I’m incredibly proud of the amazing people who have helped us build the company, its offerings and more importantly its reputation to what it is today. Stepping down as CEO of the Services Group will allow me the opportunity to focus on the growth of the product side of our company”. – Sean Fitzpatrick
In his role as CEO, Tayo will be responsible for overseeing all aspects of the Service Group’s functions including but not limited to finance, business operations, and service delivery.

VersaFile is well-positioned for future profitable growth, and I have full confidence that Tayo will continue to advance our success.”
