Executive Profile
Randolph Hoffman

         Randolph is the President and CEO of Computer Analytics Corp. (CAC), a provider of market research and analytics software.  He assumed his present role in 2004 when the company’s annual revenues were $3.5 million, with a net loss of $500K.

Randolph quickly recognized that CAC was not targeting mid-market clients, focusing instead on major accounts.  He viewed mid-size accounts as a market segment seeking to grow their businesses, while also being sensitive to their cash flow.  Randolph developed market penetration strategies targeting these accounts and providing payment plan options to address their cash flow issues.  Within two years, CAC increased annual sales revenue from $3.5 million to $12.3 million.

Randolph then refocused on major accounts and restructured his sales force to become industry specific.  His approach required a sales team with strong expertise in specific market segments, earning credibility with prospective clients.  Within three years, revenues in this market doubled and annual company sales grew to $15 million.

Randolph reduced operating cost by 15% by bringing Software Engineers in-house.  He developed off the shelf software that was industry specific and more affordable, which opened up the mid-size market even more and grew annual revenues to over $20 million.

Randolph worked closely with his CFO to improve internal cost controls and methods of tracking expenses on a real-time basis.  The company’s finances improved dramatically resulting in the opening of three new offices in previously untapped geographic regions.

Randolph earned his Master of Business Administration degree in Marketing from Fordham University and lives in Westchester County, New York, with his wife and two children.
