Greenville, S.C. — Kopis, the oldest and most established custom software development and consulting firm in the Upstate, has announced 2 significant promotions within its leadership team.
Adam Drewes has been named the firm’s Chief Marketing Officer, and Kevin Wentzel will now formally operate as the organization’s Chief Operations Officer. Both Drewes and Wentzel have been promoted from within the organization.
“We knew that in light of some significant expansion across the region over the last 18 months, we needed additional support and focus in leadership to keep up with our company’s growth,” says Andy Kurtz, founder and CEO of Kopis. “Both Adam and Kevin have taken on greater and greater managerial responsibilities in the past few years, so it made sense to hire these positions from the inside and allow both of them to focus on deeper growth within their respective areas of expertise.”
Kurtz, Drewes, and Wentzel credit a corporate culture that challenges and fully engages team members for their company’s recent growth. In his new role, Drewes will tackle the challenge of raising brand awareness for Kopis and perfecting the company’s deep content messaging and digital marketing initiatives, while leading and growing the firm’s sales & new customer engagement initiatives. Wentzel, meanwhile, will ensure the company runs efficiently and profitably and that they continue to exceed client expectations by delivering high-quality, high-value custom software solutions, mobile app development, SQL Server Managed Services solutions, Business intelligence, and more.
According to Kurtz, “these new positions dovetail with existing talents. Adam has worked closely with our team, so he has an intimate working knowledge of our strengths, capacity and our positioning goals. Kevin has been supporting others in his role for years, which strengthens his management and communication skills.”
