SmartSearch is growing!
Introducing Erik Enright, CEO
I am super excited to announce that SmartSearch just appointed a new CEO. Erik Enright joined the SmartSearch family on September 1st, 2022, and I’m confident we’ve found someone who will help us further the company’s mission as we continue to improve our products and services.
I will still retain my role as President and CTO, overseeing product development and operations of the company. At the same time, Erik is tasked with helping us forge a path of growth that will benefit our clients, partners, and employees.
As you may know, I have been with the company as CTO for 25 years. Two years ago, I took over as President and CTO. As a shareholder and a managing partner, I seek nothing more than to see SmartSearch grow into all I know it can be and continue to be a company that inspires and encourages its employees and clients through rock-solid products and services that help make lives better.
Adding a CEO has been part of our plans for future growth since becoming a HUDDL3 Group company, and I could not be happier to have Erik join our team.
So who is Erik Enright? Erik is recognized as a leader in the Northeast Ohio business community “Top 40 Under 40” and always puts the customer first when building products and businesses. Early in his career, he developed a broad skill set while helping to grow and scale OEConnection from 4 people to over 250 employees. It was at OEConnection where he learned the power of an ecosystem, pioneering eCommerce, Order Management, and Supply Chain Management Solutions for over 14,000 dealerships and 50,000 repair facilities in the US and Canada.
Building on this, Erik joined CardinalCommerce, reporting to the founder as a Vice President responsible for scaling the technology teams (by 300%) and the software capabilities, including the development of consumer authentication products for Merchants, Issuers and Digital Wallet Payment providers, which led to the successful acquisition by Visa in 2017.
In 2018, Erik joined Top of Minds Networks. He gained a deep insight into the value of Marketing Automation and CRM by partnering with the CEO and founders to complete a platform migration, creating and launching new revenue streams through add-on products, and increasing customer value by achieving an average of 4x loan origination increase using the Surefire Mortgage Marketing Engine.
Erik joins SmartSearch just in time for the release of our new Version 23 and the upcoming Staffing World conference. Come see us at the Expo to meet Erik and preview our latest innovations.
