Jive names CFO, unveils Clearstep community

Today, Jive Software announced impressive customer growth over the past year, increasing its customer base by 25%—which includes working with 15% of the Fortune 500. And that growth has led to other positive changes for Jive, most notably the hiring of a CFO.

Jive named Bryan LeBlanc as Chief Financial Officer. Mr. LeBlanc brings nearly 20 years of finance experience at public high-tech and software companies to Jive, and will be responsible for all finance and administrative functions of the business.

In other news, Jive has announced the launch of Clearstep, a community dedicated to fostering the conversations about Enterprise 2.0, the adoption of social media technology to improve work within more traditional corporations.

Ever wish you could find someone working on social media or Enterprise 2.0 efforts at other companies, same as you? Wish you could pick their brain about how the heck they justified the implementation cost? Found that elusive ROI? Tricks to get employees to use it? Best way to communicate your new online community to your brand fanbase?
