Commenting on the transition which is effective April 2nd, Mr Einarsson said “I am proud of all that we have achieved over the past 12 years to build Tempo from a simple proprietary solution for time tracking, to a rapidly expanding software business with revenues of $22 million and global clients. After more than a decade serving in this leadership capacity, it’s time to be handing over the baton and Gary brings a breadth of expertise that will be invaluable in the next phase of Tempo’s expansion. I wish him and the rest of the team every success going forward.”
