A VIPSoftware spokesperson told MSPmentor via email that Garbutt’s role as a board member will consist of being a strategic advisor in the business, where he will assist the company with corporate governnance and finance.
Garbutt was offered the position because of his experience in the insurance vertical and his winning track record in helping startup companies, the spokesperson said.
The spokesperson added that VIPSoftware CEO James Makris, a colleague of Garbutt’s for more than 12 years, approached Garbutt to ask him to join the board. Garbutt had plenty of praise for the company, too.
