Letter from our CEO
A bold vision for enterprise software
At Aurea, we often say that we are the “Netflix of business software.” This metaphor applies to our business model – customers have access to every product in our software portfolio – and our ambition. We don’t just sell software. We drive innovation by implementing targeted visions that benefit our customers’ businesses today and build the foundation for their success in the future.
We’re not afraid to go all in. We recognize that the future of work lives on the public cloud, and we invest accordingly. For our customers, that means more, faster digital transformation. It delivers unparalleled breadth and uncompromised security. It translates to economies of scale that we pass on to you as ongoing, tangible value.
Aurea by the numbers
Forward thinking from our people to our products:
As CEO of Aurea, Scott leads our executive team in defining our mission and strategy – which he balances with his passion for spending time with clients, understanding their business objectives and ensuring our solutions are designed to deliver success. Prior to Aurea, Scott served as the President and CEO of Artemis International, a global project and portfolio management software company serving hundreds of Global 2000 companies across the world. Under his leadership, Artemis arrested a multi-year trend of revenue decline with three consecutive years of double-digit growth while also tripling profitability. In 2012, Scott led Artemis through the successful acquisition and integration of Accept Corporation, a SAAS-based product planning software company.
President and Chief Revenue Officer
As President and Chief Revenue Officer, Ben believes in creating customer value relentlessly. While other software companies chase revenue at all costs, Ben focuses on building a highly engaged, inspired customer base. He directs our commercial team to focus on “we,” only closing deals that create long-term value for both our customers and our company. He’s an expert at aligning and inspiring a 100% remote workforce, taking bold action to continuously improve CSAT, and helping our customers to do the same. Under Scott Brighton’s leadership, Ben has helped Aurea grow from 250 customers to over 4000 — creating the frameworks that simplify and connect every aspect of our business (from processes to people).
Chief Diversity Officer

Her mission is to launch Aurea’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) journey and to work with peer DEI officers across the customer base to jointly define the role technology will play in helping realize their commitment to creating diverse, equitable, and inclusive organizations.
