Axiometrics Inc., a provider of data and analysis on the multifamily housing sector, recently announced that Keith Walters has been appointed chief operating officer. Walters was an outside director of Axiometrics prior to becoming the company’s COO.
Previously, Walters was president and COO of IT managed services provider Sagiss LLC. While at Sagiss, he led the company through a complete change in its business delivery model, gaining recognition for the company in the MSPMentor 100 as one of the top IT-managed service providers in the U.S. Prior to Sagiss, he served as vice president and general manager of Global Program and Performance Management for Keane, a $1 billion, Boston-based services company for which he was also a member of the executive management team. Walters had previously built another consulting firm into a regional leader prior to its acquisition by Keane.
“Keith has been a key adviser in helping shape Axiometrics’ growth, which has averaged over 30 percent since 2008 but is up by 40 percent in 2011,” said Ron Johnsey, founder and president of Axiometrics. “His operational talents, technical background and entrepreneurial spirit will be invaluable in taking us to the next level and helping us pursue new opportunities for the most sophisticated, cost-effective solutions available for making investment and operational decisions in the multifamily market.
“I have worked as an outside adviser to Axiometrics since 2007 and am excited about joining the company full-time to help build it into the unquestioned leader for multifamily research, information, and consulting services,” said Walters. “Ron Johnsey has a well-earned position as of one of the true thought leaders in the multifamily industry and has built a company that delivers excellence in value and service. This existing foundation, along with the long-term prospects for the multifamily market, creates a tremendous amount of potential that I hope to build upon in the coming years.”
