FM:Systems Introduces Chris Peacock as CTO and Michael Hines as Vice President of Global Partnerships

RALEIGH, N.C., December 8, 2021 — FM:Systems, provider of the most scalable and intuitive all-in-one digital workplace platform, today announced two new leadership hires to support the company’s significant growth. In the wake of 300+% growth that earned the company a place on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 list, FM:Systems welcomes Chris Peacock as its new Chief Technology Officer and Michael Hines as Vice President of Global Partnerships.

As CTO, Peacock will focus on accelerating FM:Systems’ technological leadership in the workplace solutions industry. He is a seasoned executive who has delivered large-scale distributed systems and infrastructure across disciplines and industries. His data science expertise and focus on organizational efficiency at scale will be critical as FM:Systems continues to expand its product portfolio and internal technology team.

In the short term, Peacock will oversee integration of the recently acquired WizzPass visitor management technology into the FM:Systems portfolio. Long term, he intends to ensure FM:Systems consistently brings best-in-class capabilities and products to market that help its customers maximize their workplace investments and simplify the complexities of a hybrid workforce.

“FM:Systems has proven its ability to deliver robust and highly usable solutions that support the entire organization, and I’m thrilled about the opportunity to build out such an impactful portfolio at such a unique point in time,” said Peacock. “I’m confident that we’ll continue to innovate at a breakneck pace to help our customers take full advantage of real-time insights and technologies such as IoT as they navigate the future of work.”

As another important new leadership hire, Michael Hines joins FM:Systems as Vice President of Global Partnerships. He brings more than 24 years of professional experience, almost exclusively in developing channels and alliances to the role. His priorities include onboarding new partners and further enabling existing partners in the Channel Program, introducing FM:Systems to new markets, driving revenue growth through partners, and overseeing the channel sales team as it continues to grow.

“The FM:Systems channel team already has strong partnerships with companies like JLL, AMS, EDD, Little and RSP, and my goal is to make sure those partnerships remain strong while onboarding others as well,” said Hines. “While our partners deeply understand our product portfolio and customer industries, my priority is to establish a repeatable and successful Channel Program that ensures all our channel customers always enjoy maximum value from our innovative solutions.”
