Attentive Inc, the Delaware based business management software provider for landscaping and other outdoor services industries, has brought Shawn Prince onboard as its head of business development.
The announcement comes days after the company raised $5 million from Sequoia India’s Surge Fund and InfoEdge Ventures. According to Attentive, the appointment is a part of the company's vision of bringing business management software that promotes productivity and growth to the $200 billion outdoor services industry.
“We are excited to have Shawn onboard and lead our business development in the U.S.,” said Shiva Dhawan, Co-founder & CEO of Attentive. “Shawn is an established leader in the landscaping industry. With over 17 years of experience in the industry across sales and operations, he understands the problems faced by the industry, which aligns with our vision of being problem-first in building solutions.”
Prince will lead business development for Attentive’s software products for the landscaping and other outdoor services businesses.
“Attentive’s automated software is the breakthrough the commercial landscaping industry has been waiting for. I have worked long enough in the industry to realize the value Attentive is bringing to the table. I’m looking forward to adding value to the team and driving business growth with Attentive,” he said.
Prior to joining Attentive, Prince worked with Continuum Services as the VP of business development. Before that, he held multiple positions with BrightView, including regional sales leader, business development executive and branch manager. He started his career with The Brickman Group (now BrightView Landscapes) and worked there for 10 years in business development and operations.
Attentive is also all set to launch its end-to-end sales automation platform on Aug 8.
