Reporting to Deltek President and CEO Mike Corkery, Tilsley will work to grow the company by progressing its financial strategy and boosting operational efficiency, the Herndon, Virginia-based company announced on Thursday.
Corkery said he is thrilled to welcome Tilsley as Deltek’s global finance organization lead and is “confident he will contribute to our culture and results by driving continuous improvements” in line with the organization’s strategic, financial and operational goals.
“His proven success delivering new business initiatives and leading the integration of large global acquisitions make him a great asset to our team,” he added.
Tilsley has previously held multiple CFO positions, most recently at Renaissance Learning, a Software-as-a-Service and learning analytics company that offers cloud-based assessment, reading and math tools for pre-K-12 schools and districts.
Prior to joining Renaissance Learning, he served as CFO of Cox Automotive’s Software and Media Solutions Group, during which he integrated online auto sales brands into one high growth, high margin business. His earlier executive roles include positions at NASDAQ, Reuters and Associated Press Television.
“I’m very excited to join Deltek to continue building on the incredible work they’ve done over the years,” Tilsley said.
“I’m looking forward to working with the incredibly talented Deltek team to drive our business operations and strategy forward and support growth while continuing to deliver best-in-class service to our customers around the world,” he added.
Tilsley’s appointment follows another recent leadership change within Deltek: the selection of Dinakar Hituvalli as senior vice president and chief technology officer. The 25-year Oracle veteran joined Deltek in April and now guides the company’s cloud and engineering operations and global enterprise resource planning product innovation activities.
