Simfoni, a Spend Intelligence and Spend Automation solution, brings on David Bush as CEO of Spend Automation

Simfoni, the next-gen digital solutions provider for Spend Intelligence and Spend Automation, has just today announced a new addition to its executive suite. David Bush, a 30-year veteran and leading subject matter expert in the fields of procurement, enterprise contract management and supply management, will be stepping in as CEO of Spend Automation.

Simfoni’s Spend Automation platform includes a fully digital procurement suite that enables CFOs to level up their procurement efforts, simplifying the sourcing and purchasing of materials and supplies, eliminating waste and improving efficiencies across the organisation. 

In his new role, Bush will spearhead Simfoni’s expansion efforts, helping Chief Financial Officers (CFOs) of midsize businesses in their efforts to digitise, streamline operations, reduce costs and transform their procurement processes. Previously, Bush has served as Chief Revenue Officer of SpendHQ, a spend analytics solution provider, was Co-founder and CEO of IASTA, an industry-leading SaaS-based strategic sourcing and spend management solutions company where he continued to serve as Chief Revenue Officer.

Bush began his career in the early days of SaaS-based eCommerce, co-founding EcoSearch Environmental Resources, a leading innovator that revolutionised delivery of geo-coded environmental risk data. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Science and Management from Indiana University – Bloomington. 

Of his new role at Bush commented: “Simfoni is in the vanguard of spend intelligence and automation, with a great success trajectory and undeniable value proposition for its global clients.”

“For me, this is an enormous opportunity to join one of the hottest vendors in procurement at precisely the right time, as the organisation hits a major inflexion point. I am thrilled to help Simfoni further its mission to provide turn-key spend automation products to an entirely new audience that was previously unable to access best-in-class procurement – midsize businesses.”

“Over the last three decades, David Bush has spearheaded business development and operations for some extremely well-respected organisations,” said Chirag Shah, Chairman, Simfoni. “His expertise in procurement and his ability to drive revenue growth make him an invaluable asset to Simfoni as we prepare for rapid expansion in 2021 and beyond. We are delighted to welcome David to our team and look forward to working together with him to take our Spend Automation offering to a wider market.”
