MeetingsNet has named our own JR Sherman one of this year’s 23 "Changemakers."  Many of our clients have been named Changemakers in past years, but this is the first time one of our leadership team has received this honor.

I’m both pleased and thrilled that MeetingsNet has recognized the significant changes that JR has spearheaded on behalf of our organization. He has truly transformed our company through organic and acquisition growth strategies into a real game-changer for all of the many niche point solution technologies that comprise our industry marketplace.  We’ve always felt that it was inevitable that, as one of the original leading meetings and events technology companies out there, we should be the first to provide true enterprise, end-to-end technology not just for our clients, but for the entire industry — including suppliers, associations, and intermediaries.

The transformation under JR’s leadership started about three years ago through the acquisition of StarCite by ACTIVE Network. Then we migrated to the Smart Events CloudTM, followed by the sale to Vista Equity Partners.  Then most recently, we were strategically split off from ACTIVE Network and merged with Lanyon, the leading and dominant corporate hospitality program technology, followed very quickly behind that by the recent acquisition of Passkey, the dominant technology for group room block management. 

Through it all, JR was leading the charge and executing our strategies to transform our combined companies into a major powerhouse for the industry ecosystem.  Congratulations, my friend and our leader. You have always listened to all of us who surround you. And you've never made any of us feel like our ideas and thoughts were crazy. 

Thank you to Barbara Scofidio and all of the staff at MeetingsNet for making a really great choice in naming our JR Sherman as one of your Top 23 Changemakers.
