RizePoint®, the leading provider of quality management software, today announced that Chris Heaton, director of finance and operations at RizePoint, has been named as one of Utah Business’ Forty Under 40, an honor recognizing Utah’s exceptional talent.

“Chris has been a vital part of RizePoint’s transformation over the last three years,” said Frank Maylett, president and CEO of RizePoint. “Chris has a talent for using data to solve business problems and achieve incredible results. At RizePoint, he applies his fluency with disparate business systems and his ability to digest large amounts of data to create clear action plans.”

Heaton joined RizePoint in January 2015. In his first year, Heaton developed customer intelligence that allowed the sales team to identify growth opportunities based on usage metrics and ultimately quadrupled bookings from existing clients in his first year.

“My time at RizePoint has been the most exciting, the most challenging and the most rewarding part of my career,” Heaton said. “It’s an honor to be part of such a wonderful, dedicated, selfless and driven team. I’m humbled to be among such incredible recipients of the Utah Business Forty Under 40 award.”

A 15-year veteran of technology businesses, Heaton joined RizePoint from Hewlett-Packard Enterprise where he held multiple roles in controllership, FP&A, strategy, and sales finance. Prior to HPE, he worked in technology and management consulting at Sapient, consulting for General Motors, Enbridge, and the Department of Defense. Heaton holds an MBA from Duke’s Fuqua School of Business and degrees in computer science and economics from Brigham Young University.

Heaton will be recognized with this year’s Forty Under 40 honorees at an awards ceremony and luncheon held at The Grand America Hotel on February 9, 2018.
