SuccessFactors, an SAP Company, which built the leading solution for Cloud People Management. Mr. Womack also held sales, technology and operations leadership roles at Greylock, Digital River and Dell, and he has had the rare privilege to help lead three early stage startups to go public (CSLT, SFSF, DRIV).

“I couldn’t be more pleased to welcome Randy to Aasonn as our Chief Executive Officer. His success and deep experience in the SaaS marketplace and with rapidly-growing technology organizations will bring valuable insights to our organization on a broad range of strategies,” says Allen Peterson, Founder and President of Aasonn. “There is a transformation that is going on in the Cloud and Business Process as a Service (BPaaS) market–and Aasonn is on the leading edge of that. We look forward to having Randy lead us on our journey.”

In June, Aasonn announced the completion of a $20M investment by private equity firm LLR Partners. The financing is being used to further develop the company’s Employee Cloud HR Business Process as a Service offering and expand its existing implementation business globally. Aasonn’s BPaaS solution will deliver outsourced HR and Benefits services via cloud sourced technology, enabling companies to standardize their HR processes against industry best practices. The solution will automate workflows, access advanced reporting and analytics, improve efficiency while lowering costs, and at the same improve the employee’s experience.

As SAP SuccessFactors’ most experienced global partner with over 2,000 global enterprise customers in 30 countries, Aasonn will build on its leadership position as an HR and Talent Management technology consulting firm to lead the revolution of the BPO industry into the cloud with a SuccessFactors HR and Benefits BPaaS solution.

“I am thrilled to join Aasonn. Aasonn is the industry leader in helping HR leaders to execute their vision of moving their HR and Benefit transformations to the cloud. Adding to the success of their cloud experience, HR and Benefit thought leaders are now looking to apply the same SaaS principles of leveraging best practices and eliminating their individual redundant investments to back office operations. We have a huge opportunity to improve the employee’s total experience with HR and Benefits while significantly lowering operating costs. ”
